DIFFICULTY RATING: MEDIUM
There's something about Easter that makes me want to bake - I think it's the luxury of two extra days off work, mixed with the fact you know the vast majority of people are also embracing their sweet tooth (so calories don't count).
I discovered this vanilla & coconut recipe on one of my favourite lifestyle blogs three years ago and pinned it to my Easter Board to remind me to try it. It originates from Martha Stewart and is a great option for those who fancy a change from pure chocolate (!).
And here's how I got on...
For someone who doesn't bake as much as people think she does (sister S is the family's star baker), I'm pretty proud of this attempt!
Scroll down for more snaps from the bake and my Top Tips...
- The recipe is for 40 cupcakes. Make sure to reduce your quantities if you want to make less
- I hate having to convert American 'cups' into English grams/ounces so decided to purchase these. MUCH easier!
- Make sure your butter is at room temperature - really difficult to whip otherwise
- Add a bit of bling with these
