Coconut Chocolate Christmas Cupcakes

christmas cupcakesThis year we baked the cupcakes together with my son. This was soo much fun. We baked Coconut Chocolate Christmas Cupcakes which is actually another version of my chocolate cupcake (recipe is here: chocolate cake )

Coconut Chocolate Christmas CupcakesIngredients:

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup whole meal flour
  • 1/3 cup almond or hazelnut flour (or mix of both)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (room temp.)
  • 1/3 cup coconut shredded coconut
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Coconut Chocolate Christmas CupcakesIn a separate bowl mix cocoa, whole meal flour, baking powder, salt, almond/hazelnut flour and shredded coconut. The better you mix them, the smoother the cookie.

Coconut Chocolate Christmas CupcakesIt makes for 12 cupcakes. Bake the cupcake mix for 16-20 minutes and the cake mix for 45-50 minutes (check with a toothpick whether it is fully cooked or not. Poke the toothpick halfway in the cake, if it comes out clean, then it is ready.)

For the frosting; you can use your favourite frosting. I used the coconut frosting and dipped the cupcake in shredded coconut for a snowy effect.
