Bah! Who said the NSD is hard? Not when you can eat these!
WHITE CHOCOLATE COCONUT FLOUR CUPCAKES
60g (2 ounces) white cooking chocolate (I used Nestle Milky Bar)
3/4 cup (150g) butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
6 beaten eggs
3/4 cup sifted coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder (make your own starch free)
Melt chocolate and butter together either in the microwave or in a saucepan over low heat.
Mix in sugar, beaten eggs and vanilla.
Stir in remaining ingredients then mix with electric beaters to get rid of any lumps.
Spoon into baking cups in a standard 12 muffin tray.
Bake at 350 degrees F (180 C) for 15-20 minutes or until the cupcakes sping back when lightly pressed.
Allow to cool completely before icing/frosting.
1 cup icing sugar (powdered sugar)
1/2 teaspoon softened butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
approx 1-2 tablespoons hot water
A few drops of food coloring
Sift icing sugar into bowl. Add butter and vanilla. Add sufficient water to mix to a spreadable consistency. Add your coloring.
I haven't been able to find starch free icing sugar here in NZ. They always add a starch to make it free flowing. So I made my own! Just blitzed white sugar in my electric coffee grinder but apparently you can use a food processor too.
Add chocolate sprinkles or other decorations of your choice.
