How to Make Captain Jack's Coconut Muffins

Step-by-Step

  1. While preheating oven to 425 degrees, spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, gently mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until all dry ingredients are combined.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and sugars. Mix in milk, oil, rum and extracts.
  4. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients, adding coconut in last. Mix only to incorporate, being careful not to overmix (which will result in dry, tough muffins.)
  5. Pour batter into prepared muffin tins, filling to just under the top edge of the tin. Sprinkle with coarse sugar and/or coconut. Bake at 425 for 5 mins and then reduce to 375 and bake for an additional 25-30 mins (you may need to bake a bit longer for jumbo muffin tins) til golden brown. Allow to cool for 10 mins, then de-tin and continue to cool or eat and enjoy :)
