House-shaped cupcakes of low-carb Devils food cake with powdered Kidsweet™

Devil's Food Cupcakes

The base recipe makes microwavable cupcakes. This can be turned into a Chocolate Lava Cake recipe by quadrupling the milk (non-dairy or regular) and cooking in a pressure cooker.

Calories

Ingredients
  

  • 2 eggs
  • 4 T olive oil
  • 4 T Kidsweet™ available at https://kidsweet.com/shop/
  • 2 T Almond Milk
  • 4 T almond meal or flour
  • 4 T coconut flour
  • 4 T powdered Cocoa
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder

Instructions
 

  • - Mix all ingredients together completely.
  • - Put about 1/4 cup into a mug or into each section of a silicone muffin tray. Leave room for it to rise to double the height, though it will sink back down a bit as it cools.
  • - Microwave for one minute.
  • - You can top the cupcakes with Kidsweet™-sweetened whipped cream or frosting, or sifted powdered Kidsweet™ (available soon).
  • - Note--when using a tray for mini-muffins, as was done for the cupcakes pictured, we just used the outer four slots. The middle two didn't cook as fast as the outer ones in the microwave.
  • - Makes about 4 mug cakes, depending on the amount used for each. This recipe can be easily cut in half or doubled.
  • - Variation--to make a Kidsweet™ Lava Cake, use four times as much (non-dairy) milk. Use Pyrex ramekins, ideally, or a thick microwavable mug, and cook in an 'Instant Pot' for 6 minutes, or a bit more if you don't want it as runny. (Other types of pressure cookers haven't been tested yet.)

Notes

- The Kidsweet™ test kitchen is gleefully working on further variations to this base recipe -- contact us if you come up with your own!

Notes

The cocoa provides modest amounts of vitamin E, an antioxidant, plus vitamin K, choline, selenium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, and iron. It's a good source of insoluble fiber, and the antioxidents called flavonoids. If you can get cacao, a cold-pressed, raw form of cocoa, it has an even higher antioxidant content.
