Paleo Death By Chocolate Cupcakes

There is a serious shortage of cupcake recipes on this blog. By serious..I mean like I don't even think I have more than 1.  Why?? I don't know. I always forget about them.  My head is always in the clouds dreaming up how to do the really complicated recipes..like croissants. I often forget about the classic recipes that people love, like these Paleo Death By Chocolate Cupcakes.

I've had it on my to do list for quite awhile to get up a chocolate cupcake recipe.

and THEN I saw that a friend of mine had a birthday TODAY. That friend is someone that you probably love and adore too. If you don't yet know her..you will start following her after today.

This friend..is HILARIOUS. She makes me laugh every single time I read one of her posts. She's as authentic as they come and a shining example of what the paleo diet is all about.  I feel lucky to know her!

Happy Birthday Juli!!!

 Everyone head over to Paleomg.com today and send her some birthday love...and maybe some Paleo Death By Chocolate Cupcakes!

Juli loves chocolate, so a paleo death by chocolate cupcake seemed appropriate.  I used the frosting recipe from my Club Angell Fudge Rounds  to top off these already extremely indulgent cupcakes.  The end result is a very rich, soft cupcake with layers and layers and layers of chocolate. SO GOOD!

Thanks Juli for giving me an excuse to stuff my face with chocolate! <3

Chocolate Frosting

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 TBSP Milk (dairy or nondairy)
  • 2 TBSP Room Temperature Butter (dairy or nondairy)
  • 2 TBSP Shortening
  • 2 TBSP Cocoa Powder

Instructions

  1. In a stand mixer, combine all ingredients and mix until fluffy.

Notes

To make this frosting refined sugar free- run some coconut palm sugar through a coffee grinder or put it in a high powered blender until it becomes a powder! Mix it with about a 1/2 a teaspoon of starch (potato, tapioca or arrowroot) and then use it in place of the powdered sugar in the recipe!

    My kids woke up this morning and asked for chockit coop-cakes. And coconut cookies. This whole Easter business has seriously fired up their sweet tooths (we don't eat much sugar or sweets) so I think I will whip these up today and then we will take a break off all things sugary for awhile!

    Do you think if I make it with almond milk it would alter the flavor?

    What a nice friend you are! I know she made cupcakes for herself too but I am sure she is so happy to have a friend like you :) Woohoo...yummy chocolate!

    So excited to see an allergy-friendly cupcake recipe! They are definitely hard to make and not easy to come by. These looks so delicious!

    These are so AMAZING!!! I made these to provide a gluten free and dairy free dessert for our high school senior banquet. I made a cooked vanilla bean frosting and it was a perfect match. I would love to feature this recipe on my blog with your permission and I would provide a link and full credit to you. Thank you for sharing these!

    Just made these cupcakes. They go together easily & are GREAT!! My husband wants to split this batch of little cakes for dinner (and I'm the one with the food allergies). Thanx so much!!

    Can the potato starch be substituted with tapioca starch? These look incredible!
