Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes, depending on size of cupcake.
This makes approximately 12 large cupcakes.
TOASTED COCONUT INSTRUCTIONS
Lower heat to 350. Lay out coconut on shallow baking pan. Bake for 5 -10 minutes, checking at 5. If you want it really brown and crunchy, bake longer, but keep checking so it doesn't burn.

BAKING IN JARS
This recipe rises high. I ended up with jars of cake filled to the brim, so I turned them over and they fell right out. I cut them in half and put them back in the jars. Do not fill more than 1/4 of the way of the jar. If you freeze your jar cakes like I like to do, leave an inch between the cake and the lid.
