Coconut Cupcakes:: Recipe delight

Happy Daisy Cupcake Recipe DIY
These little beauties are heavenly - I know coconut isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I love it! They're really easy to make too - I definitely recommend giving them a try if like me, you're partial to a bit of coconut now and again.

To make the cakes, you will need:: 
175g Caster Sugar
175g Margarine (you can use butter, I prefer margarine - it's easier to mix you don't have to get of the fridge to soften, the previous afternoon!)
175g Self Raising Flour
3 Eggs
75g Desiccated Coconut
You'll also need cupcake cases (or muffin cases) and a baking tray / muffin tin - as well as the usual mixing bowl, wooden spoon etc! This recipe makes 24 cupcakes or 12 muffins.

Add your flour.

Then add the eggs.
Tip: Beat the eggs well before adding to the mix - it makes your cakes a little lighter.
Mix well and add your coconut.

Spoon in to cupcake cases - I put a heaped teaspoon of mix in each case.

I iced my cakes with glace icing, and sprinkled extra coconut on top!

I do love baking, probably more than I should! But still, I'm sure there's worse things I could be doing. If coconut's not your thing, why not check out the recipe for chocolate chip cupcakes, that I posted a while back!?
