My daughter, Elizabeth, came up with this incredible recipe. The cream cheese in the middle is a fun surprise when someone takes their first bite.


Total Time

Prep: 40 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling


Makes

1-1/2 dozen


Ingredients

  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/3 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup 2% milk

FROSTING:

  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons clear vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut


Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar and coconut extract until smooth.
  • In a large bowl, cream butter and remaining sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
  • Spoon 1 rounded tablespoon batter into each prepared cup. Drop cream cheese mixture by scant tablespoonfuls into center of each cupcake. Cover with remaining batter, about 1 scant tablespoon each.
  • Bake 16-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the cake portion comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
  • For frosting, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, water and vanilla until blended. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Frost cupcakes; sprinkle with coconut. Refrigerate leftovers.
