today was a day of celebration
the husband and I passed the Canadian driver's license test
we are now free as birds again
and what goes better with celebrations than cupcakes?
so we drove to Cupid's Cupcakes
I mentioned them before in this post
and treated ourselves with princess, red velvet, carrot cake and chocolate mint
~ mmmm... ~
and I hear you thinking
very nice Maaike, but I don't live within driving distance to Cupid's
so what is in it for me?
I thought about that
and decided to treat you with a cupcake recipe
the easy recipe of the cute and delicious cupcakes I made this weekend, to be seen in this post
you can find it below here
so... let me know what you think!
~ happy cupcake baking ~
Mini Lemon Coconut Cupcakes
(for about 24 mini's)
100 gr butter
120 gr sugar
120 gr flour
50 gr grated unsweetened coconut
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
for the frosting
150 gr icing sugar
2 table spoons hot water
2-3 table spoons fresh lemon juice
Start with the frosting: mix the icing sugar together with the water and lemon juice for about 10 minutes for a white and shiny finish.
Preheat the oven to 180C. Put the mini cupcake liners in the mold. Melt the butter in the microwave, do it carefully so it does not overheat. Wash the lemon, peel it and press the lemon. Mix the eggs with the sugar until fluffy. Add the flour, melted butter, lemon zest and juice, salt and coconut. At last add the baking powder.
Fill the mini cupcake liners with the mixture and put them in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven.
When the cakes are ready, take them out of the oven and let them cool for a moment. Add the icing when they are still a little warm.
