Chocolate-Infused Cupcakes - Gluten Free 2017

Chocolate-Infused Cupcakes - Gluten Free 2017

I love chocolate cupcakes/muffins.  Mine always are muffins, because I like the heavier ones. Light and airy isn’t for me.

I am looking at the ingredients I use more now than before, because I need to limit carbs.  But I am not giving sweets up entirely, so I will make the best ones that I can. Although the coloring is different, but the chocolate taste is definitely noticed.

SCHARFFEN BERGER  70%  to 82% Cacao Baking bars for baking are my preference over  chips. It’s that intense chocolate taste that I love.

A time saver is to mix brown sugar with regular cane and coconut sugar in equal parts to keep either from clumping.  It actually eliminates the need to measure when making cookies or cupcakes.
