Do you know anyone who likes chocolate cupcakes?



Our youngest granddaughter, who is such a sweetheart, has always enjoyed chocolate cupcakes. This photograph of her was taken a few years ago, and it always makes me smile ๐Ÿ˜Š How she got so messy eating a delicious chocolate cake we didn't like to ask - but I remember it was a hot day - so I think the chocolate was quite soft! LOL! "Grandma have you got some wet-wipes please" 

But talking of chocolate cupcakes reminded me of Libby at Ditch the Carbs site keto/low carb recipe for them. She uses almond flour, they are naturally gluten-free, sugar-free, and with only 3g net carbs are perfect if you are diabetic, but can also be enjoyed by non-diabetics ๐Ÿ˜‹  
 

Keto chocolate cupcakes
110 g (1 stick) butter melted
6 tablespoons granulated sweetener of choice, or more, to your taste
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 eggs - medium
50 g (½ cup) cocoa powder unsweetened
200 g (2 cups) almond meal/flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons heavy (double) cream if necessary

Keto chocolate frosting
1 keto buttercream optional

Instructions
and lots more to read
can be seen here

You will find a variety of recipe ideas within this blog, and not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter. If you have any concerns about your health it is always advisable to consult your Doctor or health care team.

All the best Jan

I'd love to try this recipe. I made some one time but they came out heavy and dense. It's fun to have cupcakes...no matter your age!

She's so cute, my DIL just sent me a similar photo of my grandson eating chocolate ice cream, you are allowed to get messy when you eat any type of chocolate treat, those cup cakes look yummy.

Thank you for the recipe
Adorable photo!
Way to process cupcake by hand, I have icing first, the top, press the remainder together and bite off the rest.
