How to Make Cottage Cheese-Coconut Muffins with Gooseberries
- Preparation of Ingredients. Measure out all the necessary ingredients. Wash and dry the gooseberries.
- Preparing the Batter. In a deep bowl, combine the cottage cheese, eggs, sugar, and vanilla sugar. Mix well until you get a smooth consistency.
- Adding Dry Ingredients. Gradually add the flour mixed with baking powder and the desiccated coconut. Mix until the batter is smooth.
- Incorporating the Gooseberries. Add the gooseberries to the batter and gently fold them in.
- Shaping the Muffins. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Line muffin tins with paper liners and fill them 2/3 full with the batter.
- Baking. Place the muffin tins in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until they have a golden crust. You can check for doneness by inserting a wooden skewer into a muffin; if it comes out clean, the muffins are ready.
- Cooling. Allow the muffins to cool in the tins for 10 minutes, then remove them and let them cool completely on a wire rack.
Tip: For an added burst of flavor, you can incorporate some lemon or orange zest into the batter.
