RECIPE from Charter Yacht THREE MOONS

We asked a few of our favorite charter yachts to share a couple of their favorite recipes whether it be an appetizer, main dish, or cocktail. Here's one from Shelly, owner-operator of the 72-foot charter yacht THREE MOONS.

Hi Bob & Sheila,

Here's a recipe that I tried out on our last guests... I really liked it and they did too!

These are very moist & tropical and a great way to add more fruit to your daily intake. It was one of those "Oh wow, these are better than I thought they would be moments!"

The best part is that there wasn't a single muffin left on the platter!

Papaya Pineapple Bran Muffins
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup bran flakes or raisin bran
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp allspice

1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup cubed fresh papaya
1/2 cup fresh chopped pineapple
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • Preheat oven to 350. Grease one loaf pan.
  • Sift together in large bowl all dry ingredients, except nuts.
  • In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients except fruit beating until light and fluffy.
  • Gradually beat in flour mixture; fold in fruit and nuts.
  • Pour batter into pan, baking approx 50 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool 10 mins before turning out onto a wire rack.
  • Enjoy!
