Lemon and Coconut Cupcake Recipe

A sweet tang of lemon with a delicious taste of textured coconut – just follow this Lemon and Coconut Cupcake Recipe ;)
Don’t these cupcakes sound amazing!! Now I am not usually a fan of coconut but these are just the best!! A sweet moist sponge, a tang of lemon curd topped with a topping of your choice, or if preferred as they come.. Which is equally delicious.

This fab gourmet Lemon and Coconut Cupcake Recipe was inspired by UK Food ;-)

Lemon and Coconut Cupcake Recipe Ingredients:

  • 115 g butter, at room temperature
  • 125 g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 100 g yogurt, such as Onken Natural Set Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp lemon curd
  • 175 g self raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder, such as Dr.Oetker
  • 25 g desiccated coconut

To decorate:

  •  lemon curd, optional
  • meringues, optional
  • butter cream, optional

Lemon and Coconut Cupcake Recipe Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160/ gas 4.

2. Beat or whisk the butter and sugar together until light and creamy, gradually add the beaten eggs, whisking all the time.

3. Add the yogurt and lemon curd and blend into the creamed mixture.

4. Sieve the flour and baking powder together and then fold into the mixture along with the desiccated coconut.

5. Place dessert spoonful’s into the cases and place in the preheated oven. Cook for 25 – 30 minutes until firm to the touch, if you remove them too early they may sink slightly in the centre.

6. When cooked remove from the oven and leave 5 minutes in the muffin tins before placing on a baking rack to cool.

7. Decorate as you wish, but here are a few suggestions:-

  •  Lemon meringue – a spoonful of lemon curd encased with whipped meringue and browned in the oven.
  • Butter cream with the addition of a spoonful of lemon curd and some melted white chocolate, topped with a Dr Oetker wafer daisy.
  • Butterfly tops with a spoonful of lemon curd in the centre.

All the suggestions sound fab, i think i would go for the Butter Cream and lemon curd ;-)
