Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting

These cupcakes are amazingly good. Luke and I both LOVE cream cheese frosting, and I am a huge fan of coconut. These have a subtle coconut flavor and they almost taste like a spiced cake. They are easy and delicious, we have made them several times already! 

Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup coconut rum

Mix flour, soda, and salt.  In a separate bowl, cream brown sugar and butter until fluffy.  Add egg and beat well. Add buttermilk and flour mixture alternately while mixing.  Add rum and mix well. Pour into lined cupcake pan.  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

  • 1/2 stick butter, room temp.
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar

Welcome to Walker Whims

I love alliteration, don't you?
This is a blog that chronicles my life, but it will mostly end up being a blog about my cooking adventures. I have recently discovered that I have a passion for cooking and I love using it as a way to serve my friends and family. 
So I guess I'll start by introducing myself and my family.
Well I'm Sarah, a wife, pharmacy student, Christ-follower, cooking fiend.
Next is my wonderful, handsome, smart, funny husband Luke, who's also in pharmacy school with me. That's where we met. He loves being the guinea pig for new recipes and helps me in the kitchen a lot too!  We are happily married newlyweds :)
Here's a picture:
He's cool.

And then there's our baby, Abigail Moose, our Miniature American Eskimo pup.

I love her. She's the sweetest!
Okay so that's us. Hope you enjoy the blog!
