White Chocolate Cupcakes with Lime Frosting and Coconut Topping

I have not really made anything ‘new’ or out of my comfort zone for a while, so I thought it was about time. To be honest, I am not sure where today’s recipe came from it just sort of was an idea I had, which is slightly odd as I REALLY hate coconut but I went with it anyway! Here is my recipe forΒ White Chocolate Cupcakes with Lime Frosting and Coconut Topping:


  • 150g of Butter
  • 100g of Sugar
  • 100g of Flour
  • 1tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/2tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 2 Eggs
  • 100g of White Chocolate
  • 100g of Icing Sugar
  • 1 Lime
  • 75g of Shredded Coconut

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (fan)
  2. Cream 100g of the butter and the sugar together in a bowl until smooth
  3. Then add the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and mix until crumbly
  4. Whisk in the eggs until smooth
  5. The melt the white chocolate (over boiling water or in the microwave) and add the cake mixture
  6. Combine thoroughly before evenly pouring the mixture into your cupcakes cases
  7. Put in the over for 10-12 minutes (you can tell when they are ready by pressing the top lightly and seeing if it bounces back to shape)
  8. Once baked, get the cupcakes and allow to cool
  9. Whilst they are cooling you can prepare the frosting
  10. Cream the remaining butter, icing sugar, zest of the lime and 2 tablespoons of the juice together in a bowl until smooth and creamy
  11. Use a palette knife to ice the cupcakes
  12. The pour the shredded coconut into a small deep bowl and dip the tops of the cupcakes in one by one
  13. Once this has been done to coat the frosting, refrigerate the cupcakes for 15 minutes before eating

Note: This recipe makes 12 cupcakes

Now, I did not try one of these White Chocolate Cupcakes with Lime Frosting and Coconut Topping as you can understand but I got extremely good feedback from them. I think that it might have inspired me to come up with a few more interesting flavour combination ideas for my future cupcakes!

I would love to hear your favourite combinations…

  6. I was going to say, you might not like coconut, but I bet you had lots of willing volunteers to eat them for you (how our friends and family suffer for us, eh?)! πŸ˜‰

    1. Suffer, ha, my husband sweet talks me into making batches just for him to take to work! One of his colleagues even put ‘his wife makes awesome cupcakes’ in a peer review πŸ˜‰
