Coconut Cupcakes

When I took classes at The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts they gave us a recipe packet for each day of Baking Basics. During the Cake class, I was assigned Coconut Cupcakes.

Coconut Cupcakes

See Coconut Cupcakes on Key Ingredient.

The recipe is an adaptation of Ina Garten's. The original can be found here. It claims that it makes 18-20 cupcakes but I made an even 24.

If you're looking for a moist, buttery, flavorful coconut experience, this is it. I've also made a 2 layer 9-inch cake using this recipe and the recipient claimed it was the best coconut cake she's ever had- and she's from the South!

Some chopped almonds to cover the top in addition to the coconut would make a delicous Almond Joy-style treat.
