Banana Chocolate Cupcakes
Good 3.9/5
(8 ratings)

This Banana Chocolate Cupcake recipe makes 24 regular-sized cupcakes which is perfect for a large gathering or birthday party. The batter is a snap to make because you just stir the wet ingredients together in one bowl and the dry ingredients together in another bowl. Mix the two and you are done. The batter is quite thin so use an ice cream scoop or small ladle to fill the muffin cups. Now while the recipe calls for cocoa powder, it doesn't specify which kind, which means you can use either regular unsweetened or Dutch-processed. As always, keep in mind that the type and brand of cocoa powder you use will determine the flavor of the cupcakes, so use the best you can afford. The other ingredient in this batter to take note of, is that the fat is in liquid form (canola or corn oil). The reason I bring this up is because oil makes for a moist and tender cupcake that stores very well, with the added advantage that they can be refrigerated and still stay soft.

Lemon Berry Tartlets
Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

The trend of mini desserts is a healthy eater's salvation. When sweets are pre-portioned, it's harder to cheat. You can't say, "Well, I'll just have a small sliver" or "I'll just even out this side of the cake..."
These Lemon-Berry Tartlets scream summertime to me. I imagine eating them on a patio after a luncheon with my girlfriends while sipping iced mint tea and feeling the warm breeze. They're just so refreshingly clean on the tongue.
Lemon and raspberries pair well. Each has a sourness with hints of sweetness and an acidity. You could use blueberries or strawberries, but I just love this combination.
Phyllo dough is a secret weapon for the healthy baker--it even comes in whole wheat varieties. The paper-thin layers of dough are often painted in butter for pastries like baklava, but they'll serve as a low-calorie pie crust with minimal added fat. The dough itself is basically just flour and water.
The "curd" filling is basically a lemon pudding. You can serve it on scones or muffins, as a topping for ice cream or sorbet, or as a pie filling, as you see here.
