Makes: 12

  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour, sifted
  • 3/4 cup (165g) caster (superfine) sugar
  • 125 grams unsalted butter, softened and chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (25g) shredded coconut
  • 250 grams sour cream, for the chocolate ganache icing
  • 200 grams dark chocolate, melted, for the icing
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C (325°F). Place the flour, sugar, butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat on medium speed for 6 minutes or until pale and smooth.
  2. Spoon the mixture into twelve 1/2-cup-capacity (125ml) cupcake tins lined with paper cases. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Place on a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. While the cupcakes are cooking, make the chocolate ganache icing. Place the sour cream and chocolate in a large bowl and mix until smooth. Set aside at room temperature for 30 minutes or until cool and thickened. Using a palette knife, spread the icing over the cupcakes and sprinkle with coconut before serving.
