Combine both ingredients in large bowl.

Mix on medium speed with electric mixer.

Pour into lined cupcake tins about 2/3 full.

Bake in accordance with cake mix directions or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Set aside to cool.


Pineapple Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 8 ounce Philadelphia 1/3 less fat cream cheese.
  • 20 ounce can crushed pineapple in pineapple juice, completely drained of any liquid.
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes.
  • 1/4 cup sugar.


Combine cream cheese, crushed pineapple, sugar and coconut flakes in a medium bowl and mix with a hand mixer until combined well.

Spread on cooled cupcakes and refrigerate until ready to eat.
