Coconut Muffins (Kekakia me Karyda)

Hi there,  I woke up this morning thinking to myself what would I like to cook or bake today.  The last two recipes I posted were both Greek so I wanted something different.  I have this lovely Coconut Muffin recipe which I just adore.  It’s different, tasty and easy to make…:)

The Coconut is considered a seed and not a fruit, actually it’s considered a dry Drupe.   Personally, I thought for many years that it was a fruit. 🙁  A few years ago while searching the internet I found out this bit of information. The best part about eating Coconuts is that they are rich in vitamins and minerals.   Hmmm interesting  🙂 

I hope you enjoy this recipe 🙂


2 cups All Purpose Flour

1/2 cup Sugar

1 teaspoon Salt

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 cup Vegetable Oil

1 cup Milk

1 Egg

1 cup Coconut Flakes

12 cupcake cups




In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, and baking powder and set aside.


In a smaller bowl beat vegetable oil, milk and egg.


Add the milk and egg mix, into the flour mix and combine.


Place cups into the cupcake pan and fill 3/4 of the cup with the dough.  Bake at 180 degrees for 1/2 hr. or depending on the oven.

    I have to not read your posts sometimes because they make me ridiculously hungry. I’m not even kidding, but I so wish I was! It’s 12:30am, my whole family is asleep, and I’m sitting here thinking, “I wonder if I have any coconut flakes….” You’re killing me Soph! 😉

    Loveeee Pineapplesssss

    Me too! I know a cool trick to cutting pineapples into a really good dish

    foodzesty 1 year ago

    Would love to know it…I have seen one myself witha gadget

    Nice, me too it works well. The thing i was going to suggest is that you cut the pineapple in half and then you cut it in little pieces and push them to the in a zig-zag
