This recipe was shared with me by my good friend and former neighbor, Bev Chicos. I have enjoyed many coffee/breakfast treats at her home over the years! The unusual thing about this recipe is that there is no baking soda or baking powder in these muffins and they still rise! I have come to the conclusion that the eggs must solve that problem. Let them cool 6-8 minutes before removing from the pan or use paper liners.
Blueberry Coconut Muffins:
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp grated lemon zest
2 large eggs
5 Tbsp whipping cream
1 cup flour
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1 cup blueberries (don’t thaw if using frozen)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray nine muffin tins with cooking spray.
Beat butter, sugar and zest until fluffy, add eggs one at time. Then reduce to low and add cream and flour. Fold in coconut and blueberries. Bake 20-30 minutes until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. May refrigerate dough overnight. These are good served warm or cold.
