|Blackberry Coconut Cupcakes|
These gluten-free, lactose-free cupcakes are utterly delicious! They're fluffy and tasty with a soft coconut crumb with blackberry jam filling and topped off with delightful coconut whipped cream. Not only were they a great way for everyone to enjoy cupcakes, even with food allergies, but they were also a delicious edition to the Party. Seamore The Seal Fluffiefriend and Cuddles The Turtle Fluffiefriend helped out.
Ingredients You'll Need:
1 Box Gluten-Free Vanilla Cake Mix
Coconut Milk from carton (you can find it with the almond and soy milk) (enough to replace the milk and/or water for the cake mix)
Coconut Oil (enough to replace the butter and/or other oils for the cake mix)
2 Cans Coconut Milk
4 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
2 Cups Blackberries
1 Cup Blueberries
As I mentioned before, my friend with celiac disease suggested I just use gluten-free cake mix rather than starting from scratch since I usually don't have gluten-free baking products around the house. Follow the directions on the back of the box except replace any water or milk in the directions with coconut milk from a carton and replace any butter or oil in the directions with coconut oil. Both are a 1:1 ratio. Bake the cupcakes.
Meanwhile, make some 5 Minute Blackberry Jam using the blackberries and blueberries (the blueberries are there to sweeten the jam, so if your blackberries are plenty sweet then just use more blackberries.) I found the idea for coconut whipped cream on Pinterest. I like the Coconut Whipped Cream directions from Nutty Kitchen. A couple notes when I googled it further though- when you're buying the canned coconut milk shake the can a little- if it swishes then that's not a good brand. Get a brand that doesn't make a sound. I didn't add the cinnamon or vanilla like it suggested, but I did add 4 tablespoons of powdered sugar to keep the whipped cream stiff throughout the party- otherwise it'd melt.
Make sure the cupcakes are completely cooled before stuffing and frosting.
Serve and enjoy! They are delicious!
My friend with the lactose allergy was glad to have an option and my friend with celiac disease couldn't stop eating them! They were delicious!
