  • Primal Birthday Cupcakes!



    So it is my very good friend Paul's birthday today, he introduced me to the primal lifestyle so I wanted to make him a Primal birthday treat.


    After a few trials this is what worked.. I think they turned out pretty well..cakey and not to sweet... thoughts and comments are greatly appreciated!


    I started with this recipe from mercola.com.


    http://www.mercola.com/products/coconut_flour.htm


    I used 1 1/2 cups of Erythritol instead of Stevia.


    The batter yielded about 20 cupcakes instead of a sheet cake. Baked for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees until an inserted knife came out clean.


    I made two different kinds of Frosting:


    The first was a chocolate buttercream:


    1 stick of organic salted butter

    1/2 cup Stevia extract

    2 TBS Green & Blacks Organic Dark Cocoa Powder

    approx 1 TBS heavy whipping cream


    Mix together, a hand or stand mixer will work best. Cream level will very, I added a little at a time until the frosting was creamy. Spread on cooled cupcakes, I sprinkled a little cocoa powder on top.


    The second was sort of a chocolate ganache:


    1 cup Dark chocolate chips ( 72% cacao)

    Heavy Cream


    Heat cream on low heat in saucepan, add chocolate and wisk until smooth. Turn off heat and dip cooled cupcakes into chocolate mixture. I sprinkled some with unsweetened coconut (left over from making primal energy bars


    Refrigerate cupcakes if not eating right away.





    Happy Birthday to Paul!! My Best Primal Buddy

      Oh that sounds good. www.healthyindulgences.blogspot.com also has some great stuff for holidays and birthdays when it is "normal" to eat cake. And ice cream (coconut milk of course).
