Coconut Cardamom Cupcakes : Me and my daughter like salads so H wanted to take us to Sweet Tomatoes for a long time. We had time to go last weekend and it predominantly has salad varieties and vegetarian option. As we were enjoying the salad varieties, our little one who is fond of cakes, eyes were totally on the bakery section and he liked coconut cupcakes to core among the desserts he had. He tortured me like 3-4 days
to bake the same at home and finally I gave a try yesterday with loads of cardamom flavor. Yup coconut and cardamom are made for each other. It was super soft and spongy and well textured, the pictures says it all. I have adapted the recipe from here and if you want to go for eggless version I have provided it too at the end of the post do check it out. Since the weather was dull yesterday I couldn’t click better pictures than these…
But recently I have updated the recipe with homemade coconut milk and egg free version picture as shown above.

- Sift flour, baking powder and salt and keep aside.
- In a food processor or mixie, blend the shredded coconut to coarse (use pulse option, don’t powder it fine).

- Add room temperature whole egg and egg whites, after each addition of an egg beat to combine well.
- Now add flour in 3 batches alternate with coconut milk.
- Finally add the 1/4 cup milk, vanilla extract, cardamom powder to attain cupcake batter consistency.
