These cupcakes will have a richer flavor if you toast the nuts before baking. Spread them in a single layer in a jelly-roll pan, and bake at 350° for 5 to 8 minutes. Check frequently, because they burn easily.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper baking cups.

Step 2

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring well. Whisk eggs with butter and orange zest in a separate large bowl. Stir in pineapple and bananas. Add egg mixture to flour mixture, stirring until well blended.

Step 3

Pour batter evenly into prepared cups. Bake 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cupcakes comes out clean. Cool in pans 5 minutes, and then place on wire rack to cool completely.

Step 4

Spread Cream Cheese Frosting over cupcakes. Sprinkle evenly with coconut flakes.
