coconut frosted muffins - recipe

I made some muffins inspired by one of my favourite cakes when I was a kid - Drommekage (it is Danish). Here is the recipe:

250g plain flour
50g butter
300g sugar
4 eggs
2dl milk
3 tbl spoon baking powder
2 tbs vanilla sugar

125g butter
100g dessicated coconut
200 brown sugar
½dl syrup
½dl milk

Set the oven to 225*C.
Melt butter and milk in the microwave on low heat whilst mixing sugar an egg fluffy. Add flour, baking powder and vanilla sugar with a strainer. Stir in the milk.

Fill the cupcake liners half full as they will rise a lot. Into the oven for 13 min (depends on your oven). (They are going back in for another 5min in the end so they should have a quite bright colour).

Whilst they are in, melt the butter for the topping in a pot, add the brown sugar and heat it until it start bubbling. Let it bubble for about 4-5min but keep stiring. Then add the dessicated coconut and the milk.

Put the topping onto the cupcakes and put all of it back into the oven for another 5min.


Can be put in the freezer and are chewy caramelly.
