“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.”

Directions

  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 applesauce and the butter - because I didn't have any applesauce and prefer coconut oil to all other oils when baking or cooking. A nice frosting that I tried out recently that is great on the cupcakes - is 1 cup coconut oil, 3 cups powdered sugar, 5 teaspoons coconut milk. Whip it up (I just used a fork and didn't bust out the electric mixer, but sure that works too) and spread on the cupcakes - will intensify the tasty coconut flavor even more.
