"Tout-Coco" cupcakes

coconut cupcake 2

A beautiful sunny day ...

Fancy a gourmet and light recipe ...

Today will be a batch of 100% coconut cupcakes!

I managed to make a "light" icing (meaning in my opinion WITHOUT butter!) Made from whipped cream and mascarpone. I am also thinking of reusing it for future variations!

I give you the procedure to get 6 cupcakes (standard size):

Preparation of coconut cupcakes:

- Preheat the oven to 180 ° c. Place the paper boxes in your muffin tin.

- First mix the dry ingredients: 100g flour, 100g brown sugar, 30g grated coconut, 2 pinches of baking powder.

- Then add the liquid ingredients: 1 egg, 70ml of oil, 25ml of coconut milk.

- Stir well and pour the dough into the boxes, filling them about 3/4 of their height.

- Bake for 25 minutes (this varies depending on your oven).

Preparation of the coconut icing:

- Beat 6cl of whole liquid cream into whipped cream. As soon as it begins to set, add 8g of icing sugar. The whipped cream must be firm for the icing to hold together.

- Then add 60g of mascarpone, whisk again to mix well and set aside.

- Garnish a pastry bag (previously fitted with a star nozzle).

- Put in the fridge.

As soon as the cupcakes have cooled, top them with the coconut frosting.

      Hello and thank you for your comment.
      This mascarpone frosting has the advantage of holding well unlike other frostings. On the other hand, it is better to keep the cupcakes in the fridge between filling and tasting.
      I hope that answers your question!

    in the recipe for the icing I do not see how it is with coconut :)
    do you have to add grated coconut?

      Hello Emilie, indeed I forgot to specify it! You can either integrate the coconut directly into your mascarpone icing or decorate your cupcakes, then sprinkle the coconut last, like sprinkles :-) For the quantity, provide approximately 40g of grated coconut.

    when I added the mascarpone to the whipped cream, it fell back :( how can I prevent it from falling back?

    Thank you

      It could be that your whipped cream was not firm enough, or maybe you mixed the whole thing too much? This could "break" the airy effect of the whipped cream. You have to take it slow anyway, like snow whites. @ soon!

    Can we use the fluid mascarpone cream from it and turn to make this frosting?

      Hello Sissi, I do not know this cream, but I am wary, because if it is liquid, it is not really like the mascarpone that I use ...

    I realized it last night, super good, not disgusting, it's still light .. however I had to do it twice for the topping. too hot in my room and I failed to get my whipped cream the first time despite having put all my ingredients in the fridge. I keep your recipe, thank you very much
