Banana Coconut and Bourbon Muffins

    45 minutes

    Basically a banana muffins recipe with just a few extras added. I use bourbon, I imagine you could use rum and I have also used chopped walnuts instead of the chocolate chips.

    25 people made this

    Serves: 12 

    • 1 3/4 cups plan flour
    • 1 teaspoon bi-carbonate of soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 4 small ripe bananas
    • 80g unsalted butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup white sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/4 cup of bourbon
    • 1/2 cup shredded or flaked coconut
    • 1 cup of choc bits

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with muffin liners. Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl; set aside.
    2. Beat the bananas, butter, and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the egg, vanilla and bourbon. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the coconut and chocolate bits, mixing just enough to evenly combine. Put the mix into the muffin cups - about 3/4 full in each one.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool in the tins for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

    Delicious!  -  03 Dec 2010


    Oh my heck, after I giggled about twenty minutes over the title of this recipe, I got to work. I followed this recipe as close as I could, adding a teaspoon of baking powder and I used whole wheat white flour. I thought these were good, though next time I'd add some chopped pecans or walnuts and maybe some cinnamon or nutmeg next time. I didn't like the chocolate chips, though my kids and husband did. I'd like to try Hershey's cinnamon chips in this recipe next time. Quite tasty and they smell amazing while baking! Thanks for the laughs......and a new banana muffin recipe!  -  30 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
