Today I’m sharing a super simple recipe for cherry coconut muffins that I often bake with my kids. The ingredients are simple, the batter is stirred together in a flash and the muffins are always a hit at a picnic.

Bake super simple cherry coconut muffins – easy recipe

Shortly before we moved, I decided to empty the baking drawer again and so I baked a few more times with coconut. My absolute favorite recipe for muffins has actually been my cream cheese muffins for years. I shared the recipe here back in 2012 and I rarely deviate from it. But I made an exception for these juicy coconut muffins. We also had a glass of cherries and so these simple cherry coconut muffins for a picnic were created. Here is the recipe for you without much ado.

This is what you need – cherry coconut muffins

The amount is enough for approx. 12 pieces

  • 125 grams of sugar
  • 125 Gramm Butter
  • 2 Owner
  • 150 grams of flour
  • 100 grams coconut flakes
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 100 milliliters buttermilk
  • A small glass of cherries or fresh cherries

How it’s done – Bake super simple coconut cherry muffins

The instructions for these muffins are really super simple. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (top and bottom heat) and place paper cups in the muffin tray. If you use cherries from a jar, drain them well. Alternatively, you can simply pit your fresh cherries.

Then mix the butter with the sugar until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well. Mix the flour, grated coconut and baking powder and stir the mixture into the batter as well. Finally, fold in the cherries and then put everything in the molds. Off in the oven and then bake for about 20 minutes until the muffins are lightly browned.

Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy.

Enjoy the meal,
