I have 2 great recipes for muffins.  Perfect for a Sunday Morning with a cup of tea.

Pineapple Coconut Crumb Muffins
Crumb topping:
1/3 Cup flour
1/3 Cup sweetened flaked coconut, chopped
3 Tb granulated sugar
3 Tb finely chopped roasted macadamia nuts
3 Tb butter, softened
Muffin Batter:
1 1/3 Cup flour
1/2 Granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 Cup sweetened coconut, chopped
2 large eggs
1/2 Cup vegetable oil
3 Tb unsweetened pineapple juice, reserved from canned pineapple
3/4 Cup drained canned unsweetened crushed pineapple

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line 12 cup regular muffin pan with liners or grease with non stick spray.
TOPPING: In a small bowl, combine flour, coconut, sugar and nuts.  Whisk together until blended.  With fingers or fork work butter in until mixture resembles course crumbs. and starts to come together.

MUFFINS: In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Whisk together until well blended. Stir in coconut.
In a medium bowl beat eggs, whisk in oil until well blended.  Stir in pineapple juice.
Add egg mixture to flour and stir just until combined.  Fold in pineapple.
Spoon into muffin pan, filling cups 2/3 full.  Crumble topping over batter.
Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until wooden pick comes out clean.  cool on wite rack for 5 minutes, remove from pan and cool on rack.

This next one is really good.

Buttermilk Spice Muffins
Muffin Batter:
1 Cup sugar
1/2 Cup butter
3 eggs
2 1/2 Cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 Cup PLUS 1 Tb Buttermilk
NUT TOPPING:
1/2 Cup sugar
1 Cup walnuts (finely chopped) Or use nut of your choice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Pre heat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl, cream sugar and butter.  When mixed add eggs and beat 1 more minute.
Sift the flour into a separate bowl together with baking soda nutmeg and cinnamon.
Add the flour and the buttermilk to the first mixture, mix at low speed until smooth.  Add the flour and buttermilk alternately in 3 additions.

Nut topping: Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.

Grease muffin pan or line with paper liners.
Fill each cup 2/3 full.  Add a full rounded tablespoon of nut topping on top of each muffin cup of batter. 
Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.
Yields 12 regular size muffins or If using jumbo muffin pans you will get 6 muffins and reduce temperature by 25 degrees and increase bake time 5 to 10 minutes.

To get the best flavor use fresh ground nutmeg.

Enjoy!!

Thank you Nikki!  Both sound very good .... especially the Pineapple one.   I already have all the ingredients for that  
Embarassed 
except a whisk .... I don't own a whisk.
When I bought that pastry thingy I looked at a whisk and decided, "nah, I haven't used that in 66 years - I don't need it now"  lol lol

Using a whisk makes it sound so professional.  But they sound so good.  Maybe the recipe will work almost as well without that?

Forks work as well as a whisk for something like this.  Whipping cream and egg whites are when you need a good whisk and good arms.

Hi Nancy just use your Kitchen Aide, it should have a whisk attachment.

Nikki - - - Thank you for these recipes. The pineapple/coconut is the one I will try first!!    


Just a note at Yahoo/NEWS  The Cyclone in Australia will cause the price of SUGAR to rise.  For us bakers, it might be good to stock up before the price increases. 

Have a GREAT DAY!      Sunshine again today, here in Michiana!!!     I am loving it.

I have absolutely no idea on fat and calories for the muffin recipe.  I had the muffins at a restaurant here called Mimi's Cafe and the recipes are on their website.  I suppose you could email them and ask if they have the information.  The should have it available in the restaurant for viewing.  I will check and see if it is on line..
OK, I checked on line and the only bakery item listed that has a calorie count is their bread, it is like a punpkin bread, anyway that is about 150 calories for 1 slice. (Sorry I looked at that!)  But there was nothing listed for the muffins.
