I kind of feel like the name "Fluffy Coconut Cake" is a misnomer because there is not one bit of coconut in this cake! It is just a basic cake that is topped with coconut cream cheese frosting. Nevertheless, these cupcakes were delicious... and I think the real star of this recipe is the coconut cream cheese frosting. The guava filling was interesting and paired well with the coconut, but I think the cupcakes were good without any filling at all, too. If you're looking for a recipe to use up all those extra egg whites you have in your freezer (like I always do after making ice cream!), this is a great one to make.
Thank you, Karen, for hosting this week. If you'd like the recipe, you can find it here. Make sure you check out the Sweet Melissa Sundays Blog Roll to see how everyone else enjoyed this coconut-y treat!
* Recipe notes:
- I made a full recipe and was able to make 34 cupcakes from it.- I baked my cupcakes for about 18-19 minutes before they were done.
