I've been trying to invent my own recipes. Normally I just follow cookbook recipes. I came up with this while trying to use up leftover things in my fridge, and I'm really proud of myself for inventing something that is not only edible but tasty! I practically ate them all in one sitting. They are a little bit sweet, I should warn you, but oh so delicious.
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 tsp rum extract
1 cup chopped strawberries
Preheat over to 400°F. Fill a muffin tin with cupcake liners and set aside.
Mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine the egg, coconut oil, pineapple juice, and rum extract. Make a well in the center of the large bowl and pour the liquid ingredients into the wet. Stir until just combined. Add the chopped strawberries, folding them into the batter.
Fill the cupcake liners about 3/4 full with the muffin batter. By now the oven should be ready. Put the tin in the oven for about 17-25 minutes. The muffins are ready with they are lightly browned on the top and a knife comes out clean when inserted into the center.
Allow to cool. Serve.
Oh yeah, I first posted this on my blog. I just want to mention that in case someone sees it there and wonders if I stole it or something!
