Coconut Cupcakes

Today, this blog completes one year. How time flies!!! My mind was preoccupied with the thoughts of my Dad's surgery that I completely lost track of it. A reminder from wordpress put me back on track...Being the first anniversary, I had to make something special. The first thought was to make Pina C


  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt - (I omitted this as I used salted butter)
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted butter
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 - 1/4 cups Coconut milk - (medium thick)
  • 1 - 1/2 teaspoons Coconut extract - (I used pineapple essence)
  • 5 Egg whites


  • Sieve the flour along with baking powder and salt(if using) .
  • Keep aside
  • Beat butter in a bowl for a minute on medium speed.
  • Add the sugar and beat for another minute.
  • add the coconut milk and essence and mix well.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture into the butter mixture and beat for 2 minutes.
  • In another bowl, beat the egg whites till stiff peaks are formed.
  • Fold the egg whites into the flour mixture until well incorporated.
  • Pour inot the cupcake moulds.
  • Bake in a preheated oven of 180C for 15- 20 minutes.
  • Let cool completely before frosting.


You can bake a cake using the same mixture.�Bake it in 180C for 23-28 minutes or till the skewer comes out clean.�Please note that the time taken in each oven varies from one another.�Keep a check to ensure that your cake is done right.
