Pineapple & Coconut Gingerbread Cupcakes {Recipe}

November 25, 2014 0 By EngineerMommy

Gingerbread recipes are so popular during this time of year, and this recipe I’m going to share with you today for Pineapple & Coconut Gingerbread Cupcakes is so simple, so delicious and fairly healthy. I start this recipe with a store-bought gingerbread cookie mix, but instead of adding oil and eggs (as the box’s recipe dictates), I add crushed pineapple for moisture. I also add some shredded coconut to round out the tropical flavor. It really is a lovely, sweet cupcake that is a wonderful addition to any Holiday party.

Let’s get to the recipe now, shall we?
