im just going to put it out there - these are the yummiest muffins in the WORLD. well they are equal with some raspberry muffins that i made once and then lost the recipe so i have never been able to replicate them... GRR!
the feeble picture that i managed to take as i was racing out the door does not do them justice! but i thought i would share the love anyway :)

2 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1 cup dessicated coconut
1 cup caster sugar
1 tbsp finely grated lime rind
1 cup buttermilk
125g butter, melted
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup water
2 tsp finely grated lime rind
1/3 cup lime juice
preheat oven to mod hot (180). grease 12 hole muffin pan.
combine flour, coconut and sugar in a large bowl; stir in combined remaining ingredients.

transfer muffins to wire rack over tray; pour hot lime syrup over hot muffins.
drain syrup and pour over muffins again.
