Coconut Lime Cupcakes (Coconut Flour)

 I fancied something sweet one afternoon so thought I’d whip up a batch of cupcakes with coconut and lime.   Light, delicious and hit the spot.  I purposely have not included my topping recipe as you may want to use your own or change it.   If you do want it, let me know and I’ll adjust the recipe but sometimes cupcake toppings are a very personal choice!

 I smoothed these delicious coconut lime cupcakes with a cream cheese topping then sprinkled with desiccated coconut but you can decorate them as you see fit.  Perhaps you will enjoy them plain or maybe a whipped cream topping?  I wanted a coconut taste overload!

This recipe is my favourite cupcake recipe with coconut flour.  It’s fun to adapt it with other flavours.   Use and enjoy!

    I used a buttercream icing made with browned butter. Flavoured with coconut rum instead of vanilla extract. Powdered erythritol. Lots of toasted coconut on top. Serious YUM!

        Yes, I use cream cheese, butter and ground erythritol. Add a dash of vanilla and coconut milk to blend.

    Excuse my ignorance but when you say coconut milk are you referring to the thick canned variety or the boxes of drinking coconut milk?

      Hi! It’s the can of milk. The boxes would not be thick enough. Hope you enjoy them!
