Pina colada cupcakes – Enjoy tropical flavors of pina colada drink in these cupcakes. These are kids friendly and perfect to enjoy fresh pineapples.
When summer starts knocking the door, I look out for opportunities to try different drinks recipes. Especially, to enjoy spring and summer fruits like strawberries, pineapple, watermelon etc. I love making some of my favorite summer drinks like this pineapple mojito, strawberry, and pineapple sangria, peach lemonade to name a few.
However, when it comes to enjoying tropical flavors, pina colada tops the charts. I am absolutely in love with this creamy pineapple and coconut drink. The best thing that I love about this drink is how it is served. A cute little umbrella with a vibrant red cherry on a bed of creamy white drink along with fresh pineapple chunks is really inviting. Personally to me, it feels like having an indulgent dessert more than a drink.
So pina colada has everything in it to call it a dessert. Then why not make cupcakes using all of its flavors? So, today I’d be sharing with you these tasty pina colada cupcakes which are perfect to enjoy seasonal fresh pineapples.
Combine dry ingredients like flour, baking powder, and baking soda. In another bowl whisk sugar with egg and oil. Add pineapple pulp, coconut milk, mix until well combined and then add dry ingredients. Transfer the batter to a cupcake pan. Bake them in a preheated oven until well done. Once the cupcakes cool down, top them with a cream cheese frosting. Garnish with cherry and fresh pineapple chunk and, do not forget the umbrella!
