Deluxe Coconut Cupcakes

 deluxe coconut cupcakes
I was trying to think of desserts for Easter and I kept seeing all these cute recipes with coconut as little birds nests. So I decided that I was going to make a Coconut cupcake and sprinkle Cadbury eggs on top and this would be my bird’s nest. By the time I was finished I couldn’t put a egg on top of one of these cupcakes, they looked to delicious! Oh, by the way, they are super delicious!
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut, toasted
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 yellow cake mix
1 1/4 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
2 sticks of butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons of lemon juice
3 cups powdered sugar
1 cup toasted coconut
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the cupcake pans with liners.
  • In a bowl, stir together 1 cup toasted coconut and sweetened condensed milk. Set aside.
  • Combine cake mix, coconut milk, oil and eggs. Divide the batter evenly in the cupcake pans ( about 2/3 full). Scoop 1 Tablespoon of the sweetened condensed milk mixture on the top of each cupcake.
  • Bake for 18 minutes or until the cupcake springs back when touched. Cool completely before you frost.
  • Frosting: Combine butter, vanilla and lemon juice, until smooth.
  • Add powdered sugar and mix until light and fluffy.
  • Sprinkle toasted coconut on top!!
To toast coconut; place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees. Stir it a couple of times and be patient, it will get brown!
