I bake muffins quite often. I try to choose seasonal fruits and combine different types of flour and I always create a new recipe. However, this time, I have also added coconut cream to the top and the cupcakes were made! Cupcakes are actually very easy to make. You just need to bake traditional muffins and top them with a frosting of your choice. Raspberries are in season right now, so I decided to bake these spectacular raspberry muffins.
I often add a mashed banana to the muffins batter, but in this recipe, I added a date paste, which I created by blending dates and water. This way, muffins are sweet even without the addition of sugar or another sweetener.
Coconut milk is great for frosting. it is creamy and so delicious. Just make sure you are using the thicker part of the coconut cream from a can. The next step is to whisk it with a hand mixer. Since I made raspberry cupcakes, I also added homemade raspberry jam and a little bit of stevia.
