I made these cupcakes and a 13x9 cake with the measurements given below and kids started digging into the cake before the pictures were taken...
I added a little coffee extract this time in the cake, and flavor is just delicious.
Going into the recipe...
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 25 minutes
Makes : 12 cupcakes and a 13x9 cake
All purpose flour: 2 1/2 cups
Baking Powder: 1 tsp
Baking Soda : 1/2 tsp
Salt : 1 tsp
Unsalted room temperature butter: 10 oz
Sugar : 2 cups
Eggs : 5
Coffee extract : 1 1/2 tsp
Yogurt / curd / buttermilk:2/3 cups
Sweetened coconut flakes: 1 1/2 cups
Cream of coconut: 8 fl oz
Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, soda, salt and keep it aside.
Use a hand mixer to cream butter, add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and beat until they are mixed well. Add coffee extract, curd and dry ingredients and beat to mix it up. Don't over do. Fold in the coconut flakes.
Take a 12 cup muffin pan, place cupcake liners and fill the batter about 2/3 so there is room to raise.
Grease a 13x9 cake pan and pour the rest of the batter in the pan.
Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
Let them cool, poke 3 holes with a toothpick for cupcakes and pour 2tbsp of cream of coconut over them and drizzle some toasted coconut flakes.
For the cake, poke several holes and follow the same process.
