"A white cake recipe with a coconut twist. I had some coconut in my fridge that needed to be used, and this is what I came up with. If you want a more intense coconut flavor, add a teaspoon or two of coconut extract. Try putting your coconut in a food processor or blender if you prefer a smoother-textured cupcake. This is the first recipe I've come up with on my own, so any suggestions would be appreciated."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Mix sugar, applesauce, and butter together in a bowl.
  3. Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until medium peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the tip of the peak formed by the egg whites should curl over slightly.
  4. Stir egg yolks and vanilla extract into applesauce mixture; fold in egg whites. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt until just combined. Beat coconut milk into batter until smooth, about 1 minute. Beat in shredded coconut for about 30 seconds. Pour batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Thank you for the recipe Jessica. The cooking time can certainly be increased, but it is normal that different ovens have different baking temperatures. I used coconut oil in place of the appl...

Yum! Who doesn't love coconut...especially in cupcakes!

My nine-year-old daughter and I made these. We used a little less sugar because I think most recipes call for too much. We over-beat the eggs whites but the cupcakes still turned out fine. We al...

I made mine with 1 cup of apple sauce instead of 1 half cup and the turned out amazing then I tried it again with 1 half cup and I liked the 1 cup of apple sauce WAY better they were more moist...

Delicious! I ground the coconut. Perfect coconut flavour, nice and fluffy. Thanks!

The bake time is WAY OFF. I cooked the cake for 45 minutes and it was still not done in the middle. The flavor is good so I give it a 2 star rating.

I followed the recipe as written. I thought it was awesome.

they didnt rise.

These were delicious. They required about 4-5 more minutes than the recipe suggested so no issues there. I have no complaints, neither did the husband!
