I love muffins, they are so versatile and delicious, I love looking for new muffin recipes on the internet that I think would be fabulous. Since its starting to get warm and sunny out I though how much fun would it be to make a pineapple coconut muffin. A little taste of summer for a Saturday morning. I have a basic muffin recipe that I’ve been using and I add in the fruit I’m craving in the moment. I hope you enjoy!
Pineapple and Coconut Muffins (makes 12 muffins)
Heat oven to 375 degrees
8 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 1/4 cup coconut sweetened flakes (divided, 3/4 cup will get on top of muffins)
1 cup crushed pineapple (drain out the juices)
1 1/4 cup flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Using a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar, adding the salt and milk. Mix the flour and baking powder together in a separate bowl. Add in 3/4 cup coconut into the mixer. When mixed together add the flour/baking powder. This recipe makes 12 muffins. Use muffin liners and add mix to the cups. Put a little sprinkling of the remaining coconut onto each muffin top.
Bake for about 22 minutes checking with a toothpick to see if they are done.
The crispy topping of the sweetened coconut is amazing. Petite tested and approved.
Enjoy your Saturday,
