Pineapple Coconut Muffins

Labels: { , , }

Desiccated coconut is coconut meat which has been shredded and then dried to remove as much moisture as possible. If desiccated coconut is not available, regular dried coconut can be used as a replacement. Tropical pineapple and coconut are combined for a truly tropical indulgence.

  • 50 g Corn oil
  • 120 ml Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extractangiesrecipes
  • 400-500 g Canned pineapple, diced
  • 1/2 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp Unsweetened desiccated coconut flakes
  1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Sift flour then add baking powder, salt, sugar, and coconut and mix through.
  2. Beat eggs and vanilla extract well then add oil, milk and pineapple and stir well. Add dry mixture to wet ingredients and combine quickly. Take care not to over-mix.
  3. Divide the batter into 12 greased or lined muffin cups, about 3/4 full. Sprinkle the top of the muffins with coconut flakes and brown sugar. Bake for about 25 minutes.
