1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C).

Preheating the oven is an important step in baking coconut cupcakes. To preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C), start by setting the oven to the desired temperature. Make sure to double check the temperature setting before proceeding.

2. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners.

To make delicious coconut cupcakes, first line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners. This will help keep the cupcakes from sticking to the tin and make them easier to remove.

Sprinkle some shredded coconut over the top of each cupcake and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
