How to Make Pina Colada Cupcakes


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Fill cupcake pan with liners.

    Mix all cake ingredients on low for 30 seconds, then on high for 2 minutes.

    Fill cupcake liners evenly, I filled 3/4 way full.
  2. Bake for 14 - 18 minutes, depending on your oven and the darkness of your cake pans. When pick comes clean from center, they are done.

    Place on cooling rack to cool.
  3. Mix frosting with extracts. Frost each cupcake; then dip in coconut.


    This could be made into a cake as well.
