Coconut Raspberry Ice Cream Cupcakes

While I was at JP Licks the other day, I grabbed margarita sorbet for the coconut margarita ice cream cupcakes, but the red raspberry fat free frozen yogurt also caught my eye. Boy do I miss ice cream and frozen yogurt. I had a little taste and this stuff is amazing. I decided raspberry would also go well with coconut, so I took a pint of that home as well.

Again, I made the two varieties of cupcake/ice cream configurations. And again both were great. The frozen yogurt is soft, so it does drip down the cupcake. This is definitely one you want to eat with a spoon.

This is my last ice cream cupcake for now. I hope to make some more dairy free ones once the kitchen is back in working order. The one thing I’ve learned is that a stiff frosting works best. I’d say cream cheese frosting is best for ice cream cupcakes.

I am submitting these cupcakes into the blogging event hosted by Cupcake Project and Scoopalicious. Be sure to check back to vote for their reader’s choice cupcakes. Voting will be the first week in June.

    I definitely don’t make bundt cakes enough given those attributes 🙂 this looks absolutely wonderful and I can imagine so many ways to change it up!

      Oh yea, you could definitely add some spices (i’m thinking cardamom or cinnamon), some extracts or oils, citrus zest, fresh fruit… You could really adapt this recipe however you want.

    So I was just thinking I needed an easy bundt cake dessert to take along with a freezer meal I’m making for a new mom friend, and lo and behold, you post this. You just saved me an hour of searching through recipes (though now what will I do at work). I’m also excited to use the vanilla beans I bought and then never put in the vodka to make extract (hopefully they’re still usable).

    I do have a question in all my rambling. You said to grease the bundt cake pan with butter, and I usually have the Pam for Baking on-hand. Do you think that butter works better in a bundt pan than the spray? Occasionally I have a heavier cake like this stick to the pan, and I’m wondering if it’s because I didn’t grease with butter.

    • beantownbaker — April 24th, 2013 @ 1:52 pm

      I’m sure your vanilla beans would still be usable, although I do recommend making that vanilla extract some time. It’s definitely worth the (minimal) effort.

      I have made bundts using both butter or Pam for Baking. Using Pam is definitely easier, especially with all the curves in the bundt pan. Although 9 times out of 10, I use butter and spread it with my hands. It’s kind of fun. For this bundt, I used butter and it popped right out. Let me know how it goes if you use Pam.

    The the look of the frosting on the cake – bundt cakes are my go to when I need to make a cake for the exact reasons you say, nice and easy.

    • beantownbaker — April 24th, 2013 @ 1:53 pm

      The frosting tastes even better than it looks. Man I wish I had a piece of this guy today…

    Your cake looks stunning, I love the look of the texture and the vanilla bean glaze. You’re making me sad I don’t have bundt pan!

    • beantownbaker — April 24th, 2013 @ 1:54 pm

      You should definitely get one! A friend of mine gave me my pan almost two years ago for my birthday and I had to make room for it in our tiny Boston kitchen. It was worth the effort. Now that I have a bigger kitchen, space isn’t an issue, but I’m still so glad I have that pan.

    I’ve been looking for a bundt cake recipe recently and my husband has been asking for (another) pound cake. THANK YOU!

    Yesterday I found vanilla beans for CHEAP at the grocery store–but they refused to let me buy them because they were expired!! It was the saddest day. This bundt looks amazing. My only tangle with a bundt cake was when I tried to do the Pinterest thing where you put two together to make a pumpkin… frosting disaster. Oh well.

    • beantownbaker — April 24th, 2013 @ 1:55 pm

      WHAT?!? I’ve never heard of that. Oh I’ve seen that where you put two together to make a pumpkin. Never tried it myself though…

    I understand your love for bundt cakes! i don’t own one and I’m so envious of all the wonderful looking bundt cakes out there. I pin all the recipes, yet I still haven’t bought myself a pan. That clearly needs to change soon!

    • beantownbaker — April 25th, 2013 @ 7:48 am

      You should definitely get one! I got mine from a friend for my bday almost two years ago and I’m so happy she got it for me 🙂 A lot of people have commented that they don’t have a bundt pan. Maybe I should do a giveaway on here for one…

    Update: I made this for my new mom friend and it turned out great. I used Pam on the bundt pan and the cake slid right out and was beautifully golden. Granted I sprayed GENEROUSLY, so that may have helped. The vanilla beans were also amazing in the glaze and I can’t wait to use them in more recipes!

    • beantownbaker — May 2nd, 2013 @ 9:03 am

      Glad to hear it worked out for you!
