Coconut Crumble Cupcakes

Fasting cravings started kicking in over the weekend, and all I could think of were my mums famous coconut cupcakes. I rang her up, and we had a long discussion on the method she uses to bake these tasty treats.

Mum usually semi bakes vanilla cupcakes, and adds the coconut mixture on top and then re-bakes them till golden. On the phone she suggested that for a neater looking cupcake to try baking the cupcake and mixture together. That didn’t really go too well.

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so I will share a few with you on #howididit

I started out with a basic Vanilla Cupcake Recipe:

Then I made the coconut topping:

First, Mums tried tested and never failed method:

I baked the cupcakes till the inside was cooked, and the tops were pale, before pulling them out to add the coconut topping and then rebaked the cupcakes till they were golden.

Then, our experimental batch:

I added both mixtures into the cup cases, and hoped for the best!

The results speak for themselves. I do have to say, I much prefer to stick to the traditional method. If you do happen to try this recipe, let me know how you go!

Here are the finished cuppies 🙂

Mums method: (the better method) 

Experimental Method: (Epic fail in the looks department, but still tasted delicious!)

I hope you have enjoyed this post:) If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me on Facebook messenger, or by email :
