Lemon. Lime. Coconut. In my head the combination summons up images of summer, long cool drinks on the deck in the balmy evening with that slight tinge of sunburn on the cheeks. A sunny feel-good trio of flavours.
This cupcake is moist, tangy, sweet and so satisfying.
Lemon, Lime and Coconut Cupcakes
1 1/4 cup plain flour
3/4 cup sugar
Rind and juice of 1 lemon
3 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
2 teaspoons baking powder
Combine all ingredients except baking powder in bowl and mix on high for 3 minutes. Add baking powder when light and creamy and mix to combine. Pour into 15 cupcake cases and bake for 15 mins on 160deg C or until springs back when you touch. Set aside to cool.
Once cool fill with lime curd and top with buttercream from this recipe here - instead of peanut butter I used a pina colada flavouring. Sprinkle with toasted coconut.
