Malibu Rum & Bounty Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe

Lately I've had an obsession with adding alcohol to cupcakes, It would be very cute to have a "Cocktail & Cupcake Party" including alcohol in the cupcakes too. The other day I raided the alcohol shelf in the cupboard and found a bottle of Malibu, personally I can't stand Malibu, and I don't particularly like Bounty either (Although I LOVE the smell of Coconut and will buy any beauty product within a mile that smells of it) but anyhow, for the Coconut taste lovers I thought Malibu and Bounty would be perfect together.

This was the first time I'd actually attempted to make any cupcakes/cakes with alcohol in them (Bar the Xmas cake I get roped in to baking every year now) So I had to do a little bit of research to find out how much people seemed to be adding. I ended up putting in about 2 fl ounces in both the mix and the buttercream mix. Do not be put off by how crazily alcoholic your cake batter will taste, most of it will burn off when you bake them anyway! The following recipe makes 12 standard sized cupcakes.

Cupcake Recipe
4 oz Stork
4 oz Caster Sugar
4 oz Self Raising Flour
2 Eggs
2 fl oz Malibu
1/2 a shredded Bounty
A few drops of Vanilla extract
Depending on how chocolatey you like your cupcakes, it's really up to you, I usually sprinkle enough to cover the top surface of my cake mix.

Throw it all in a large mixing bowl and give it a good whizz around with whatever whisk/electric appliance you usually personally use for baking. Separate in to 12 cases. Bake at 150 degrees for 25 minutes.

8 oz Stork
8 oz Icing Sugar
2 fl oz Malibu
A few drops of Vanilla extract

Again throw all of your ingredients together and whizz it around for a couple of minutes until there are no lumps and it has a smooth consistency. Pipe on to cupcakes with a large star nozzle. Finish off with pieces of Bounty, and a drizzle of chocolate if you wish. Another great thing to add would be desiccated Coconut if you have any handy.

Hope you all enjoy making these as much as I did! I was told they were delicious.
