Coconut Filled Lemon Cupcakes with Sandra Lee
Ingredients: Make 2 dozen cupcakes
1 (18.25 ounce) box white cake mix
1 cup frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
½ cup sour cream
Coconut Cream filling (recipe follows)
2 (16 ounce) cans fluffy white frosting
1 teaspoon coconut extract
Garnish: sweetened flaked coconut, quartered lemon slices

Procedures:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degree. Line 2 (12 cup) muffin pans with paper liners.
  • In a large bowl, combine cake mix, lemonade concentrate, oil, and eggs. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Increase mixer speed to medium high, and beat until smooth. Stir in sour cream. Spoon batter evenly into prepared muffin cups. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pans for 2 minutes. Remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks (about 58 minutes).
  • Spoon coconut cream filling into a squeeze bottle with a long narrow tip. Insert tip into center of each cupcake, and squeeze about 1 tablespoon filling into each cupcake. Reserve remaining filling for another use.
  • In a medium bowl, combine frosting and coconut extract. Spread frosting evenly over each cupcake. Top each with coconut and a lemon slice, if desired. Store in refrigerator.
