    1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Lightly grease 2 muffin tins, or use paper cases.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, allspice and salt. Mix in dark brown soft sugar, caster sugar and coconut. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, oil, 110ml buttermilk, carrots, pineapple and vanilla. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and add the egg/buttermilk mixture.
