I really like this muffin recipe, you can add anything you really like to the basic mixture and change it about as much as you want.

I had some bananas in the freezer (they were on special) and some blueberries, what a great combination. I mixed it up with a bit of coconut cream and they were just delicious and so moist.


  • 3 cups self raising flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup berries
  • 1 can coconut cream (400 ml)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups cold water

Mix dry ingredients and then add banana and berries and wet ingredients. Mix until combine.  (You may need to add more water).

Bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees celcius) for approx 20 mins. Check with a skewer to see if cooked.

These muffins are lovely and moist and a great snack idea.

When we were getting ready to butcher our pigs a week or so ago I wanted to have a cake prepared for snacks and maybe dessert, and this is what I came up with.



  • 4 cups self raising flour
  • 2 cups coconut
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 can coconut cream
  • 10 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups cold water

Mix dry ingredients, add coconut cream, olive oil and water. Mix until all combined.

Spread in a lined tin and bake for 30 minutes in a moderate oven.

Check to see if it is cooked and then when cold ice with chocolate icing with coconut sprinkled on top.

This cake was delicious and moist, a little crumbly but great with cream.


PS. This is a big recipe so you could definitely halve it if you wanted a smaller cake.
