These are amazing! Even smelling the batter made my mouth water. Moist pineapple, orange and pecan muffins.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Arrange pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Then chop into small pieces.
Spray a 12-count standard sized muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk the flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl using a mixer, beat the butter and sugar for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix well. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and then add the yogurt, orange extract and orange zest. Add the flour mixture and mix just until combined. Fold in the pecans and pineapple.
Spoon the batter into the muffin pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
While the muffins are baking combine the glaze ingredients (sugar and orange juice) in a small cup.
Remove the muffins from the oven and place on a wire rack. While the muffins are still very warm, brush them with the orange glaze.
