Coconut Cupcakes with Almond Cream Frosting
The complexity of this coconut cupcake recipe, with almond and vanilla enhancing the coconut flavor, makes for a very rich flavor.
This also makes 24 mini cupcakes. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
For the cream cheese frosting, I want the cream cheese to be the dominant flavor, so I do not use butter for this frosting. Crisco(R) (or any vegetable shortening) has a neutral flavor.
