Heavenly tropical muffin bites

Introduction

This is a vegan recipe depending on the cake mix you choose. This is a vegan recipe depending on the cake mix you choose.
Number of Servings: 84

Ingredients

    Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Pineapple Supreme Cake Mix (this has no eggs or dairy in the mix)

    1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple (in natural juice)

    1 can (13.5 oz) coconut milk (choose the can with the LEAST ingredients on the label)

    1 bag (14 oz) sweetened flaked coconut

Directions

Makes 84 to 96 mini muffins. I always over fill the muffin ups and end up with 84 (which is what the nutritional info is based on). 96 would be better, especially as they'd end up a bit crispy and therefore sweeter. Remeber to use MINI muffins - anything larger will NEVER finish cooking.

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix cake mix and coconut milk with mixer. Add in crushed pineapple and mix again. Add 1/2 the bag of coconut and mix. Add the last 1/2 bag of coconut and mix again. Give the mixing wands to your kids to lick clean.

Be sure to use MINI muffins. The recipe is too dense to cook as a larger portion (well you could reduce the temp and cook longer but . . .).

I prefer the silicone mini muffin pans and I spray them with a vegan baking spray. These are sticky little suckers and the silicone plus the spray helps them come out of the pan. Bake them for 20 minutes, let them cool. These are VERY moist so they'll only last a few days. That has never been a problem.

I recommend only baking these when you can take them OUT of the house, like take them to work, tai chi, homeroom, somewhere. If you keep them all at home, you'll go back and snack. I have not yet experimented with freezing and reheating but I keep planning to.

  • WOW!!!
    These are really great! Simple, easy, and truly delicious! I made them over Thanksgiving and they were a hit - everyone requested the recipe.
    Depending on your oven - you may let them cook 1-3 minutes longer but watch them to make sure you don't burn the edges! - 11/29/10
