A gorgeous addition to any Easter Table….Andrew decks out Ina Garten’s Coconut Cupcakes and Chewing the Fat celebrates our One Millionth reader!

Coconut Cupcakes that Andrew eggified for Easter!
 

  In the run-up to Easter, we’ve had snow, sun and cold temperatures earlier this week that feel more like winter than spring. It’s warmed up at last and here’s how we celebrated. And, after Andrew added jelly beans, they clearly make for an Easter filled with color.  We’re also celebrating what we consider to be quite an achievement.  Someone reading this will be the 1,500,000th reader of Chewing the Fat! That’s right 1.5 Million people have read Chewing the Fat. Thank you so much and I look forward to keep entertaining you and feeding you delicious things to eat.  So let’s celebrate with these coconut-lovers cupcakes. For those who observe Lent, it’s time for a little indulgence.  Andrew made this Ina Garten recipe for an Easter party last year and they were a huge hit.  But you must love coconut:  There’s coconut in the cake and coconut on top.  And I think you’ll agree, he’s really got the recipe down pat —they look just like their picture.   So without further ado, here’s the recipe:

  • Hi Monte!
    Oh my goodness, Andrew did a fantabulous job on those Coconut Cupcakes! They look so festive and no, the white coconut does not remind me of the s**w word, lol…What a Spring we have had here in PA too. We can only hope Mother Nature will be kind to us and perhaps let Summer last a bit longer this year. Fingers crossed:)

    I haven't decided what I'm doing for Easter yet but those cupcakes look so delicious, who says they are only for Easter:) Thank you so much for sharing, Monte. Wishing You and Yours a Joyous and Happy Easter. Louise

  • Omg! First the pear cake now these! Do you and Andrew have rooms for rent?
    Saw this and thought of you! Wish I planned France instead of brunch at Topping Rose!
    Happy Easter!

    The port town of Bayonne in France's Basque region is known for its colorful food and culture. And since 1464, its residents have celebrated the remarkable, local cured ham at the springtime Ham Fair.
