Makes 12 Scrumptious Cupcakes
I love cherries and coconut and when I saw these in a book I just HAD to make them :-) yummy!
Sorry there aren't many pictures but the recipe is rather simple and easy to follow :-P
You Will Need
Preheat the oven to 180Celsius/350Fahrenheit/Gas Mark 4, and lay out your bun cases in a bun tray. If you don't have a bun tray (like me), then just double layer the bun cases on a tray.
Add caster sugar and 115g butter in a bowl and whisk together. When light and fluffy add 2 tbsp of milk, then gradually beat in the eggs. Don't worry too much if it curdles!
Sift in the baking powder and flour and fold in gently. I didn't use baking powder so that's why it is optional. Then fold in the coconut.
Then you want to cut up 115g of glace/maraschino/fresh cherries into quarters and fold into the mixture (actually save a few to put on the tops once you've spooned it all into the bun cases and they tend to sink when in the oven).
Add the remaining 55g of butter and the icing sugar together, don't mix too fast of the icing sugar goes everywhere! Then add in 1tbsp of milk to make it nice and fluffy.
