If you want to see me salivate in a restaurant over the dessert menu then make sure that there is a chocolate and raspberry option.   There is something about this flavour combination which makes my taste buds dance with pleasure.  Almost a sexy salsa.    So, as I was baking a batch of chocolate cupcake it only seemed natural to me to add a raspberry topping.

  1. 1/4 cup (28g) coconut flour
  2. 1/4 cup (56g) butter, melted
  3. 1/4 cup (56g) erythritol (or sugar substitute of your choice)
  4. 1/4 cup (22g) cocoa powder

  6. 2 tblspns water
  7. 3 eggs

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C/400F degrees.
  2. Blend together the butter, eggs, erythritol and coconut milk.

  4. Pour into cupcake cups or a greased muffin tray.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes and allow to cool.
  6. Blend the topping ingredients until smooth. I used a hand blender but feel free to do an upper arm workout and try it with a fork/spoon!

  8. Eat and enjoy!

    I hear you and I dance with you! First, I am curious about the erythritol – I have a bag, never used it, afraid of bad after taste. Bought in an impulse, now I stare at it and feel guilty… (sigh)

    Now, if you allow me to share a link with you, you MUST make these… they are spectacular! https://bewitchingkitchen.com/2015/09/10/raspberry-bittersweet-chocolate-chunk-brownies/

      I love the image of us dancing around a plate of chocolate and raspberry goodies! Your brownies look devine! I will have to make a version of these with gluten free flour! I hear you about the impulse food purchase..I have a packet of breadfruit flour in my cupboard gathering dust..! Fancy a swap? Erythritol is very much like sugar..have a play with it! Perhaps another batch of brownies?
