Today she has sent us a recipe for Black Forest Cupcakes as part of our Scanpan Baking Competition.

  • 1.5 cups wholemeal plain flour
  • 1/4 cup cacao
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 natural yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup dark choc chips (melted)

  • Dash of water
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • Chocolate Frosting:
  • 1 1/2 avocadoes, peeled and de-seeded
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp cacao


  • Preheat oven to 180C and line a muffin tray with cupcake cases.
  • Mix all the cupcake ingredients (except melted choc chips) together, once all mixed then mix through the melted choc chips.
  • Spoon the batter into the cupcake cases and bake for 10-15 min.
  • Set aside to cool
  • To make the frosting, mix all ingredients with a food processor or blender until well combined and place in the fridge to set.
  • To make the cherry sauce, put cherries, maple syrup and water in a small saucepan and bring to the boil.
  • Mash cherries with a fork and then add the chia seeds, let the sauce thicken. Once thickened, empty into a container and once cooled put in the fridge to set.
