I have a collection of muffin recipes and this is my favourite one so far. Adopted from the cookbook " coming home" by Cathy Armstrong, these muffins are moist and delicious. Image holding them in your hands on a cold winter day, it's just so satisfying. Enjoy!

2 1/2 cup self raising flour
3/4 cup castor sugar
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
100g butter, melted
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup plain yoghurt
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
For the berries muffins:
1/2 punnet of strawberry
1/2 punnet of blueberry
icing sugar for dusting
For the apple and muesli muffins:
1 to 2 green apples, peel, cored and cut into pieces
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
toasted muesli for sprinkle
- Mix the dry ingredients together. Then add in butter, milk, yoghurt and vanilla. Stir a little and add the berries till just come together.
- Divide the batter into two lots. One with berries and one with apple and cinnamon. Spoon batter into muffin cases. Sprinkle muesli over the apple muffins and bake for 30-35 minutes at 190c.
- When the muffins are cooled, dust with icing sugar for the berries one.
