Coconut Cup Cakes (Eggless)

This is the second recipe for the day 2 which I have again adopted from Gayathri's cookspot. Long back my brother sent me a packet of coconut sugar from Australia. From that time I was searching for the recipes with coconut sugar. But not found much recipes Then I replaced the normal sugar with coconut sugar and tried some recipes. Not much difference in the flavor but the color will turn in to little dark. You can add any chopped dry fruits to this recipe but I don't want to add, because the coconut flavor will disappear that's my feeling...
