COCONUT MILK CUPCAKES WITH COCONUT CREAM CHEESE FROSTING AND FRESH PINEAPPLE
Coconut Milk Cupcakes with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting and Fresh Pineapple
The coconut cake is surprisingly light and airy for a coconut cake. Very light. We were both quite shocked actually. But then again, most coconut cakes use oil and milk. We used butter and coconut milk. It seems like an obvious thing to do, but I've seen few recipes actually use the coconut milk. While the coconut came from a bag or a can, the pineapple really should be fresh for this cupcake; it just lightens the entire cake and pairs well with the coconutty cream cheese frosting. This recipe could easily be adapted to make a layer cake and is another one of those light and airy cakes perfect for the many picnics and potlucks that I'm sure you have coming with the warm weather. This recipe originally created for my site Vanilla Garlic. Be Sure to check it out!
