#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.*

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favor
