Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes - MS Cupcake Club - July 2010

Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream
The goal of the Martha Stewart Cupcake club  is to make and bake all the 175 cupcake recipes in the
Martha Stewart Cupcakes book. Each month, one member of the club is selected to choose the cupcake the rest of the members bake each month. This month's recipe was chosen by Bella Baker. A blogroll of all the members is posted, and you are invited to visit the sites and see all the delicious creations!

The July selection for the MS Cupcake Club is Flourless Chocolate cupcakes. I added a topping/filling of raspberry puree, and topped it with raspberry buttercream, a fresh raspberry, and a chocolate leaf.

These did not crack and sink in the middle as I expected them too. They actually had a nice domed top, which level to flat as they cooled. Most people complaind they DID fall - well, they are supposed to. No telling why mine didn't. They taste wonderful, though!


  1. Wow - yours look beautiful! I just plopped some ice cream on mine and called it good. was the icing a little too much sweetness?

  2. I think I added so much raspberry to the icing it cut the sweetness, and added some fruity tartness. They did hold a LOT of frosting, though! That may have been a bit much. They didn't sink like I expected, more of a little depression for the icing, but they did pull away from the sides of the wrappers. I tried to hide it in the photo because really . . unadorned they are NOT pretty!
    Thank you for the compliment!

  3. A Raspberry butter cream would be nice and lite with these. Those are beautiful.

  4. Those are stunning. I am so impressed by how beautiful they are.

  5. I am flattered by all the wonderful comments! Coming from fellow cupckae bakers the praise is very special.

  6. Well, I agree with the others. Your cupcakes are showstoppers! Too gorgeous to eat!
