Coconut Lime Cupcake recipe

Coconut lime cupcake recipes is the perfect summer time cupcake!

This coconut lime cupcake recipe is definitely a summer cupcake.  People might not always think of cupcakes when thinking of summertime, but that will change when you get one taste of this coconut lime cupcake.  It is light, fluffy, and zesty.  It just screams summer to me! Although, anything coconut and lime screams summer.

Up the flavor punch of these cupcakes by scooping out the center of the cooled cupcake and filling with coconut before topping with the lime frosting. And, of course, top the frosting with lime zest. This is a WOW cupcake that is oh. so. simple.

The coconut lime flavor combo is like Margaritas. And margaritas are reminiscent of summer.

These coconut lime cupcakes are full of memories of summer’s past and memories currently being made with my own family.

A version of Grandma’s lemonade: Mint-infused lemonade
Grandma’s Wild Rice Soup (I make mine dairy-free)
And, of course… pizza’s. The Macaroni and Cheese Grandpa would have loved:
Macaroni and Cheese Pizza
Tortilla Shell Pizza’s (a family of 12, we had alot of these!)
