Signature Raspberry, White chocolate and Coconut Muffins


On Mondays, I make the muffins at work and usually I get requests for my Banana and Chocolate Muffins, but lately more and more people have been requesting my Raspberry, White chocolate and Coconut ones : )

These muffins have the perfect balance of flavour with sourness from the raspberries and sweetness from the chocolate.

But I like to add desiccated coconut from even more flavour and to make your usual raspberry and white chocolate combo just a little bit different.

The quantity of ingredients is large because I use it in the cafe where I usually make 12 texas sized muffins. You can either make 24 small muffins from this, or just half it and make 6 texas sized or 12 small muffins.

Also, I rarely measure my chocolate or raspberries out. I just do it by eye.

But remember – the more bits the better!



600g plain flour, sifted

20g baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup desiccated coconut

4 eggs

250g butter, melted

250g brown sugar

300ml – 350ml milk (depending on consistency – the added coconut can make it a bit dry)

150ml vegetable oil

2 teaspoon vanilla essence

White chocolate

Raspberries (fresh or frozen)


1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Melt butter. Set aside.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, coconut, white chocolate and raspberries in a large bowl.

3. In a smaller bowl, combine eggs, sugar, butter, milk, vegetable oil and vanilla essence.

4. Combine wet with dry – do not over mix!

5. Pour into muffin tins and bake 12-15 minutes until done.
