Coconut cupcake preparation method
Pierce the fresh coconut with a sharp knife in two places (where the indentations are) and drain the coconut milk from it. Next, you can cut the coconut with a hacksaw, and make candlesticks from the shell halves for a summer residence, or insert a sharp knife between the two halves of the shell and divide the nut in half.
Mix butter and sugar in a 1: 1 ratio in a blender until a homogeneous light yellow cream is obtained. The oil should be at room temperature, slightly softened.
Add wheat flour with soda or baking powder to the whipped mass, you can also use self-rising flour.
Put sour cream in the dough, then the egg. Mix gently so that no lumps remain. Sour cream in this test can be replaced with kefir or yogurt.
Take half a fresh coconut. Remove the brown peel from it, rub it on a fine grater. Half a medium-sized coconut makes about 80 grams of finished pulp. Add coconut and raisins to the dough, mix gently again.
To make your cupcakes beautiful, festive and festive, be sure to use paper baking baskets. We fill each basket 2/3 with dough, insert an almond nut into the center of the cake. The paper molds with the dough must be placed in metal molds, otherwise the cupcakes will blur when baked.
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Bake the coconut muffins for 30 minutes on the middle shelf. It may take a little less or more time, depending on the characteristics of the oven. The cupcakes should be removed when they rise and turn golden brown. Cool them on the wire rack.
We decorate muffins with coconut with ready-made confectionery decor. In just 45 minutes (excluding the time to cut the coconut), a delicious homemade treat was obtained. It remains to spend a little time packing it, and you can go on a visit, amaze your friends or relatives with your skill. Good luck and bon appetit!
