Raspberry & Coconut muffins

We set off early today for Paris .... a spot of Xmas shopping and dinner at Pierre Gagnaire! Very excited. Made a steaming thermos of coffee for the road and a batch of these delicious raspberry and coconut muffins.
It's a mere hour's drive from Bosgouet to the centre of Paris and we are staying with great friends from Australia in Montmartre. I have not been to Montmartre since our honeymoon in 1990 and am very keen to see the changes that have taken place.

I had to giggle when I read "The French Table will deliver to you each and every day a little taste of French Country life from this my first blog." Such optimism and as if you don't have enough to do! but a great idea Jane - tell people about it, I am sure many will want to have a read if they know where to find you xxxm
