Introduction

I listed the following recipe on the previous n.com and it got a huge following as a fab recipe on it's own but also as a base for dried fruits, choc chips, iced, frosting. I normally double the below recipe and that makes 24 monster muffins and I mean HUGE. Hope you all like it as much as my oat so simple cookies :o))).

Ingredients

Serves: 12

For the Muffins

  • 250 millilitres unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 500 millilitres all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt flakes
  • 1 large egg
  • 250 millilitres reduced fat milk
  • 125 millilitres oil

For the Optional Topping

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut
  • halved candied cherries

Method

Coconut Muffins is a community recipe submitted by CookALot and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • In a medium bowl sift together dry ingredients except coconut. Set aside.
  • In a jug combine together egg, milk and oil. Add wet to dry and stir only until the dry ingredients are moistened, add coconut and stir again gently. The mixture will be happily lumpy.
  • Spoon into muffin papers filling each half to two thirds full. If topping sprinkle on some mix and top with a cherry. Bake in a 190/375 degree oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Additional Information

    IDEAS - Stir in choc chips before baking Put a blob of strawberry jam in the middle Eat with fresh strawberries or pineapple or mango for breakfast. Bake plain, break open whilst warm and eat with jam for breakfast Put in dried pawpaw or banana for a tropical taste. The list is endless.

    What 1 Other has said

    • A bit disappointed. I have just baked this recipe, and I think it calls for too much salt. My muffins turned out too salty, you can't even taste the sugar. Other than that: nice texture.
