Chocolate Cupcakes

So this is my standby when we are going to someone else’s birthday party (I hate to see my girl have to watch others eat birthday cake and not have any to eat herself).  This recipe is quick, easy, and doesn’t make too much.

Chocolate Cupcakes

132g all-purpose grain-free flour mix

½ cup beet sugar

3 Tbsp cocoa

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp crm of tartar

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp xanthan gum

2/3 cup water (lukewarm)

1 egg

½ tsp cider vinegar

¼ cup canola oil

½ tsp vanilla

Separate egg and beat white until stiff.  Combine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.  Add water, egg yolk, vinegar, oil, and vanilla.  Beat on high with electric mixer for 3 ½ minutes.  Fold in egg whites.  Fill 10 muffin cups and bake at 350oF for 23 minutes.

For frosting such a small number of cupcakes, I usually just melt a bit of coconut oil and pure almond butter then mix in some powdered sugar and cocoa powder.  Once it cools, it spreads well.
