Danish dream cake muffins

Recipe for 6-8 persons
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins
Total 45 mins


Batter (makes about 18)
Coconut filling



Heat the oven to 180 C convection.

Melt the butter in a pan, add the cream, and set aside. Beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix the flour, vanilla sugar, and baking powder together in a bowl and whisk it into the batter alternately with the butter/cream mixture. Divide the batter between 18 muffin tins and bake them for 15 minutes. Take the muffins out of the oven and make a hollow in the center of each of them with a knife.

Coconut filling

While the muffins are in the oven, make the coconut filling by melting the butter in a pan. Add the desiccated coconut, brown sugar, and whole milk and mix well until even. Let it bubble a little over a medium heat while you continue to stir.

Spread the coconut filling on the muffins. Fill the hollows with the coconut filling and put some on top. Bake for a further 12-14 minutes, until the filling is crispy. Remove the muffins and let them cool before indulging. Enjoy!
