#Recipe: Coconut Muffins

I had some leftover coconut and wanted to use it up. I had a hankering for muffins and though, 'why not', and set to making them. Now, I will share with you all since I have had so many requests.

Coconut Muffins

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sweetened coconut

METHOD
Preheat oven to 400c.
Melt the stick of butter, allowing it to cool afterwards but do not let it coagulate again.
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg. Add in the sugar, milk and vanilla. Mix well.
Line your muffin pan.
Add the melted butter slowly to the egg mixture. You do not want it too warm or it will cook the egg. You also only want to add a little at a time, mix, add some more, mix and keep going until its all in. Now add it to the dry ingredients you set aside and mix.
Do not over-mix. Lumpy is good!
Add 1/4 cup of coconut and mix.
Add the mixture to muffin pan. Fill almost to the top of the liner. Set aside when all are topped up.
Now, in a small sauce pan, add the other 1/4 cup of coconut. Turn the heat to med-high and keep stirring the coconut over the heat until it is lightly golden.
When it is golden, remove from heat. 
Using a small spoon, add some 'toasted' coconut across the top of the muffins. It gives it a streusel-like topping.
Now pop those bad boys in the oven and bake until the toothpick comes clean, or approximately 20-25 minutes, depending on your oven.

*Please note: The mixture is a basic muffin mix. If you want blueberry or some other flavor, just replace the first batch of coconut with desired flavor. Then omit the last step of toasting coconut. You can have any kind of muffin you want with this mix.*

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
