Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

While these chocolate cupcakes make the perfect Valentine’s Day treat, we think they are pretty great any day of the year.  The texture and taste are a mash-up between a chocolate cake and a chocolate brownie – rich and decadent: dark cocoa powder and pomegranate juice pack tons of flavor into these little cakes and keep us coming back for more.

The Perfect Dessert – For 2!


My daughter and I recently enjoyed a few days in New York City. As I took her around to all of my favorite spots, I realized just how many of my favorite romantic movies had been filmed there. From Sleepless in Seattle, Serendipity to my personal favorite, Kate & Leopold. I almost wish we had binge watched them before we left.

I thought it only fitting to share with you a super easy, yet romantic dessert. Perfect for sharing with your special someone this Valentine’s Day.

I used my Coffee Simple Syrup (be sure to subscribe to gain access to this bonus post) as my sweetener in the brownie as well as to sweeten and flavor my whipped cream. I also used the Grain & Spice Mill attachment to grind my oats into fresh oat flour. Normally I would say that the Grain Mill Attachment won’t grind grain fine enough for baking flour but oats are such a soft grain that on the finest setting, the flour produced is perfect for this recipe.

This gooey brownie topped with fresh strawberries and a coffee whipped cream will be the perfect dessert to share with someone special.

My tip for making these as an individual treat for kids:

Double the recipe and mix everything together in the double beater bowl with the single wire whips. Pour batter into 4 small tea or coffee cups. Microwave for about 1 minute each. Top as directed in the recipe below.

Position the Ankarsrum base on its side and attach the Grain Mill Attachment. Click HERE to view a short instructional video.

Place mug under the attachment. Set coarseness setting to as fine as it will go. Pour oats into the hopper and turn the machine on. Turn speed up to about 3 o’clock. Flour will dispense right into the mug. Once all of the flour comes through, turn machine off and add a pinch of salt to the mug. Stir with a fork until completely combined. Place in the microwave and cook for 1 minute and 30 seconds.

While the brownie is cooking, remove the grain mill attachment and turn the Ankarsrum base right side up. Attach the Double Beater Bowl with the balloon whisks. Place heavy cream and coffee syrup into the mixing bowl. Turn the machine on, starting on the slowest speed and slowly increasing the speed to high. Watch carefully to make sure you do not overwhip the cream. Whip until a soft peak is formed.

Remove brownie from the microwave and top with sliced strawberries and whipped cream. May add additional chocolate chips or strawberries for garnish.

Chocolate! – The Food Of Love: Chocolate Donuts

This month we will be dedicating our posts to one of my favorite foods……CHOCOLATE! Of course, being that we are still in the early part of a new year, there are some…how should we say this….”goals” (I don’t like the word resolution) which many of us have put into place. Work out more, eat healthy, be more positive..etc. But let’s all be honest, there are days when you just need something sweet. The recipe I will be sharing with you today is, I think, a good mix of sweet cravings and healthy. As always, I’ve included the super healthy version using whole wheat flour and honey in place of white flour and white sugar with a really healthy twist on cream cheese icing. Don’t worry, I’ve included the decadent cream cheese icing version as well.
