      1/2  cup           margarine -- solid
      1/2  cup           sugar
      1/2  cup           packed light brown sugar
    2                    eggs
    1 3/4  cups          all-purpose flour
    1      tablespoon    baking powder
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/2  cup           brewed coffee -- strong
      1/3  cup           milk
    2      teaspoons     vanilla extract
      1/2  cup           black walnuts -- chopped
      3/4  cup           dried coconut
      1/4  teaspoon      almond extract -- optional
 
      1. Grease and flour 12 muffin cups, or use paper liners.
      2. Use a large electric mixer bowl. Cream the margarine, sugar and brown
 sugar until very light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
      3. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt.
      4. Combine the coffee, milk, vanilla and almond extract.
      5. Alternately blend the coffee mixture and the flour mixture into the
 margarine mixture. Stir in the nuts and coconut. Divide the batter among the
 12 muffin cups. Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 25-35 minutes or until
 a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
      6. Cool 5 minutes on rack and remove from muffin tins and cool longer
 before enjoying with your coffee or tea.
