Cupcake Ingredients:

1 8 ounce can crushed pineapple, do not drain
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup coconut rum, I used Malibu *Plus additional for brushing on top of cupcakes
1/2 cup coconut, shredded, sweet

Coconut Colada Whip Cream Frosting:

8 ounces cream cheese, room temp
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon coconut extract or coconut flavor
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons Malibu Rum, optional
16 ounces of heavy whipping cream

Its hot, tropical temperatures and I think it’s time for a Piña Colada in the form of a cupcake. Escape to this yummy cupcake and your tastebuds will be transported to delightful adventure.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line tin with liners. In a medium bowl, add flour, baking soda and powder, sugar and salt and whisk together. Set aside. Combine melted butter with brown sugar together.
Using your mixer, combine egg, crushed pineapple, coconut rum, coconut milk. Add the brown sugar butter mixture and combine. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in the shredded coconut. Fill cupcake liners about 2/3 full. Bake for 19 minutes or until cake tester is in inserted and comes out clean. *As soon as the cupcakes come out of the oven, brush the tops of the cupcakes with additional Malibu rum. Cool completely before frosting. Yields 16 cupcakes.
In a chilled mixing bowl that has been chilled for 25 minutes, combine cream cheese and extracts. Add powdered sugar and rum. Add heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks have formed. Pipe on to cupcakes and garnish.

Could this recipe include pineapple in the batter as coconut is its BFF.
