A method of making muffins with coconut
We pierce fresh coconut with a sharp knife in two places (where the recesses are located) and drain coconut milk from it. Next, you can cut the coconut with a hacksaw, and from the halves of the shell make candlesticks for giving, or insert a sharp knife between the two halves of the shell and divide the nut in half.
Mix butter and sugar in a 1: 1 ratio in a blender until a homogeneous, light yellow cream is obtained. The oil should be at room temperature, slightly softened.
Add wheat flour with baking soda or baking powder to the whipped mass, you can also use self-raising flour.
Put sour cream in the dough, then the egg. Gently mix so that there are no lumps left. Sour cream in this test can be replaced with kefir or yogurt.
Take half the fresh coconut. Remove the brown peel from it, rub it on a fine grater. About half a gram of coconut is about 80 grams of finished pulp. Add coconut and raisins to the dough, mix gently again.
To make cupcakes beautiful, look elegant and festive, be sure to use paper baskets for baking. We fill each basket with 2/3 dough, insert the almond nut into the center of the cake. Paper forms with dough must be placed in metal forms, otherwise the cupcakes will blur when baking.
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Bake muffins with coconut for 30 minutes on a medium shelf. It may take a little less or more time, depending on the characteristics of the oven. Cupcakes need to be taken out when they rise and turn golden brown. Cool them on the grill.
