Eggless, Butterless, Milkless Chocolate Cupcakes

…with dark chocolate frosting!  …For when you’re out of egg, butter, and milk. :-b

They get a light crust on the outside and are soft in the center.  I cut the sugars down in half as a matter of preference.  The recipe is for cake, but halving the recipe yields a dozen cupcakes…350F for 15 minutes (my oven his hyperactive though).  Definitely spray the muffin tin with oil or use cupcake liners to avoid potential sticking.

Flourless Brownies with Brown Butter Frosting

Instead of flour, these are made with cooked quinoa.

Frosting is just 1/4 cup butter melted and browned, cooled for a few minutes in a separate bowl, then added 1 cup of powdered sugar… mixed well.  It will smooth out the longer you mix it!  The “sprinkles” are from a failed caramel glaze I originally made for these. 🙂
