Coconut Cupcakes

"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.

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.

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 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!
