When it's summertime, I prefer to bake fruit-based cupcakes. And since fruits taste so much better during the summer, the cupcakes are going to be insanely delicious. One fruit combo I love in cupcakes is orange-coconut. The citrusy flavor and sweetness definitely compliment each other. So, if you're an orange-coconut lover, these delicious cupcakes are for you!
Start with orange cupcakes as the base. They are soft, moist, and have a fresh fruity flavor. To really enhance the citrus flavor, the recipe uses a combination of orange zest, orange extract, and orange juice. Then, they are topped with a sweet coconut whipped cream frosting. You can decorate them however you like or keep it simple by decorating with white sprinkles.
What I love about this recipe is that it can be modified into different variations. Like, turning them into cranberry orange cupcakes by filling them with cranberry jam. Or you can use a combination of various zest such as lemon, lime, and grapefruit. You can also use another kind of frostings like orange cream cheese frosting or an orange buttercream frosting. This recipe can be easily changed depending on your preference. So, don't be scared of adding in your favorite ingredient!
