Recipe by Cupcake Princess
"This is a great cupcake recipe that I created. Lemon and coconut together is such a great combo. If you want, you can substitute lime zest for the lemon zest in the frosting, for lime coconut cupcakes instead. You can also add no zest at all to make regular coconut cupcakes."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/4 cups

grated lemon zest

these are very delicious. I added one tsp. of lemon juice and blueberry's on top. it made 17 muffins. will make this again. :)
I only rated this a 3 star recipe. The cupcakes were nice and light, but I made these because of the "lemon". My family likes lemon anything and these did not have much of a lemon taste. Trying to figure out how to make these with more lemon flavor. Perhaps some lemon juice in the batter AND the frosting.
People at work raved about how light and delish these are and enjoyed the icing...turned out moist, light and tasty! Easy to make.
I didn't change a thing in the recipe. The cupcakes were delicious! Perfectly moist and fluffy. I didn't have the ingredients to do the icing but it sounds wonderful.
