  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup mashed banana about 2 medium or 1 1/2 large bananas
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut rum
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ginger powder
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup King Arthur Premium 100% Whole Wheat Flour or King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour
  • 3/4 cup dried cherries
  • 3/4 cup Unsweetened Flaked Coconut plus more to sprinkle


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease or line with muffins wrappers 12 to 14 standard muffin cups.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar till smooth.
  • Add the egg, the mashed banana, vanilla extract, coconut rum, and milk and mix well
  • Add the baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger powder, nutmeg, and flours, stirring till smooth; if the mixture has lumps, beat at a higher speed until they've nearly disappeared.
  • Stir in the dried cherries, and flaked coconut.
  • Cover bowl and let the batter rest for about 5 - 7 minutes at room temperature to allow the cherries to expand and soften.
  • Spoon the thick batter into the prepared muffin cups, mounding them quite full but do not overfill; Sprinkle the tops of the muffins batter with shredded coconut.
  • Bake the muffins for 20 to 23 minutes, until a cake tester inserted into the center of one of the middle muffins in the pan comes out clean.
  • Remove the muffins from the oven, and tilt them in the pan to cool a bit; this will prevent their bottoms from becoming soggy.
  • When safe to handle, carefully remove them and transfer to a rack to cool completely.


You can substitute cherries with cranberries.
