Carrot Coconut Muffins (Provence Sun N°8)
Do you have picky eaters who aren’t so keen on eating their vegetables? Let them sink their teeth into one of these delicious carrot-ﬁlled mufﬁns and watch them smile! The added coconut makes these mufﬁns unbelievably moist and very hard to resist. They’re not only the perfect snack, but they also happen to make a wonderful breakfast.
Ingredients to makes 12 mufﬁns
150 ml milk
230 g ﬂour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
250 g grated carrots
½ tsp salt
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
110 g dark brown sugar
70 g dessicated coconut
70 ml sunﬂower oil
Preheat the oven to 200°C and prepare your mufﬁn pan, either with paper liners or by greasing it with a little butter followed by a dusting of ﬂour.
Pour the milk into a measuring jug and add the vinegar.
Leave to stand while you get on with the rest of the recipe.
Mix the ﬂour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a bowl.
Add the carrots and the dessicated coconut and stir well.
Add the egg, sugar and oil to the milk and vinegar and whisk well.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and gently fold in to combine.
Divide the batter over the prepared mufﬁn tin and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Allow the mufﬁns to cool in the tin (on a wire rack) for ﬁve minutes.
Remove from the tin and allow to cool completely on the rack.

The sun is out, bank holidays are in, we all want to go and explore, although this can sometimes be ruined by the dreaded mistral (p14). But let’s not spoil things. How about a visit to St Jean du Fos (p20) or if you’re feeling more urban, a nice shopping day in Avignon with a healthy tea break (p23) or a visit to an art gallery in Nîmes? (p17) If you’re feeling extra energetic like me, how about entering the Pont du Gard race on 30 June to raise money for a fantastic local charity? Also in this issue, the remarkable story of a simulated space mission by Claire (p18) and a very funny article by Bernice on her pathological inability (or so she says) to learn languages (p22).
