Coconut-Cranberry Muffins

Coconut milk gives these muffins a little more sweetness and a slightly denser texture than cakelike muffins. Use any other dried fruit you like in place of the cranberries--dried currants or chopped dried apricots, for example, would work well.

Cooking Light JANUARY 2005

  • Yield: 1 dozen (serving size: 1 muffin)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 2/3 cup light coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons sugar

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients (through salt) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir in cranberries; make a well in center of mixture. Combine coconut milk and next 4 ingredients (through egg), stirring well with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
