These came about as I wanted to make my monthly batch of muffins but didn’t have enough butter for the final batch. Coconut oil to the rescue! You can of course use butter or a different type of oil if you don’t like the taste of coconut oil. Also, whilst talking about it, because it has oil in the batter, the wrapper may be a little bit more oilier than normal (if using one). Just worth mentioning. I prefer to use silicone forms and they work a treat.
I make a big batch and pop them into the freezer for school lunchboxes or afternoon tea. These thaw well. Serve warm with a little vanilla ice cream for a yummy dessert.
This makes 24 small child size muffins. You can make larger ones if desired.
