                Recipe adapted from ~ <Easy Muffins and Cupcakes> by Kelvin Chai                  
[Makes about 12-13 standard size muffins]
Ingredients :
230g unsalted butter
230g caster sugar
230g plain flour
                              4 eggs                                
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
20g coconut powder
30g dessicated coconut
60g almonds, chopped
(I use sliced ones instead)
Method :
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Place paper baking cases in muffin tins.
2. Combine butter, sugar, eggs, flour, salt, baking powder and coconut powder in a mixer. Beat until smooth and pale, about 2 to 3 minutes.
3. Stir in dessicated coconut and almond. Spoon batter into the cases. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked.
4. Remove tins from oven and cool for 5 minutes. Then remove the muffins and cool on a rack. 
Note : The original recipe was meant to be a cupcake, but I have decided to do without the icing frosting in the end.
