 Ingredients List

  • 1 box devil's food cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • â…“ cup oil
  • ½ cup greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1 cup milk (I used fat free half and half)
  • ~~~~~~ For Frosting ~~~~~~~
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • â…“ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract (or more to taste)
  • 3-4 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  • â…“ cup toasted coconut flakes (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 and place cupcake liners in muffin tins.

Sift cake mix into a medium bowl and set aside. In a larger bowl mix together eggs, oil, greek yogurt (or sour cream), vanilla, coconut, and milk. Mix in cake mix until smooth. Fill each liner ¾ full. Bake 15-20 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

For the frosting, beat butter until very light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Mix in cocoa powder, coconut, and 3 tablespoons heavy cream, mix until smooth. Mix in 3 cups powdered sugar. Add additional cream and/or powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached (*for piping you will want to double the frosting recipe and look for a slightly stiffer consistency). Sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes if desired. Store in airtight container at room temperature up to 3-4 days. Enjoy!
