Coconut Cupcake


After Vietnamese Coconut Tarts,  this time it's Thai Style  Coconut Cake adapted from Your Favorite International Cuisine Cookbook by Noel Young. I like it better when it's bake in cupcakes the way I did on top photo. It's easier to bake! I used wheat flour and brown sugar.

5 eggs, yolk and white separated
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
100g butter (1 stick), melted
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 cup wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
2 tablespoon baking powder



 For toppings:
thick coconut cream
toasted dessicated coconut (or coconut flakes


In a bowl, beat the egg whites thoroughly; set aside. In another bowl, mix the sugar, salt and egg yolks, beat well. Add flour and baking powder to the egg mixture. Fold in egg whites, and beat thoroughly. Place in a pan and bake in pre-heated oven for 175°C (350°F) until the top is golden brown. Remove from the heat, prick some holes then top with coconut cream and sprinkle with dessicated coconut.

Have a great week everyone!

I've been in such a coconut mood lately. You're making it ten times worse!

I almost chose your coconut tarts to feature in this week's carnival. These coconut cupcakes look equally as delicious.

Thanks for linking both to Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays!
