After learning about the magic of brining and using it on thicker, drier cuts of pork with great success, I thought I’d give it a whirl with rump roast since it was on sale this week and I really am a fan of beef.
Cornstarch added to cake recipes is known aid in producing a moist, tender bite, and that’s what I wanted in my muffins so I decided to start by including 3.4 oz. box of cook and serve coconut pudding in my recipe, both for texture and for flavor. The 2 cups of sweetened coconut adds good coconut flavor and a bit of coconut texture which is a perfect contrast to the moist bite of the muffins. 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 teaspoon of coconut flavoring also aid in creating a strong coconut flavor.
