Sweet Treat Sunday – Bounty Cupcakes

I like to think that I am the first one to come up with this idea; combining a gorgeous coconut sponge with a delicious milk chocolate buttercream and calling it the “Bounty Cupcake”. I haven’t seen them anywhere else…(I somehow doubt I am the first though)! They were absolutely fabulous and mouth-wateringly moreish…

Bounty Cupcakes


110g unsalted butter
180g caster sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
125g self raising flour
120g plain flour
125ml coconut milk
25g desiccated coconut

For the chocolate buttercream:
150g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
50g unsalted butter
100g icing sugar

  • Line a muffin tray with paper cases
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and smooth
  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition and adding the vanilla at the end
  • Combine the two flours in a separate bowl. Add one-third of the flours to the creamed mixture and beat well. Pour in one-third of the coconut milk and beat again. Repeat these steps until all the flour and milk have been added
  • Fold in the desiccated coconut using a metal spoon
  • Divide between the paper cases and bake at 160°C for 25 minutes

To make the chocolate buttercream:

  • Melt the chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a pan of boiling water. Do not let the bottom of the bowl actually touch the water
  • When fully melted set aside to cool whilst whipping up the buttercream mixture
  • Beat the butter and icing sugar together until thick and creamy
  • When you have reached the desired consistency, pour in the melted chocolate and mix thoroughly
  • Pipe onto the cupcakes, sprinkle desiccated coconut over the top and add a slice of Bounty to finish.
