Tropical Pineapple and Coconut Muffins

October 9, 2013

Before we get started I just want to let you know that when it comes to me cooking, I'm lazy and I rarely follow the recipe. This is no exception. I was loosely following the Pineapple Muffin recipe on HERE. I also have some additional changes written at the bottom of the blog post.
Prep time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 30 mins
Muffin Ingredients:

1 and a half cups plain flour
1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tin crushed pineapple (I used pineapple wedges)
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Icing Ingredients:

Icing sugar
Desiccated coconut (shredded coconut would look better)
Light cream cheese
2 tablespoon coconut milk/cream/flavour
Step 1: Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius and line muffin tray with muffin patties.

Step 2: In a large bowl, stir together flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, and pour in the tinned pineapple, egg, milk, cinnamon and melted butter. 
Step 3: Spoon mixture into muffin patties and cook for 30 minutes.

Step 4: When the muffins are cooked, take out of the tray and leave to cool.
Step 5: Add icing sugar, desiccated coconut, coconut milk/cream/flavour and cream cheese into a bowl and mix until you have the desired amount and consistency. This may change depending on how much icing you want.

Step 6: Ice muffins.

Step 7: Dip iced muffins in a bowl of coconut, add an extra piece of pineapple and an umbrella for a garnish!
~ ENJOY! ~

Changed I would make to this recipe are 1 cup of self raising flour and 1 cup of plain flour. More pineapple (excluding the juice). Smaller muffin patties to make more.
