The basic recipe first....
2 cups S.R. Flour.
3/4 cup Castor Sugar.
3/4 cup of Milk.
1/2 cup softened Butter.
Cream the sugar and butter together, add eggs and mix again.
Now put in the milk and mix a little and then slowly,
a little at a time, add the flour. I used my hand held mixer, but
you could use a wooden spoon or a Kenwood/K.A.
Place mix into cupcake cases and cook in the oven for
20-25 minutes at 170c
To make the Pineapple and Coconut Cupcakes, I did this.
Changed the milk to Coconut milk.
Added tiny pieces of Pineapple to the mix before going in the oven.
1 pack Philly Cheese (at room temp)
1 1/2 cups Icing Sugar.
2 tablespoons of Pineapple Juice. (Maybe a wee bit more if needed)
Mix the Cheese and juice together, then add the icing sugar,
again, a little at a time.
When the cakes have cooled, ice them and sprinkle Coconut flakes
over the icing and top with a piece of pineapple.
