Mango & Coconut Muffins

IMAG2710

Making time for everything in a hectic week is not easy.  Just take this blog and my appalling lack of updates recently.  Falling behind and running out of time really stresses me out so I know I need to start making a big effort to become more organised and pro-active.  I have been busy the last few weekends, which is when I do most of my baking, but if I had prioritised post writing over grand prix watching I wouldn’t have left a full week between recipes.

To try and help myself out a bit I’ve been organising wherever possible.  I bought a big weekly calendar which I have pinned on my wall (right where I get ready every morning so there is no escaping it!) where I schedule my posts for the week ahead.  I can also tick these off when they’ve been posted – always fun!  My baking equipment had spread to all corners of my bedroom, the curse of sharing with a non-baker and having a small kitchen, so a small set of drawers were purchased to store my photo props, cake tins, cutters and cake decorating bits and bobs.  I also bought an adorable little Moleskin note book that fits in to my handbag where I can jot down any ideas or make plans when inspiration strikes.

So these muffins mark the start of a new organised Kirsty…or something like that!  They are good muffins though, using mango to provide delicate sweetness and coconut to give them a tropical flavour.  When baked mango becomes soft, sweet and luscious adding great moisture to cakes.  Coconut flakes add contrasting texture as a finishing touch.
