Coconut, Pineapple and Macadamia Muffins
We originally had the intention of posting a monthly recipe but that has not happened that is for sure. We still bake every Friday for our Cake o' Clock friendship group and are always trying out new recipes but we just don't seem to find the time to sit at the computer to add them to our website. Hopefully in the months to come we will be adding more regularly. However yesterdays bake by Alison was just too good not to share with you all. So when you find the time give this cracking recipe a try. They were delicious!
1 cup diced dried pineapple
175gm butter, chopped
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup milk
100gm macadamias, chopped
Icing sugar, to dust
Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C. Line 12 cup muffin pan with muffin cases. Place pineapple into a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Stand for 5 minutes, drain and cool.
Step 2: Beat butter and sugar with electric beaters until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold in coconut, flour, pineapple pieces, chopped macadamias and milk with a large metal spoon.
Step 3: Spoon mixture into muffin cases and cook for 20 minutes or until muffins bounce back to the touch.
We hope you enjoy these delicious muffins because we know we certainly did!
