Piña Colada Cupcakes

National Piña Colada day was a couple days ago so I’m a little late.  The cupcake is pineapple and the frosting is coconut.  Makes 30 cup cakes.

Piña Colada Cupcakes

1 stick butter

1 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon white vinegar

1 cup buttermilk

1 tin pineapple rings with 1/2 the juice, blended in a blender

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 1/2 cups cake flour


Coconut Frosting

1 stick butter, very soft

4 cups powdered sugar

2 teaspoons coconut extract

1/4 cup lite coconut milk

For cupcakes:  Heat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix butter and sugars. (I like to use a handheld mixer.)   Add egg.  Add remaining wet ingredients.  Then continue with dry.  Prepare cupcake pan with paper cups and fill half way.  Bake about 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool completely.

For Frosting:  Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well incorporated and smooth.

Ice cupcakes.
