Clean Chocolate Sour Cream Cupcakes

Submitted by: BANANAFISH711

Introduction

This recipe is adapted from the one which appears in a recent issue of Clean Eating magazine.

I have made several changes to the original to lower the caloric content as well as sweeten the glaze slightly.

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
    1 1/4 cup evaporated cane juice (labeled as sucanat), divided
    1 cup light sour cream
    1/3 cup and 2 tsp. unsweetened plain, chocolate, or vanilla almond milk,, divided
    1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
    1 whole egg and 2 egg whites
    1 tbsp. olive oil
    1/4 tsp. kosher salt
    1/4 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. vanilla
    1/2 tsp. light agave nectar
    1 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate

Directions

*In a medium sized bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, salt, and 1 cup of the sucanat.
*In another bowl, whisk together the 1/3 cup milk, sour cream, whole egg, and vanilla. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients to it, and mix well with a rubber spatula.
*In a clean, cold bowl, whip the egg whites until foamy, slowly add the remaining 1/4 cup sucanat, and beat until medium-stiff peaks are reached.
*In 3 additions, fold the egg whites quickly but assertively into the batter. Divide between 12 muffin cups and bake for 45 minutes.
*Once cupcakes are completely cool, prepare the glaze by melting the baking chocolate with agave and remaining 2 tsp. of milk over low heat. Spread a thin layer on each cake and enjoy!

    Sooo good! They are very moist and chocolatey. I love that they aren't all dry. I did my own frosting instead of the melted chocolate on top so they would last in the frdge better. YUM! - 2/19/10

    I'm so glad that you enjoyed them. Another great topping is a little bit of light cream cheese whipped with 1-2 tbsp. of raw honey and a dash of vanilla or almond extract.
