Day 260 – Coconut and Peach Cupcakes

17 Apr

The weekend is so (so) close.  But, before we dive into the gluttony that comes with the weekend, I thought we’d another light and Springy cupcake.  Hence, these Coconut and Peach Cupcakes (recipe below from Lobster & Swan).

The cupcakes are moist, but crumbly. They have a slightly sweet flavor, almost like cookie dough.

Coconut-Milk-Frosting

The frosting is smooth and silky. It has a sweet, sugary flavor. It doesn’t have a terribly strong coconut flavor.

Together it’s a sweet, simple little cupcake. It’s smooth and soft, with a little tartness from the peaches in the middle.
