Oh The Joy of Valentines Day! It’s a great excuse to make pink cupcakes. And that I did …

I used a one bowl vanilla cupcake recipe and used coconut flavoring instead of vanilla and i added one cup coconut flakes.

Here is the recipe…

One Bowl Coconut Cupcakes


* 2 cups all-purpose flour

* 1 1/2 cups sugar

* 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

* 1 teaspoon salt

* 1/2 cup shortening (very soft but not melted, Crisco is best)

* 3/4 cup milk (or half and half cream)

* 1 tablespoon coconut flavoring

* 2 large eggs

* 1 cup coconut flakes


  1. Set oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour with sugar, baking powder and salt until combined.
  3. Add in the shortening cream or milk, cocbut flavoring  and eggs; beat on medium speed of an electric mixer scraping the bowl constantly until just blended, fold in coconut flakes
  4. Pour into paper-lined regular size muffin tins filling under just three-quarters full.
  5. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the cupcakes test done.
  6. Frost once completely cooled
