Instructions

    Cupcakes
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners, set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt for 20 seconds, set aside.
  4. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (preferably an attachment that constantly scrapes mixing bowl, if not stop mixer occasionally throughout entire mixing process and scrape down sides and bottom of bowl), whip together butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  5. Mix in eggs one at a time.
  6. In a liquid measuring cup stir together coconut milk, pineapple juice and coconut extract.
  7. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the butter sugar mixture and mix on low speed until nearly combined then add in 1/2 of the coconut milk mixture and mix until nearly combined, repeat process with flour and milk mixtures once more, then mix in last 1/3 of the flour mixture (again mixing only until nearly combined - there should still be some flour streaks).
  8. Fold in crushed pineapple being careful not to over-mix the batter. Divide batter among prepared muffin cups filling each nearly to the top.
  9. Bake in preheated oven until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean about 19 - 23 minutes. Cool in muffin tin several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cool frost with coconut buttercream, sprinkle shredded coconut over top, garnish with a maraschino cherry and a small pineapple wedge if desired.
  10. Coconut Buttercream
  11. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment whip butter until light and fluffy.
  12. Add in coconut milk, coconut extract and 1 cup of the powdered sugar and mix until combined, then add remaining powdered sugar and whip until light and fluffy (if needed you can add in a little more coconut milk or more powdered sugar to reach desired consistency).
