{In the Kitchen} Honey Coconut Cupcakes with Caramel icing!

Happy Friday dolls!! I hope the week has been good to you & you are well. Here's a little sweet treat for you to enjoy. I love to bake & I'm mad for cupcakes, just love them. They come in so many varieties, I never get tired of them. This one came from an old recipe book my husband had, it's a cake recipe that we adjusted to suit making cupcakes with instead of a whole cake. I've given the recipe as it is, but I always change a recipe every time I bake as new ideas always come to mind each time, so adjust it as you wish. Enjoy & have a wonderful weekend! 

Love loves

Transfer mixture to large bowl, stir in toasted coconut, half the sifted flour & half of the milk. 
Then stir in the rest of the remaining flour and milk.

  3. These cupcakes look delicious! I was alsolanning to bake cupcakes tomorrow but I'll stick to a simple recipe without frosting as I haven't baked anything in a loooong time - maybe a year? - and I don't want to mess it up.
    Have a lovely weekend!

  26. I agree with you about modifying the recipe as you go about the process. That's how it should be applied in life too. Life is not all about following a manual. I'm sure your cupcakes taste wonderfully sweet like you.

  27. These look scrummy! I'm not into baking more pasta creations ( anything to do with cheese really!!) might see if the Boyf fancies getting his apron on though and giving these a try :-) x
