Ingredients

  • 425g can pineapple in juice
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 85g golden caster sugar
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • 2 eggs
  • 85g butter , melted
  • 150g pot natural bio-yogurt
  • 175g grated carrot

To decorate

  • 50g creamed coconut
  • juice from pineapple can
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • orange writing icing
  • crystallised angelica

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and line a muffin tray with 12 paper cases. Drain the pineapple, reserving the juice, then crush the flesh with a fork. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Beat the eggs, melted butter and yogurt together and pour into the bowl, along with the carrot and pineapple. Stir quickly, then spoon into muffin cases and bake for 18 mins or until risen and golden. Can be frozen at this stage for up to a month.

  • STEP 2

    To decorate, mix the creamed coconut with 5 tbsp pineapple juice and stir in the icing sugar. Put the desiccated coconut onto a plate or tray. Peel the muffins from their cases and put on a rack. Spread the icing over until completely covered (this can get a bit messy), then roll in the coconut. Leave to dry for a few mins. Pipe a carrot on the top of each muffin using the writing icing, with strips of angelica as stalks.
