Yum!! Lime and coconut cupcakes!?! According to the calendar it’s winter. According to the high 80’s temperature that we’ve been having here in Southern California, it’s Summer!! Which makes me want to eat summer treats! Nothing is more refreshing than the flavors of lime and coconut. So of course I had to make it into a cupcake!
These cupcakes turned out better than I had even hoped!! The cake is moist and flavorful. I was worried I was adding too much lime into the batter, but it’s the perfect amount! It gives the cake just the right lime flavor without it being too overwhelming.
The filling for these cupcakes is a creation meant to taste like the inside of an Almond Joy. You know that creamy coconut-y wonderful center of the Almond Joy?? That’s what I have in the center of these cupcakes! So if the cake isn’t moist and tasty enough for you? There’s this extra special surprise in the middle just waiting.
Top this all off with a coconut buttercream frosting. This decadent yet simple frosting is bursting with coconut flavor and perfectly complements the rest of the cupcake.
If you are a fan of lime and coconut then this is THE cupcake for you!
