Our Tasty Coconut Cupcakes are light and fluffy and have the most amazing coconut frosting with a sprinkling of coconut flakes.
Coconut Cupcakes are definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. I LOVE all things coconut, and these Tasty Coconut Cupcakes do not disappoint! They are super moist and fluffy, and the frosting is AMAZING! If you’ve been a fan of this site for a loooooooong time, you may recognize these as one of our first posts! We decided to give it a little TLC and repost it!
You won’t regret making these – trust me! Make sure that when is says, “softened” or “room temperature” that you stick to that! The batter will come out SO much smoother if everything is at room temperature. Also, make sure not to over-mix the batter. Mix it well enough to combine the ingredients, but then stop. Scrape the sides of the mixing bowl very frequently to make sure there aren’t any surprises when you start scooping the batter into the liners. It is VERY important that you don’t overfill the liners. I used my melon-baller to scoop the batter in, and that was just the right amount. I used a thick, round tip on my piping bag to frost these.
The good news is that the coconut you sprinkle over the top hides a LOT, so the frosting doesn’t have to look perfect.
