Shhhhhh… It’s a surprise!
It’s a super secret virtual surprise party!
Happy 40th Birthday Regan!
I had the pleasure of meeting Regan at Blog Brulee this past September. This woman seriously does it all – Owner of Healthy Aperture, Recipe ReDux, RDs4Disclosure, & co-founder of Blog Brulee. She is a wonderful woman and puts so much hard work and dedication into all the work she does. She had truly opened so many doors for Registered Dietitian’s especially in the internet world.
Regan – You have inspired me in so many ways and I hope to be as accomplished as you are one day! Happy Birthday!
Now, back to these cupcakes.
Since it’s Regan birthday, this birthday party was inspired by her amazing Gluten Free desserts like her, SugarFree GlutenFree Lemon-Nut Sandies, Mulled Wine Raisin Bread, and Gluten-Free Classic Chocolate Pound Cake. So we were inspired to bring a gluten free treat to the party too!
I’ve experimented with coconut flour in the past to create GF treats. The one thing I noticed after a complete recipe fail, that coconut flour sucks up any moisture, so you have to make sure to have enough wet ingredients.
I am a total chocolate lover, so of course I made a chocolate on chocolate cupcake. This is perfect for when you are craving a chocolately treat, but don’t want to make a whole batch of something. And perfect for a special homemade dinner date night with a dessert just for 2!
Craving a chocolate cupcake, but don’t want to have a whole batch tempting you for the rest of the week. These Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes for 2 is the perfect solution.
