While I visited my sister in Florida, she baked a batch of these incredible muffins. They have a cake-like texture with sweet coconut and a mouthwatering lemon zing. I went home with the recipe.—Nancy Rader, Columbus, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) lemon or vanilla yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut, toasted

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, beat the yogurt, egg, butter, lemon peel and lemon juice until smooth; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the coconut.
  2. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
  3. In a saucepan, combine the lemon juice and sugar; cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Stir in coconut. Using a toothpick, poke 6-8 holes in each muffin. Spoon the coconut mixture over muffins. Serve warm or cool to room temperature. Yield: 1 dozen.

"Omg I love these! So easy and so delicious. I hate coconut so I just omit it and use a simple syrup glaze with fresh lemon juice for a topping,. They are wonderful and I highly recommend"

"Delicious! Easy but still seem special. I used a 6 oz. cup of coconut yogurt and a little milk so both together were 8 oz."
