    I have found that coconut in cake batter can make the resulting cake rather dense. Not so with this fluffy, light as air cake recipe with a light coconut flavor from Martha Stewart. I cut out the middle of the cupcakes with a biscuit cutter and filled with coconut cream pie filling from Tom Douglas recipe. Magnifique! Thanks, Martha. You make those of us raised by non-cooking role models look like master chefs and bakers.

    Made these cupcakes for fun. I love to bake. These cupcakes came out super moist and fluffy. The cupcakes looked egg shell white. I used a store bought frosting to frost these cupcakes. But they were very good. Baked these twice. The hardest part to this recipe is beating the egg whites. I first used a standmixer and egg whites that came out of a carton. Came out watery and some fluff. Tried a second time by seperating the yolks and using a hand mixer. Had more control of mixer. Way better.

    I've only had angel food cake onces in my life but I don't remember it tasting like meringue. Is it supposed to taste like meringue with just a hint of coconut?

    Noticed mixed reviews on this cupcakes. If you don't have much experience baking cupcakes- I wouldn't recommend. Prep time longer- several steps that are much different than most cupcake recipes. Read through several times.Yes, it does resemble Angel Food cake- but with yummy coconut and more flavorful. My husband and I both enjoyed this cupcake- light, fluffy- different with the coconut. Used Thai Kitchen Lite Coconut Milk (usually found in the ethnic section of supermarket).Didn't ice.

    Delicious Cupcakes! Terrible Frosting! I tried the frosting twice and it didn't work out either time. I ended up using the light cream cheese frosting recipe that is posted with a chocolate cupcake recipe. The cream cheese and coconut go VERY well together, it's not at all too sweet, which i sort of thought that it would be.

    These are amazing! I made mini cupcakes and used a classic vanilla, butter, confectioners sugar icing with shredded coconute, toasted, for garnish. Everyone loved them! Great for a coffee and dessert get together
