Heavenly Coconut Cupcakes

Deneece Gursky


I recently made these for a neighbor of mine who is pregnant and was craving coconut cupcakes. My family was upset that I didnt make any for them so I decided to make another batch today for them. They were a huge hit! With coconut baked in and then sprinkled generously on top, these are a definite coconut lovers dream! fluffy bites of coconutty heaven!
