Coconut Cupcakes

These little cupcakes look rather simple? But they are packed with coconut flavour, my favourite! ^0^ They are not too sweet either, added sultanas/ raisins gave extra texture and natural sweetness to this simple moist coconut cupcake. 


hmmm....should have sprinkle more desiccated coconut over the surface :P

Moist and tender crumbs...you won't stop at one!
