Mixing it Up! My Hurricane Irene Cupcake Recipe

When I googled "hurricane cupcake" I did not really expect to find anything. There it was, a recipe for hurricane cake. I did not like all the ingredients in the recipe so I am changing it a bit. I'm leaving out the cream cheese - I don't have it anyway and adding frosting. Was not thrilled with the look of the real recipe. Haven't made them yet but after this post, heading into the kitchen in case we lose power. Pix to follow! So here goes:

You'll need:

1/2 cup margarine
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup flaked coconut & additional 1/2 cup of coconut

Chocolate Cake Recipe see previous post)

Melt the butter & mix in the chopped pecans and coconut
Spread into each cupcake liner, fill 1/2 the liner with cake batter, sprinkle some additional coconut /pecan mix and then add the remaining batter. Bake at 350 until done by testing. Probably about 15 -18 min.

Your choice: chocolate or vanilla frosting. Recipes are in previous posts. I'm going with chcoclate. Toast the coconut lightly in the oven and fold into the frosting.

I think this will taste delicious! It will satisfy my chocoholics!

Stay Safe! Let me know what you think!
