3 cups all purpose flour

2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 tablespoons corn or tapioca starch

2 cups sweetened flaked coconut

4 eggs

1 cup vegetable oil

1 cup sour cream

1 cup coconut milk

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon coconut extract


Step by Step Instructions


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Mix wet ingredients together in a large bowl, combining until smooth.


In the bowl of your mixer, fitted with beaters or the paddle attachment, combine the dry ingredients, but not the coconut, and whirl to blend.


With the mixer running, add the wet ingredients to the dry and blend well to make a smooth batter.


Add coconut and blend to combine.


Scoop batter into cupcake tins, filling 2/3 full.  This recipe makes between 36 and 40 standard size cupcakes.


Bake for 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Remove from oven and allow the cupcakes to sit in the pan for 5 minutes.  Then remove to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before frosting.


Frost with  the frosting of your choice.  I love coconut buttercream or cocoa fudge frosting on these!


Keep cupcakes in an airtight container or covered dome and eat within 5 days to maintain freshness.
