Sea from Book of Yum is the creator and usually the host of the monthly event, Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger. This month I’m adopting Zoe from Z’s Cup of Tea. Zoe is a teenage foodie blogger. The goal of her blog is to “demonstrate and teach that gluten-free/dairy-free cooking and eating is for everyone, not just people with dietary sensitivities, allergies, or GI issues, and that it can be also easy – it doesn’t have to be hard.” She also has many specific carbohydrate diet recipes on her blog.
The other week when I saw Zoe’s Gluten-Free Wednesday link for flourless chocolate cupcakes, I knew I had to make them. I have made flourless chocolate cakes before, and while good, they would always sink in the middle. When you are talking about a 10 inch cake, it can be a pretty big depression in the cake. That’s why I loved Zoe’s idea of making cupcakes (okay, it was Martha’s idea, but I learned it from Zoe). I also love that she used honey instead of sugar in the recipe.
I followed her recipe exactly, except that I was out of paper cupcake liners and had to use foil ones, but I didn’t think that would matter. They were easy to make and turned out beautifully. They did sink a little in the middle as I expected, but also as I thought, it wasn’t a big deal in a little cupcake. The family enjoyed these, and I highly recommend you give them a try. And don’t forget to subscribe to Zoe’s blog while you’re there.
