Perfect for a special occasion and only 3.5g net carbs per cupcake.
• 6 Tbsp butter, melted
• 2 eggs
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• 1/4 cup almond milk
• 1/4 cup shredded zucchini, packed
• 1 cup almond flour
• 3 Tbsp coconut flour
• 1/4 cup granulated sugar substitute – I used Stevia
• 3 Tbsp cacao powder
• 2 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese, softened
• 3 Tbsp powdered sugar substitute
• ¼ cup espresso coffee
• 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
• 1 Tbsp cacao powder
• 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees ©
2. Combine the wet ingredients (butter, eggs, vanilla extract, almond milk, zucchini) in a magic bullet or blender and blend for 20-30 seconds or until smooth.
3. Combine the dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, cocao powder, salt, baking powder) in a medium bowl and stir until mixed and there are no lumps.
4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until the liquid is absorbed and a thick batter is formed.
5. Spoon the batter evenly into 8 cupcake liners or greased tins.
6. Bake at 180 degrees celcius for approx. 20 mins. Remove and cool before frosting.
1. Combine the softened Mascarpone cheese, sweetener, coffee extract, vanilla extract, and cacao powder in a small bowl and mix gently with a fork until smooth. (Don’t mix too aggressively or your Mascarpone will separate!)
2. In a large bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff.
3. Mix 1/3 of the whipped cream gently into your mascarpone mixture until smooth.
4. Fold (GENTLY) the Mascarpone mixture into the remaining whipped cream until all streaks of white are gone and the mixture is smooth but still fluffy.
5. Spread or pipe onto your cooled cupcakes.
6. Chill to store, but these are best served at room temperature.
