RECIPE IDEA: Gluten Free Coconut Cupcakes (CAKE!)
Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about some super delicious Gluten Free Coconut Cupcakes (Cake). Don asked for coconut; I wanted chocolate; our granddaughter Taevi didn’t have a preference, so I made both. I’ve already posted the Gluten Free Chocolate Cake, so now I’m writing up the Coconut ones. And today, they were nearly a disaster!
I decided to make both kinds of cupcakes for Taevi’s birthday party, and what happened? The darn oven stopped working! So in the middle of baking, I had to take them to my neighbor’s house to finish baking. Thankfully, she was home and we had a lovely visit.
And after I frosted the cupcakes with Basic Frosting and coconut, I had to try them, didn’t I? (sugar buzz here) … To combat all that sugar, I ate a bunch of green olives. I know. It probably doesn’t even things out, and I probably ate about a million calories, but what a delightful lunch.
You’re gonna wanna eat these cupcakes.

Gluten Free Coconut Cupcakes
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup melted coconut oil
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
- 2 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 1 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
Heat the oven to 350F degrees.
Beat the sugar, eggs, salt, vanilla, coconut oil, and coconut milk until well combined.
In a separate bowl, mix the two flours, baking soda, and baking powder.
Pour the mixed dry ingredients into the wet ones and mix until blended.
Add the boiling water and coconut and blend.
For cupcakes, line a cupcake tin with cupcake liners and ladle about 1/2 cup batter into each liner. Or, for a sheet cake, grease a 9" x 13" cake pan and pour the batter into the pan.
Bake at 350F degrees for about 20 minutes for cupcakes or 25 minutes for sheet cake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Frost with Frosting and sprinkle some coconut on top, if desired.
