Pina Colada Cupcakes

Pina Colada Cupcakes

Pineapple, coconut and rum create a tropical paradise of flavor in frosted easy-mix cupcakes.



  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F (350 degrees F for dark or nonstick pan). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
  2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, oil, water, 1 teaspoon rum extract, the pineapple and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  3. Bake for 14 to 19 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  5. Stir coconut extract and 1 teaspoon rum extract into frosting. Spread frosting on cupcakes. Dip tops of frosted cupcakes in coconut.
  6. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
