30 Second Coconut Cupcakes (GF)

I loooove coconut flavours in baking, so experimented a bit to make cupcakes that are gluten free and refined sugar free!
I used Pandan paste in this batch to make Pandan Coconut Cupcakes (love this flavour combo!) however this is a very versatile recipe and this recipe can be modified to make different flavoured cupcakes:
  • 1 teaspoon Pandan Paste (Pandan Coconut Cupcakes)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut essence (Coconut Cupcakes)
  • 20 grams cacao powder/cocoa (Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes)
  • the zest of 1 orange (Orange Coconut Cupcakes)
  • the zest of 1 lemon (Lemon Coconut Cupcakes)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste/essence/extract (Vanilla Coconut Cupcakes)
Add all ingredients to bowl
Mix 30 seconds/Speed 6
Spoon into 12 cupcake patties
Bake for 15 minutes at 160 degrees (preheated)
Serve with dusted icing sugar – optional…since it’s not ‘refined sugar’…but it looks pretty and it’s just a tiny bit! 🙂

Not sure why but my cupcakes came out really dry and didn’t rise. 🙁 Was there supposed to have baking powder too? The mixture was rather dry too, I followed the recipe, was just a bit short of dessicated coconut.
P.S. Love your easy to follow recipes, and seeing your twins’ journeys. They’re adorable! ?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
