Ingredients

  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • cup white sugar

  • 1 cup flaked coconut

  • 2 eggs

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • ½ cup buttermilk

  • 3 carrots, grated

  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, with juice

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 2 muffin pans, or use paper liners.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, allspice and salt. Mix in brown sugar, white sugar and coconut. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, oil, 1/2 cup buttermilk, carrots, pineapple, and vanilla. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and add the egg/buttermilk mixture. Mix until batter is moistened. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.

  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the tops spring back when lightly tapped. Allow to cool.

  4. In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 to 3 tablespoons buttermilk. Mix until smooth, then refrigerate until thickened. Drizzle over cooled muffins.
