Very easy to bake! I used some coconut milk along with regular milk in the recipe. Smells great!

Okay, I'm a serial recipe tweaker. After reading a review that these were dry, I used heavy cream and I used a whole cup. The fat from the cream will help keep them moist. I also like my muffins sweeter, so I used a whole cup of sugar. I also used a double strength vanilla extract and a little coconut extract in addition to the almond. I totally support the use of coconut milk, if you have it on hand. I decided to skip the glaze because I want to please my calorie counting colleagues, but I'm sure it would be delicious! Another trick: reduce your oven temp by 25 degrees if you are using a dark or non-stick muffin pan (which most are) and increase baking time until they spring back to the touch. Enjoy and thank you for posting this recipe! It was exactly what I was looking for.

Delicious! Moist & full of flavour! I thought they were more cake-like so next time I'll top with actual frosting as I wasn't too fussy on the glaze anyway.

These were very good. We sub'd canned coconut milk for the milk. They had a pound cake texture and were really yummy. We'll make again.

These were really nice. I was hoping for a lot more coconut flavor though. I even used coconut extract. They had nice flavor and were nice and moist nontheless. I would make these again!

These were amazing! I substituted the coconut extract for almond, but other than they, everything stayed the same and turned out perfect. My glaze seems a bit thin, I'll experiment with adding more powdered sugan next time...

Love this recipe; it's a nice change from the usual chocolate or blueberry muffins!

These are wonderful! I used coconut extract as I didn't have almond. They are light and flavorful. Definately a keeper. Oh I didn't follow the directions exactly, I just followed the regular muffin procedure.

These were sooooo dry. I followed the directions to a T. Pretty sure I don't agree with the description "woderfully moist". Sorry, won't make again. We threw them out.

Made this for my mom who loves sweets. I thought for sure it was gonna be a keeper, but she didn't love it. I liked it, but didn't love it :(
