Chocolate Cupcakes

Quick and easy recipe for Halloween Party. Moist, dense and truly delicious chocolate cupcakes, that will amaze everyone. I shared them with few of my friends (none of them on low carb diet) and everyone absolutely loved them. I took the recipe from BBC website and just swapped normal flour for almond and soy flour. I didn’t expect it would work so well!
Ingredients (for 6 large cupcakes):
  • 60 g ground almond
  • 40 g soy flour
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa
  • 100 g Xylitol
  • 1 egg
  • 120 ml full fat milk
  • 40 g unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract

For topping:
  • 125 g mascarpone cheese
  • 150 ml whipping cream
  • 1 ½ tbsp. xylitol

Preparation:
  • Preheat oven to 170 C and prepare 6 muffin cases (if you use smaller, cupcake cases you will need around 10 – 12)
  • Place the flour ,cocoa powder, xylitol, baking powder, salt and butter and using electric mixer beat on a slow speed until you get a sandy consistency and everything is combined.
  • Whisk the milk, egg and vanilla extract in a jug and slowly pour into the flour mixture. Beat to combine it for couple of minutes.
  • Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until two-thirds full and bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the sponge bounces back when touched. A skewer inserted in the center should come out clean. Set aside to cool down.
  • For the topping whip the cream with xylitol. Add mascarpone cheese and combine together. Using piping bag decorate the cupcakes. You can use some pomegranate for decoration
