Thanks for your lovely comments on my last post.Thought I'd better share the recipe for Lime and coconut muffins, as I'd tempted your taste buds!
10 oz/ 300g Self raising Flour
1 tsp baking powder
5 oz/ 150g caster sugar
1 3/4 oz/50g dessicated coconut
1 beaten egg
7 fl. oz/200 mls coconut milk
3 1/2 fl.oz/100 mls sunflower or corn oil
Grated zest of 2 limes
1 tablespoon lime juice
3 oz cream cheese
2 oz butter
2 oz icing sugar
lime juice to taste (2-3 teaspoons)
sprinkle with shredded coconut and a strand or two of lime zest (or a small blob of lime marmalade!)
It is very easy! Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C/ Gas mark 6. Put 12 muffin cases in a muffin pan. Combine the wet ingredients in one bowl and the dry ones in another. Carefully add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold until just combined. Add to cases and cook for 20 minutes or until golden.
They are yummy straight from the oven, but if you can wait till they cool down try the topping with a sprinkling of coconut and zest shavings/ or a blob of lime marmalade swirled on.
Topping. beat the icing sugar into the butter. Beat in the cream cheese (I use philadelphia) and then add the lime juice and beat again.
