Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes (Small Batch Cupcakes for Spring)

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

Growing up in Ireland, Easter was a big holiday for us filled with copious amounts of chocolate eggs to beat the band. I can’t imagine an Easter celebration without a chocolate dessert on the table.

These Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes tastes like a Brownie but they look like a Cake; it’s the best of both worlds! Also, because they are flourless they would also make a fantastic Passover Dessert as well as an Easter dessert. 2 birds 1 stone. BOOM!

This is my favorite, insanely good Flourless Chocolate Cake recipe that I modified  to make a small batch that yields 4 Big & Bold cupcakes. My cupcake recipes are the perfect size to fit in a toaster oven however they can also be made in a regular oven too.

Toaster ovens are fantastic pieces of kitchen equipment and are great for baking. Often they are used in shared living spaces, dorms or by people with limited kitchens but I think they are great for everyone. The timing and temperature for your toaster oven will be the same as your regular oven.

Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup (2oz/50g) chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup (2oz/55g) butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup (3oz/80g) packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/3 cup (1oz/ 40g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Chocolate Fudge Frosting Recipe
  • ½ cup (120g/4oz) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups (6oz/170g) powdered sugar, sifted
  • cup (30g/1oz) cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons whole milk
  • Coconut , shredded and toasted
  • Chocolate eggs
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350oF/180oC.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the butter and chocolate and melt in 30 second increments until the butter and chocolate have melted.
  3. Whisk in the brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Sift the cocoa powder and salt into the mixture, and mix until just combined.
  5. Fill each cupcake liner ⅔ full.
  6. Bake until the tops are set, about 15 minutes. Take care not to over bake as they will not be as fudgy.
  7. Let fully cool before frosting.
  8. To make the frosting: Beat softened butter on medium speed with an electric or stand mixer. Beat for 3 minutes until light and creamy. Add the sugar while the mixer running. Increase to high speed and continue beating until the buttercream is light and fluffy. Add in the milk, cocoa powder and vanilla and whip in.
  9. To Decorate: Put your buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a large round nozzle and pipe around the top of the cupcakes. Scatter toasted coconut in the middle for the nest and top with your chocolate eggs.
  10. Once decorated store the cupcakes in the fridge for up to 4 days. Let them reach room temperature before eating.
Recipe Notes

If you don’t have a small cupcake tray use silicone cupcake liners

Eggs: Replace the egg with the same amount of apple sauce/puree or banana
