Black Beauty Chocolate Cupcakes/Muffins – & Happy Birthday:)

IMG_0444Yups, it is my birthday:) But it’s not getting celebrated in a big way. Just with a cupcake or 2-3.   I spent my evening at the gym teaching a class, and then relaxing with my favorite show.

So back to the dish.  Black Beauty Chocolate cupcakes, they are to die for.  Here is the recipe for the frosting.

 

There is no eggs, or milk in this recipe, but there is mayonnaise. I wrinkled my nose a little when I realized that, but I was surprised. The cupcakes was so light, soft and fluffy.

Makes 12 cupcakes

2.1 oz (60 gr) cacao powder (100%)

1 cup (2.5 dl) boiling warm water

6  oz (170 gr) spelt flour

8 oz (225 gr) brown sugar

1/2 tsp baking soda (natron)

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup ( 1 dl)  mayonnaise ( contains eggs)
