I love this recipe and have been making it for years. Originally from Martha Stewart, I have made minor tweaks by substituting coconut sugar for the white sugar originally called for and adding a bit of vanilla and cinnamon for added flavor. Otherwise this is her recipe, ingredients and directions. Rich, chocolaty and, because it is flourless, rich, dense and light at the same time.
I love pairing dark chocolate with fresh, in-season raspberries. Macerating the raspberries in Chambord liqueur takes it to another level. This is the perfect dessert to pack for a summer picnic, a day at the beach, a potluck or special birthday. Happy Birthday my friends!
Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes with Chambord Raspberries
(from Martha Stewart)
3/4 stick unsalted butter
8 oz bittersweet chocolate, preferably Scharffen Berger
1/2 tsp pure vanilla
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
6 large eggs, separated, room temperature
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 pint raspberries
1/4 cup Chambord liqueur
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners. Melt butter and chocolate in a large heatproof bowl set over (not in) a pan of simmering water. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Stir to combine, then remove bowl from heat and let cool slightly. Whisk in egg yolks.
With an electric mixer on medium speed, whisk egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add coconut sugar, beating until peaks are stiff and glossy but not dry (do not overbeat). Whisk one quarter of the beaten egg whites into chocolate mixture to lighten; gently fold mixture into remaining whites.
Divide batter evenly among lined cups, filling each three-quarters full. Bake, rotating tins halfway through, until cupcakes are just set in centers, about 25 minutes. Transfer tins to wire racks to cool completely before removing cupcakes (their centers will sink). Cupcakes are best eaten the same day they are baked.
Combine raspberries and Chambord in small bowl. Allow to sit at least 1 hour. (up to 24 hours refrigerated) Serve alongside cupcakes.
