Fruit Explosion Muffins

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
¼ cup coconut mixed with 2 Tbsp orange rind
2 eggs
1/4 cup melted butter
1 (very full) cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups fruit (frozen blueberries, cranberries, blackberries, raspberries)
sugar for sprinkling

Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Beat eggs, butter, buttermilk and vanilla together in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients and stir until just moistened. Stir fruit in carefully, so that the dough does not turn purple.
Fill 12 regular sized, well-greased or lined muffin tins. Sprinkle lightly with sugar.
Bake at 375F for 25 min. Test with toothpick. Frozen fruit may extend the baking time.

P.S. If you don't have buttermilk on hand, you can use 1/2 cup plain yoghurt and 1/2 cup milk.
