Banana Coconut muffins - 200th post

Yippeee !!!! 200th post of my blog. I am so happy..

My  blogging journey so far has been a very memorable one. It has been almost 3.5 years now since I started blogging. I took a long break - close to 9 months last year. It wouldn't have been possible without all you wonderful readers, friends especially my fellow marathoners. I should also thank my family whom I put to test always and who always patiently wait until my photo session is over. So a big Thank you to one and all. A special thanks to the readers who take the time to leave their valuble feedback here.

Now muffins recipe is very versatile. So I was thinking what would a keralite do if asked to make muffin. Most of kerala's sweet and easy snacks are made with maida, banana, coconut and sugar. So I combined all these ingredients and made a wonderful muffin. We all loved it to the core. This is a very easy recipe since all the ingredients are easily available at home.


Unsalted butter - 65 grams
Eggs - 2
Milk - 175 ml
All purpose flour - 260 grams
Banana - 75 grams
Baking powder - a pinch
Coconut (grated) - 75 grams
Sugar - 125 grams


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and place oven rack in the center of the oven. Butter, or line with paper liners, 12 muffin cups.

In a bowl whisk together the eggs, and milk.

In another large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

With a rubber spatula or wooden spoon fold the wet ingredients, along with the melted butter, into the dry ingredients and stir only until the ingredients are moistened and combined. (Do not over mix or you will have tough muffins.) Finally add the grated coconut.

Evenly fill the muffin cups with the batter, using two spoons or an ice cream scoop. 

Place in the oven and bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for about 5-10 minutes before removing from pan.
