Recipe Ingredients for Pina Colada Cupcakes

3 cups cake flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar
5 large eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup coconut milk

Recipe Directions for Pina Colada Cupcakes

  1. Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Line cupcakes pans with cupcake liners. Set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

  3. Cut up the butter into 1-inch pieces and place them in the large bowl of an electric mixer (use either a paddle attachment or beaters). Beat for 3 minutes on MEDIUM-HIGH speed until the butter is light and creamy in color. Stop and scrape the bowl. Cream the butter for an additional 60 seconds.

  4. Add the sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, beating 1 minute after each addition. Scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally. Add the eggs one at a time.

  5. Reduce the mixer speed and stir vanilla into the buttermilk. Combine with the coconut milk. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk mixture. Mix just until incorporated. Scrape the sides of the bowl and mix for 15 seconds longer.

  6. Using either a medium size ice cream scoop or a cup measuring cup, spoon the batter into the prepared cups. Drop the pan onto the counter top to burst any air bubbles, allowing the batter to settle.

  7. Center the pans onto the lower third of the oven and let bake 15 to 20 minutes or until the cake is lightly brown on top, but still soft to the touch, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes.
