Gluten Free Coconut Lime Cupcakes Recipe

This cupcake recipe is from when I first started blogging my gluten free meals and desserts. It is a tried and true combination that I love to make for friends when we’re hosting parties during the summer. The fluffy cake is so light and refreshing and is topped with my favorite, cream cheese frosting.

What you’ll need:

Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix: 1 box

Butter: ½ cup, softened

Vanilla extract: 2 teaspoons

Eggs: 3 (or egg white equivalent)

Coconut flakes: 1/3 cup

Lime Juice: 1/2 of a fresh lime

Cream cheese frosting

Lime Zest



Step 1: Follow Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix directions to make your cake batter base.

Step 2: Then, squeeze in lime juice and fold in your lime zest and coconut flakes.

Step 3: Next, fill your cupcake pan cups 2/3 of the way with cake batter.

Step 4: Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.

Step 5: Let cool completely.
