These incredibly simple coconut and lime cupcakes, which taste great either plain or with a frosting of your choice, let you enjoy sweet tropical flavor all year long.
Set the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees C).
Paper liners should be used in 36 cupcake cups.
In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, combine sugar and butter and beat until fluffy, about 10 minutes.
Add coconut extract and vanilla extract with the final egg as you beat in the eggs one at a time.
In a different bowl, mix 1 tablespoon flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and the nutmeg.
Buttermilk and lime juice are then thoroughly mixed into the egg mixture.
Coconut and lime zest are combined.
Using a large cookie scoop, add approximately 1/4 cup of batter to each of the prepared cupcake cups.
