Moist Coconut Maple Cupcakes

Moist Coconut Maple Cupcakes

Today I am babysitting for my gorgeous little niece and I promised her that next time she came over we would bake together. So I have been working on a recipe that I hope she will get as much fun from baking as scraping the mixing bowl (this took twice as long as baking the cupcakes in the oven!!!!)

 

 

 

This is a light, moist coconut cake with a hint of caramel from the use of maple syrup combined with coconut sugar as the sweetener.

 

 

I had a lot of coconut butter in the fridge which was pretty awesome because it meant we could make some luscious maple coconut frosting for a topping! The maple coconut frosting is so simple to make – plus it sets pretty firmly at room temperature (room temperature for England that is!!!!)

 

 

Down to baking…………………………with a quick cuddle for Snowdrop (her favourite toy rabbit) and a kiss for Auntie Laura we are on our way!
