Triple Coconut Cupcake Recipe
This cupcake was created by Crazy for Crust for the Bella Cupcake Couture Blog Party.
Recipe adapted from a Betty Crocker Cake Magazine
Yield: 24 cupcakes


For the Cupcakes
  • 2 cups sweetened flaked coconut, toasted (see note)
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk (from a 14 ounce can)
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cups coconut milk (see note)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
For the Frosting
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 1 cup toasted coconut (see note)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake pan with liners (24 cupcakes).
  2. Stir together 2 cups coconut and sweetened condensed milk in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. Mix cake mix, coconut milk, oil and eggs with a hand mixer on low for 30 seconds, then on medium for 2 minutes. Divide batter evenly in the cupcake pans (about 3/4 full). Scoop 1 tablespoon of the coconut mixture onto the top of each cupcake.
  4. Bake 15-18 minutes until the cupcake springs back when touched. Cool completely before frosting.
  5. To make the frosting, beat butter with a mixer until smooth. Slowly beat in powdered sugar and mix until crumbly. Add coconut extract and 2 tablespoons milk and mix until smooth. If needed, add another tablespoon of milk to reach desired consistency. (I used 3 tablespoons).
  6. Frost cupcakes with a spatula or a pastry bag. Top generously with toasted coconut.
