Coconut Angel Food Cupcakes

Coconut Angel Food Cupcakes

We’ve been all about warming comfort cakes here at The Cupcake Blog lately, but light snacking is important too. It’s January, and we’ve all made resolutions for the new year, some involving shedding a few pounds. If that’s the case, these cupcakes fit the bill. Based on angel food cake with a light coconut flavor infusion, these cupcakes are light, airy and perfect for a sweet treat without that overwhelming full feeling. Plus, they look charmingly similar to the snow piles from last weekend’s #Blizzard2016! Not a huge fan of coconut? Keep in mind the taste is very light here, but if coconut turns you all the way off, substitute vanilla flavor instead, and enjoy these cakes just the same!
