Method
 
  • For the muffins:
  • 450ml milk
  • 3 eggs
  • Seeds of 1 vanilla pod
  • 200g dessicated coconut
  • 2 heaped tsps baking powder
  • 500g flour (I mixed 300g plain white flour with 200g wholemeal flour for these, as I prefer the texture, plus I'd like to think it's healthier!)
  • 3tsps cinnamon
  • 110g butter, melted
  • For the lime cream frosting:
  • 3 egg whites
  • 200g sugar
  • 300g butter, room temperature
  • Zest and juice of 2 limes
For the muffins:

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Add the vanilla seeds to the milk and whisk together with the eggs.

2. Mix flour, cinnamon, and coconut in a separate bowl, make a well in the centre and slowly stir in the egg mixture until it has all combined, making sure not to over-mix. Pour in the melted butter and fold under until it forms a smooth consistency.

3. Place 12 muffin cases in a muffin tray and pour a little mixture into each one, making sure not to overfill the cases, leaving a little space for the muffins to rise nicely. Bake in the centre of the oven for roughly 20 - 25 minutes. Stick a metal skewer into the middle of a muffin - if no dough sticks to the metal, they're ready. I usually switch the oven off and keep them in there with the door open for about 5 minutes, before taking them out and allowing them to cool outside. This stops them from sinking down.
