Recipe by Jessica
"A white cake recipe with a coconut twist. I had some coconut in my fridge that needed to be used, and this is what I came up with. If you want a more intense coconut flavor, add a teaspoon or two of coconut extract. Try putting your coconut in a food processor or blender if you prefer a smoother-textured cupcake. This is the first recipe I've come up with on my own, so any suggestions would be appreciated."

Thank you for the recipe Jessica. The cooking time can certainly be increased, but it is normal that different ovens have different baking temperatures. I used coconut oil in place of the applesauce and the butter - because I didn't have any applesauce and prefer coconut oil to all other oils when baking or cooking.
A nice frosting that I tried out recently that is great on the cupcakes - is 1 cup coconut oil, 3 cups powdered sugar, 5 teaspoons coconut milk. Whip it up (I just used a fork and didn't bust out the electric mixer, but sure that works too) and spread on the cupcakes - will intensify the tasty coconut flavor even more.
The bake time is WAY OFF. I cooked the cake for 45 minutes and it was still not done in the middle. The flavor is good so I give it a 2 star rating.
Yum! Who doesn't love coconut...especially in cupcakes!
Delicious! I ground the coconut. Perfect coconut flavour, nice and fluffy. Thanks!
I made mine with 1 cup of apple sauce instead of 1 half cup and the turned out amazing then I tried it again with 1 half cup and I liked the 1 cup of apple sauce WAY better they were more moist and creamy
I did it exacly the way it was posted, they didnt rise. I left them extra time and nothing.
My nine-year-old daughter and I made these. We used a little less sugar because I think most recipes call for too much. We over-beat the eggs whites but the cupcakes still turned out fine. We also substituted 1/3 of the flour with whole wheat. Wasn't sure how much coconut milk to use so just "eyeballed" the 1/2 can measurement. Made 15 cupcakes which baked for 22 minutes. Good cupcakes now. Probably perfect tomorrow after we lightly frost them!
These were delicious. They required about 4-5 more minutes than the recipe suggested so no issues there. I have no complaints, neither did the husband!
