Coconut and apple cupcakes are delightful baked treats that bring together the flavors of coconut and apple in a single dessert. Here’s a general recipe to create these delicious cupcakes:


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)
  • 1 cup finely chopped apples (peeled and cored)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Optional: Additional shredded coconut for topping or frosting


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin/cupcake tin with paper liners.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set this dry mixture aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy using a hand mixer or a stand mixer.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Then mix in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, alternating with the milk, and mix until just combined.
  6. Gently fold in the shredded coconut and chopped apples using a spatula.
  7. Spoon the batter into the prepared cupcake liners, filling each about two-thirds full.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
  9. Once baked, remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. If desired, you can top the cooled cupcakes with frosting and a sprinkle of shredded coconut.

These coconut and apple cupcakes are a delightful combination of flavors, offering a moist and flavorful experience perfect for various occasions or as a sweet treat for any time of the day.
