The return of cool evenings just before school starts always makes me think of one thing...
First up, Coconut Lime Muffins. Oh, let me tell you! These are fantastic. They are based on a recipe from Company's Coming: Mostly muffins. I have mentioned this recipe book before, I know, but it is such a great book. It's my go to for baked goods.
I changed it up a bit, for what I had on hand. Here's what I did this time:
Combine 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup unsweetened coconut, 4 tsp. baking powder.
Cream 1/3 cup butter with 3/4 cup sugar. Add 1 large egg and 2 tbsp lime zest.
1 cup coconut milk.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients alternating with the coconut milk (dry, milk, dry, milk, dry).
Scoop into 12 muffin cups.
Sprinkle with a little more shredded coconut.
Bake at 375F for 18 minutes.
While they are baking, bring to boil 1/2 cup sugar with 1/4 cup lime juice and 3 tbsp water. Heat and stir for 2 minutes until it starts to thicken. When the muffins come out, spoon a little of the glazing liquid over each muffin. Let stand for 5 minutes and then remove to a wire rack.
Another great recipe in the book...
Do you have a cookbook to recommend? Don't be shy.
Happy baking my friends.
I'll be sharing this over on Homestead Revival's barn hop
