Pina Colada Cupcakes

I'm very influenced by the shows I watch on the Food Channel. Watching Cupcake Wars made me want to create new cupcake recipes. So, here's my newest creation:


Pina Colada Cupcakes

2 Cups unbleached white flour

3/4 Cup sugar

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 Cup vegetable oil

1 Cup pineapple juice

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

4 egg whites

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray muffin cups with non-stick baking spray or use muffin liners.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together all of the ingredients except the egg whites. Add egg whites and use an electric mixer to beat it on high speed for about 2 minutes. Pour into muffin cups and bake for 20-25 minutes.

When the cupcakes are cool enough to remove from the baking cups, use a toothpick to poke holes all over the tops of the cupcakes. Then dip each cupcake, topside down, into a bowl of Cream of Coconut. Place the cupcakes, right-side up, on a plate and refrigerate for one hour.


The Frosting

1/4 Cup (1/2 stick) of butter, melted

2 1/2 Cups of powdered sugar

2 Tablespoons of pineapple juice

Mix butter sugar, and juice together until smooth. Frost cupcakes and sprinkle with toasted coconut.
