  • Coconut Cupcakes 5/6
    • These cupcakes are pretty good. Fluffy, light, white, moist and a nice almond flavour. I would have appreciated an even stronger coconut flavour though. This recipe is worth a try and it's easy to follow. I baked them with my friend and we over baked ours a bit. Do not over bake them. If you over bake them it'll taste dry especially since there's dried coconut flakes in the batter...the texture will just be extra dry and you really want these to be fluffy. They will look really white and you might think they aren't baked all the way through yet...but if the tooth pick comes out clean take them out. They're done! Our second batch was much better!
    • Cream cheese frosting - great match! Actually a great recipe to keep.

  1. If you want a better coconut flavour you could replace part of the butter with Coconut oil. I do that with a scratch chocolate cake I make and it helps with moistness and adds a wonderful flavour.
