Coconut Cupcakes Cakes with Coconut and Chocolate Buttercream

Coconut and chocolate a perfect taste match, these cupcakes always disappear extra fast :)

Pre-heat oven to 190C/375F/Gas mark 5

Ingredients :
  • 3 oz/ 75 grams softened butter
  • 3 oz/ 75 grams  caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 oz/ 100 grams self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp dessicated coconut
  • 1tbsp milk

Beat the butter and the caster sugar together until light and fluffy
Add the egg and mix well.
Fold in the self-raising flour, dessicated coconut and add the milk, fold until just mixed.

Spoon mixture in oiled fairy cake/ muffin tin or place paper cases into the fairy cake/ muffin tins.

Bake for approx. 8-12 minutes (or until brown, push a strew into a small cake and if it comes out clean the little cake is cooked). Remove from oven and leave to cool.

To make buttercream - Beat together 3 oz softened butter (or margarine) with 5oz sifted icing sugar and 1 heaped tablespoon cocoa powder (not drinking chocolate) when mixed well add 1 heaped tablespoon dessicated coconut

Cover each little cake (when cooled) with the buttercream mixture, I added a small chocolate button to each cake for an extra decoration  :)
