I seriously love coconut. I dream about it. Coconut cake, pie, macaroons, almond joy. I sprinkle it on ice cream, yogurt, bananas. Yum. I even eat it straight from the bag.
I also seriously love My Baking Addiction. Jamie’s recipes are excellent and her photography is stunning. I drool over her posts frequently! I loved these little beauties. I only wish I could find the green and white straws. So cute. I adapted the Coconut Cupcake recipe from MBA without the lime.
I topped them with my house buttercream and a generous sprinkle (more like a downpour) of coconut. They were moist and delicious. I stored the extra in the refrigerator and they were even better the next day! Enjoy!
LeCake Notes: This batter is VERY thick. I added 1/2 cup half and half to thin. The cake is very dense and a little oily for my taste. I added 1 t vanilla because I add vanilla to everything. I did not have coconut extract so I added shredded coconut to the milk and strained it out.
