Grain Free Egg Free Chocolate Birthday Cake
As a special treat I made egg free grain free dark chocolate cupcakes. They turned out amazing if I do say so myself. So I thought I would share the recipee.
1/2 cup unsweetened coco powder (I used Ghirardelli)
2 ounces dark chocolate (I used chocolove)
2 tbsp butter
1 cup blanched almond flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 very ripe banana
1/2 cup sour cream
Over a double boiler (a nice large glass bowl over a pot of boiling water) melt butter, coco powder and dark chocolate together mixing constantly with a whisk or hand mixer.
Take bowl off heat and mix in all other ingredients - just dump it all in there, go for it! It will all come together just fine!
Scoop batter into lined cupcake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 min
These are very rich and dark so we decided to top them with whipped cream. I think a heavy frosting would be just too much. Maybe a dusting of powdered sugar might be nice. Keep it simple.
My little smarty of a boy signed his first two sign combo after eating his birthday cupcake. ALL DONE + HELP = "I'm done! Help me out of this high chair!" Haha. It was really cute.
