Coconut Blueberry Muffin Tops

This is the first year that I won’t get to spend Mother’s Day with my mom. I’m pretty bummed. Flights were just too expensive ($800 to fly east?! really?) and I’m flying to Michigan later this month for a family wedding anyway. Ann Arbor friends! I’m coming your way….it will be my first trip ever to the great state of Michigan! I’m going to take my “mature dress” for a test run—thank you all so much for the great ideas on what to wear with it. Right now, I’m thinking hot pink pumps…

So even though I don’t get to spend Mother’s Day with my mom (I get to spend it teaching yoga to cyclists), I wanted to share a fun brunch idea with you guys that will be perfect if you’re lucky enough to spend Sunday with your mom.

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t pick the top off their muffin and eat that part first? (Hand raising high)

What I really like to do, though, is “split” a muffin with Adam. I break off the entire top, stuff it in my mouth and give him the bottom. Totally fair, right? I think so.

Well, muffin top lovers rejoice! Now you can bake an entire batch of just the crunchy, sweet, fluffy tops! Whatever the question is, I think these muffin tops are the answer.

Serve with iced tea (or mimosas!), skillet baked eggs and some bacon for breakfast or brunch! Then, invite me over because that’s a meal I really want to be a part of.

If blueberry and coconut isn’t your thing, try your own variation! Raspberries would be nice…or blackberries…even chopped strawberries! Or you could just skip all that fruit nonsense and load these suckers down with chocolate chips.

Enjoy!

Coconut Blueberry Muffin Tops

adapted from blackberry orange muffins

makes about 14 muffin tops

Print this recipe!

Ingredients:

2 cups flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp orange zest

12 oz blueberries

1 stick butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut

2 eggs

for topping—

2/3 cup sweetened flaked coconut

1/4 tsp slivered almonds

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 375.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, orange zest, baking powder, coconut and salt together. Gently add the blueberries and stir so that the berries are covered with flour. Set aside.

Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the eggs, one by one, until thoroughly combined. Add the milk and blend.

Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and toss gently, being careful not to crush the berries. Scoop 1/4 cup amount of batter onto a lined baking sheet, about 3 inches apart.

Combine the sweetened flaked coconut and slivered almonds to make the topping. Set aside (do not immediately top muffin tops).

Bake muffin tops for 10 minutes then carefully sprinkle about a tablespoon or so of topping on each. Bake for another 10-12 minutes until golden.

Let cool for five minutes on the sheet pan then use a spatula to remove.

Time:

40 minutes

        ZINGERMAN’S!!! My fiance hand carried their pecan pie on the plane ride back! Best $40 for a pie ever spent. That my friend is LUV. <3

        p.s. Their sandwiches are bomb…that bread. Oh so delicious. Any of the corned beef sandwiches (#2, #13, #67) are sooo good. Gotta love Sy Ginsberg corned beef!

        I wish I lived in MI long enough to do one of their bread baking series.

      Oh question about the method: What did you bake them in? I saw a sheet pan written at the end but what is that? Also do they come out soft or hard – they kind of look like scones.

        May 9, 2012 at 7:56 am

        A sheet pan is what you would bake cookies on. You just drop the batter and bake them like they are cookies or scones! And they come out soft like muffins with a crunchy top.

    Hey Jenna,

    (south-east) Michigan native until last year (and now I’m in Europe!) – I have to double, triple, quadruple the above recommendations:

    #1 Zingermann’s!!! check out their menu online and drool! try lunch (the sandwiches! AND gelato AND iced tea AND…) at the deli and you *MUST* do brunch at the Roadhouse (great drinks there too)

    #2 Dominick’s for sure – last time I was there, they closed early (11pm/12a) due to their neighborhood location. Sangria aside, their pizza is awesome!

    Other gems… Blue Tractor (try the blue cheese mac n cheese with buffalo chicken on top. you’re welcome.), Cafe Havana (next door to Blue Trac), and Big Ten Burrito – yum!

    Soooo jealous you’re visiting my mitten but I’ll soothe my emotions in Prague this weekend 😉 Have a great trip!

    I understand on not seeing mom. This is our 4th consecutive year being stationed overseas. I’ve seen my Mom 3 times in the last 4 years and plane tix are $1500 each, too much for a fam of 4 to just jet back.

    Whoa, I checked your link to the “mature dress,” and realized that somehow I had missed your post about heading to ALA.

    Um, as a librarian, I have to say… DO NOT WORRY. There’s no nice way to say this. The ALA conventions are the biggest freak conventions you can imagine. You may have been in cities when other professional conventions (ABA, APA) were going on… this is not like that. It would not be surprising if you mistook many of the librarian attendees for bag ladies. Seriously. I’m not talking about the usual librarian stereotypes… I am talking about the stereotypes which which (mainly) only librarians are familiar, and which are based in large part on the truth.

    They will love you, and you really don’t have to dress like a stereotypical librarian in order to be accepted. 🙂

    AND, if you do get some free time, I am echoing some of the previous recommendations:
    Running in the Arb (a must); Zingerman’s (be prepared to wait…but worth it); Kerrytown Farmer’s Market; Comet Coffee; Frita Batidos (restaurant of a former Top Chef contestant); Dominick’s; and BEER (this town has an amazing variety of beer – Arbor Brewing Co is my personal fave and Jolly Pumpkin has a great atmosphere).

      I got that little glass jug from a local shop, but I’m sure you find something like it on Etsy if you search “retro glass milk jug”!

    have FUN in MI!! I’m originally from Battle Creek (only 1.5 hrs from Ann Arbor). It’s a beautiful city and state. I hope your weather is great! Explore the UofM campus and I second the Zingerman’s Deli recommendation! 🙂

    Lots of good suggestions already, but I’ll add:
    Selma Cafe – Friday morning breakfast only, but you might like their mission so check out their website
    The Northside Grill – awesome breakfasts
    I’ll second the Cafe Zola and canoeing recommendations
    The Nichols Arboretum – the peonies should be in bloom
    Wherever you go, have fun and take pics! We love to see our town through the eyes of others!
    p.s. catch the Ann Arbor commercial on the michigan.org website.

    I live in Ann Arbor and have lots of restaurants reviews. 🙂 Those muffin tops look awesome – toasted coconut is the bomb.

    I am a muffin top lover!!! When I eat muffins, I don’t even bother with the bottom. I’ll just eat the top, and then get another muffin and eat that top!

    Since you have such a big Ann Arbor fan club, any chance you would have time for an A2 meet-up for coffee or adult beverages? Could be fun!!

      Maybe!! I’ll be with my family so I’ll have to see if we have enough time to coordinate something like a coffee/tea meet-up. I’ll let you guys know…if we did, it would be friday, may 25!

        SELMA would be a great place to do that–the earlier the better since they’ve been hosting LOTS of people lately–that way you’d have the rest of the day to do other things too! I’m sure if you contact Lisa Gottlieb, she just may be willing to help coordinate. Check it out http://www.repastspresentandfuture.org/site/fmselma/

    Jenna, do you think this same recipe would work if I wanted to bake these in muffin form? As in the whole muffin, not just the top. I may be in the minority but I love the bottom part of the muffin! Thank you :).

    I love muffin tops recipes! It’s the best part of the muffin anyway so why waste batter on the other half of the muffin, right? 🙂

    I’d love to know what poses you focused on for cyclists. I’m a RYT and my bf is a cyclist…I’ve been meaning to teach him some good poses, but just haven’t gotten around to it! Do you think you’ll share some yoga stuff on the blog when your certified?

    Jenna,
    In your recipe you listed 1/4 tsp. of slivered almonds for the topping. Did you mean 1/4 cup? 1/4 tsp seems like too little. My daughter and I added more. We also thought about chopping the slivered almonds a little.
