      Why would I not make these? My husband hates coconut, "it's not the taste, it's the texture." So my solution is to replace the liquid in the recipe with coconut milk or cream (depending on the fat content of the liquid being substituted). That way I get a delicious coconut dessert and Matthew doesn't have to chew on coconut meat. YAY

      Coconut Cupcakes Recipe : Ina Garten : Food Network - makes at least 18-20 for a half recipe. Had extra frosting (maybe 1/4 to 1/3 extra?) Bottom of the cupcake gets oily.

    These were easy to make and had a fresh flavor, I drained the juice from the pineapple chunks and replaced the water in the vanilla cake mix with the pineapple juice. frosted them with buttercream and added freshly toasted coconut to the edges with a piece of pineapple and a cherry.
