What I Love: Double-Coconut Cupcakes

Hey Dolls!

So today I want to share with you a recipe for "Double-Coconut Cupcakes".
These babies have the perfect taste of Coconut (the frosting is HEAVEN!) & they look so super cute!
Learn how to make them below:

Love coconut? Cupcakes with a triple blast of coconut bring you to the tropics.

Prep Time
35 Minutes
Total Time
1:45 Hr:Mins
24 cupcakes

cups flaked coconut
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk (from 14-oz can)
box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow cake mix
1 1/4 cups water
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Coconut Cream Frosting
cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 teaspoon salt
teaspoon coconut extract
to 3 tablespoons milk

cup flaked coconut, toasted

Heat oven to 350°F for shiny metal pans (or 325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
In medium bowl, stir 2 cups coconut and the condensed milk; set aside.
In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (3/4 full). Top each with about 1 heaping teaspoonful coconut mixture.
Bake 17 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
In medium bowl, beat powdered sugar, butter and salt with spoon or with electric mixer on low speed until well blended. Beat in coconut extract and 1 tablespoon of the milk. Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. Immediately frost cupcakes. Dip tops of cupcakes into toasted coconut. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
Makes 24 cupcakes

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
To toast the coconut, bake in a shallow pan at 350°F for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
Instead of making the scratch frosting, use 1 container (1 lb) Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting instead.
