The base recipe for the cupcakes comes from the Comfy Belly site which is one of my favourite for recipes, especially for cupcakes with coconut flour. I had an afternoon of trying many recipes for coconut flour cupcakes and Comfy Belly wins hands down…no contest really..
One batch (from another site I hasten to mention) even went into the bin which must have been a first for this household..(I have still not got used to cooking with Stevia!)…. I added cherries and a few chunks of chocolate and yum! Almost a black forest gateau in a cupcake….squirt with some cream and you have a purring Diva……well, pass me a glass of cherry vokda to compliment these bad boys and I call that one hell of a breakfast! Or a midday meeting…..Or a nice evening in with the cats…so versatile…
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 tspn salt
1/4 tspn baking soda
1/2 cup Agave syrup
50g dark chocolate, broken into small chunks
50g cherries, pitted
- Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
- Combine all the dry ingredients and mix well.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and blend well (I use a hand blender). You need a smooth mixture with no lumps.
- Fill cupcake cases to 3/4 full, press in a couple of cherry and chocolate pieces.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
- Eat and enjoy!
