How to Make Captain Jack's Coconut Muffins

Step-by-Step

  • 1While preheating oven to 425 degrees, spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • 2In a large bowl, gently mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until all dry ingredients are combined.
  • 3In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and sugars. Mix in milk, oil, rum and extracts.
  • 4Fold 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.)
  • 5Pour 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 :)
