Citrus Coconut Muffins

Citrus Coconut Muffins taste super delicious with the citrusy taste of the zest complimenting the slight sweetness of the coconut!

Cuisine American, british


  • 2 and 1/2 cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup castor sugar
  • 90 grams butter
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest finely grated
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest finely grated
  • 1 egg large
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut fresh
  • 1/4 cup orange juice freshly squeezed


  • Preheat the oven to 180C
  • Combine the lemon zest, orange zest, egg, orange juice and milk - basically all the liquid ingredients in one bowl.
  • Take another bowl and add the flour and the sugar. Add the butter into this mixture by rubbing it slightly. Add half the coconut and mix.
  • Now add the liquid ingredients which are mixed together into this bowl. Gently mix until just everything comes together. Don't over mix it.
  • Now add in this mixture in the muffin tray and sprinkle some shredded coconut on the top. (We missed doing this since the child added all of it in the batter but it still worked)
  • Bake for about 20 minutes in a preheated oven or until the skewer comes out clean.
