Recipe: Coconut-Vanilla-Muffins with a red currant core


Hello and a wonderful Wednesday!

This is the first post of a feature I start, called Kat’s Kitchen. Every Wednesday there will come a new post on baking, wether it’s new recipes or kitchen essentials or favourite food and drinks. Since I’m neither vegan nor vegetarian, most of the things here won’t be either, though I will sometimes also try recipes for these categories. I will write the recipes in English, as well as in German. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do ­čÖé
