I'm busy baking for a birthday at the moment but while I was getting the cakes done I had enough time and oven space to have a little experiment too and these were the result! I've named them Malibu muffins because the main ingredients are coconut and pineapple. Sadly I had no actual Malibu or that would have gone in too!
I had the idea for the combo from the contents of my fridge. I had a cup or so of light coconut cream and some pineapple that needed using up so I pulled out my old faithful muffin recipe that I add anything to and went for it. For 12 muffins you'll need:
1 cup unsweetened dessicated coconut
2 cups plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
5 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 cup coconut cream
1/2 cup canola oil
Chocolate chips and chopped pineapple to taste
Put all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Whisk the liquids together in a jug and then lightly mix into the dry stuff. Add the chocolate chips and pineapple before putting into muffin cases.
Bake at 180 degrees for about 20mins.
I used my silicone moulds which were perhaps not the best thing but it hasn't stopped the muffins from disappearing!
