I really enjoy spending my free time baking so I thought I'd set up a blog dedicated to just that :)

Chocolate and Coconut Cupcakes

150g firmly packed brown sugar
25g cocoa powder
75g self raising flour
75g plain flour
25g dessicated coconut
125g butter, melted
1 egg
80ml milk

For the chocolate buttercream:
70g butter
1 tbsp milk
120g icing sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder, sifted

Preheat the oven to 160'c and line a 6 hole muffin tin with cupcake liners.

Sift the sugar, cocoa and flours in a large bowl, then stir in the coconut, butter, milk and egg.  Divide the mixture between the cupcake liners and bake for 35 minutes.  Stand in the tins for 5 minutes then put on a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the buttercream beat the  butter, milk, icing sugar and cocoa powder in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, then frost each cupcake.

  1. I made these for Women's Day there was a vintage tea party in town which my mum helped organise and I took these down, they were lovely, very rich and chocolatey.
