Have you ever tried making your own cupcakes from scratch? This simple recipe for Coconut Cupcakes and Fluffy Frosting can get you started. Baking your own dessert recipes at home can be a very rewarding experience, and it can be a much healthier alternative to buying pre-made cupcakes at the store or pre-packaged cake mixes that come out of a box. When you make your own food, you know each and every ingredient you are adding to your bowl, but when you buy packaged goods and powdered mixtures, you don’t – unless you are able to read the label, but even then, you can’t always be sure of what you’re getting. The Environment Working Group (EWG) has analyzed 80,000 products, based on three criteria: nutrition, ingredients, and processing concerns, and unfortunately, very few of the cupcake mixes they’ve graded score very well. These mixtures tend to include food additives, modified ingredients, and non-specific ingredients (such as “flavor”). This recipe for Coconut Cupcakes and Fluffy Frosting is easy to make, tastes delicious, and there’s nothing like eating fresh homemade cupcakes that come straight out of the oven, just like Grandma used to make.*
