SINGLE LADY CUPCAKE
The bottom of the cupcake - the chips drop to the bottom making it seem as if there is a fudgy frosting surprise on the bottom of the cupcake as well as frosting on top!
SINGLE LADY CUPCAKE
A cupcake in a jiffy! Sometimes one doesn’t want a dozen cupcakes sitting around to tempt one but the craving is strong and you can satisfy it quickly and relatively safely with this super easy recipe. I made one, frosted it and tasted it, liked it and made another and invited hubby to tea - okay coffee for him. LOL We had a tea/coffee date which we often do on our mountain in the jungle and sometimes we have a Miller Lite date. I don't like diet soda but I do like Miller Lite. I like champagne but cannot stand wine. It's funny when I go places, people usually offer me wine or a cocktail and are surprised when I ask for beer instead. Haha!! Why can't a lady enjoy a beer without seeming unlady-like? Truth be known I hardly drank anything in Canada during those 30 years that we lived in the cold, white North, but I find nowadays the beer relaxes me better than anything else will..
3 tbsp Gluten-Free Bake Mix, (45 mL)
1/4 tsp baking powder (1 mL)
1/8 tsp salt (0.5 mL)
1 egg yolk
Liquid sucralose to equal 2 tbsp (30 mL)
granular sweetener equivalent OR your sweetener
1 tbsp butter, melted (15 mL)
1 tbsp heavy cream (15 mL)
1 tbsp granulated erythritol , OR equiv. in sweetener packets (for coffee) (15 mL)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract (1 mL)
1 tbsp sugar-free chocolate chips, optional (15 mL)
In cereal bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix, page___, baking powder and salt. In another cereal bowl, combine egg yolk, liquid sucralose, OR granular sweetener equivalent, butter, heavy cream, erythritol and vanilla extract. Whisk with a fork to combine well. Add dry ingredients and whisk well to combine. Stir in chocolate chips. Using a spatula, scrape into a greased ramekin and microwave on high power 1 minute. Invert ramekin to remove cupcake. Allow to cool 1 minute and frost with approximately one quarter to one sixth of the Better than Betty Frosting. Serve immediately.
Helpful Hints: If using the chocolate chips, they will sink to the bottom of the cupcake, which is almost like having a frosted bottom and top to the cupcake. My microwave oven is 1200 Watts. You may need to cook yours a little less or a little longer depending on the wattage of your microwave oven.
