Maybe I should just start a food blog. LOL… I was talking about making these cupcakes over on facebook and twitter and a number of people bugged me for the recipe so here it is! It’s pretty basic and simple and best of all EASY.
Coconut Key Lime Cupcakes ~ makes 24
1 package vanilla cake mix
1 package instant french vanilla pudding mix
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
5 tbp. key lime juice (bottled kind is fine)
store bought whipped frosting (I prefer vanilla… do you sense a theme? 🙂
1-2 cups of shredded coconut
Set the oven at 350 degrees and line your muffin pan. Mix first 6 ingredients in a mixing bowl and scoop into the cups, about 3/4 full. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let them cool.
Add a layer of frosting; it doesn’t matter if you’re messy, the coconut will hide it. 🙂 Pile on the coconut, as little or as much as you like. EAT! 🙂
