A dessert as sinful as the name implies!

Ingredients

Ingredients for Batter:

1
(14-ounce) can unsweetened coconut milk
1
vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4
cup ground macadamia nuts
2-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
3/4
cup butter, softened
3
eggs
1
cup flaked coconut, lightly toasted

Ingredients for Vanilla-Coconut Frosting:

1
cup butter, softened
1/3
cup of reserved reduced coconut milk
Remaining vanilla seeds
1/8
teaspoon salt
2-1/2 cups powdered sugar

Directions

  • 1 Directions for Batter:
  • 2 In a medium saucepan bring coconut milk just to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 to 30 minutes or until milk is reduced to 1-1/3 cups; cool. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F. Line eighteen 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with paper liners; set aside. Using the tip of a small sharp knife, scrape out seeds from vanilla bean, set aside.
  • 3 In a small bowl stir together flour, ground nuts, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar. Beat on medium to high speed for 1 minute, scraping side of bowl occasionally.
  • 4 Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in half of the vanilla seed; reserve other half for frosting. Alternately add flour mixture and 1 cup of the reduced coconut milk (reserve rest of coconut milk for frosting) to butter mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined.
  • 5 Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about three-fourths full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool in muffin cups on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups. Cool completely on racks.
  • 6 Pipe or spread Vanilla-Coconut Frosting on tops of cupcakes. Sprinkle with toasted coconut.
  • 7 Directions for Vanilla-Coconut Frosting:
  • 8 In a large bowl beat 1 cup softened butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed or 30 seconds. Beat in the remaining 1/3 cup reduced coconut milk, the remaining vanilla seeds, and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Gradually add 2-1/2 cups powdered sugar, beating until fluffy.
