I’m starting a new series called “I Suck At Making Desserts”!

Cooking regular food has come easy to me since I was young, but for some reason I have ALWAYS sucked at making dessert recipes, whether it is a dessert recipe that requires baking or a non-baked recipe (like making lemon curd or something).  I think one of the reasons is because cooking does not require exact measurements, but most dessert recipes, especially baked recipes like cakes and cookies and dough, require exact measurements.  If you get one measurement wrong in a homemade cake recipe it could ruin everything.  And the worst part is, you won’t know the cake is ruined until it’s finished!  At least with cooking I can taste my food throughout the process and adjust things to produce a great final product.

So with this series I feel like If I can make this recipe, you definitely can because no one sucks at making dessert recipes more than I do.  Just ask my old pastry chef from culinary school.  I think that woman couldn’t wait for the semester to end and me to leave her pastry class!

Give this Fudge Brownie Cupcake recipe a try.  I call it a Fudge Brownie Cupcake because the texture of the inside of the cupcake was soft and gooey like a brownie.  I’m not sure if it was supposed to come out that way 😋  but I loved the gooey texture in the middle.

Oh and the best part is that they are vegan AND gluten free!

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: Makes about 8 cupcakes
Ingredients
  • approximately 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1-1/2 cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅓ cup cashew milk, or plain almond milk
  • ⅓ cup agave nectar
  • 1 whole vanilla bean, or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lighly oil your cupcake pan with coconut oil, or skip this step and use cupcake liners.
  2. Mix the almond flour, cocoa powder, arrowroot, ground flaxseed, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl
  3. In a blender mix the milk, agave, whole vanilla bean, and apple cider until the vanilla bean is thoroughly mixed. If you use vanilla extract then you don't need to put this in a blender. Just put these ingredients in a bowl and stir.
  4. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir. Evenly divide this mixture into the cupcake pan.
  5. Place the cupcakes in the oven and bake for 30 – 35 minutes. If you place a toothpick, or knife, in the cupcake it should come out clean.
  6. I've made this recipe a few times and, depending on the oven I use, sometimes it takes longer to cook. I call these fudge brownie cupcakes because the texture reminds me of fudge brownies (a little soft and gooey in the middle). So if the center of you cupcakes are still a little soft, don't worry about it! They still taste great.

    I have all of the ingredients except for the cocoa powder. What did you put on top?

      Oh darn, I should have included the frosting recipe. I just blended a cup of cashews with a few dates (or a tablespoon or two of agave nectar), with a whole vanilla bean, about a 1/4 cup of water, and a pinch of salt. It’s a really good vegan cashew frosting.

    These look so good. I like that gooey brownie texture. I used to have the hardest time making cookies but I have gotten much better. Caramel cake is the one thing I can not make!

      Ooohh, caramel cake sounds so good! I might try to make a vegan version one day. Thank you for the idea!

    I haven’t eaten dinner yet. I’m getting really hungry looking at these desserts! Now I want to start baking instead of making dinner.

    Mmmm….they look yummy. What a bonus that they are vegan and gluten free! I think your right about the measurements if you don’t believe in exact measurement it could throw everything off. These look great, happy baking!

      Thank you! Yes, it’s so hard for me to follow exact measurements. I rarely cook that way! I like to “eyeball” everything.

    These are the kind of dessert that might have to be make once a year for us. LOL i love to baked but golly sometimes it’s hard for me to stop baking especially if it’s delicious like this post. This is one of my family favorite to eat. Sometimes my mother-in-law add vanilla ice cream on the top and oh boy it’s yummy.

      Goodness, this would be sooo good with vanilla ice cream. Sounds like you’re a good baker. I could probably learn some things from you!

    That fudge muffin really looks so great to taste and eat. Now you have got me in the mood to eat a choco cupcake right now, but it is 1030 at night already!

    Hahaha hopefully you’ll make better and better desserts from now on! I also suck at baking because you’re right! The science to it it too exact, anything could go wrong! XD
