Pina Colada Cupcakes

Picture of Pina Colada Cupcakes
Sweet, slightly sticky, and with a slight crunch on top, these cupcakes are great if you're looking for something with a tropical flare. They have a sophisticated look to them that will wow your guests first visually, and then when they bite into them and realize this isn't just an ordinary cupcake!

Step 1: What You Need

For the Coconut Cupcakes:
2 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar (to try and impart some dark flavor, since I wasn't using rum)
1/2 tsp of salt
2 Tbs butter
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder

For the Pineapple Glaze:
2 cups pineapple juice (This is NOT the same as the syrup that comes in a can of pineapple)
2 Tbs of sugar

For the Pina Colada Frosting:
1 pinch of salt
3 Tbs room temperature butter
3 Tbs and 2 tsp coconut milk
1 Tbs Pineapple Glaze, (which will be made before the frosting.)
4 cups powdered sugar

For A Garnish:
Organic Coconut

Step 3: The Batter

Add the eggs, white and brown sugar, and salt into a bowl and mix well.

Add the butter and the milk to a saucepan. Heat until the butter is melted and the milk slightly bubbles on the edges.

Slowly add the milk/butter mixture into the eggs/sugar mixture, mixing all the time to keep the eggs from scrambling.

Add the flour and baking powder, mix until everything comes together.

Step 4: Bake

Divide the batter between your twelve cupcake papers and then place in the oven. They take about 15 to 20 minutes to cooks. Once they bounce back slightly when tapped they are done.
