Coconut muffin with lime icing

Coconut muffin with lime icing

Not at my best icing techniques, but one has to start somewhere, somehow ;-). So this is a muffin (it was a tray, but I managed to picture this one, the others where already gone) with dry coconut in it and some limezest in the batter as well as in the icing.

Ingredients: (makes 12)

  • 200g flour
  • 190g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 60g dried coconut
  • 50g butter
  • pinch of salt
  • baking powder
  • 150ml milk
  • 140g soft butter
  • 280g icing sugar
  • food colouring


  1. mix all the liquid ingredients in the blender;
  2. add the salt, the sugar, the coconut powder and the lime zest;
  3. add the flour and the baking powder;
  4. pour the mixtures in a muffin tin laid with paper cups and bake in a preheated oven at 180 °C for about 20 minutes;
  5. take out and leave to cool on a rack;
  6. mix the icing sugar with the butter, adding a spoon or two of lime juice and the zest;
  7. add also some food colouring and pipe the icing on the muffins.
