Today I have a recipe for Chocolate and Spinach Cupcakes.
I found this recipe online and the link to it is here
100g spinach, wilted, cooled and puréed or finely chopped. Using your hands squeeze out the excess water.
150g unsalted butter, 150g caster sugar, 2 large eggs, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 2 tbsp cocoa powder, 100g chocolate chips/melts, 200g self-raising flour, 1 tsp baking powder.
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Fill a 12-hole muffin tin with muffin cases. Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat. Stir in the spinach. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Fill the muffin cases 3/4 full. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15-18 minutes until well risen and firm to the touch. Cool completely on a wire rack.
It is optional to add frosting but I didn't have any time to.
These were surprisingly good. You can't even taste the spinach and it is good for you so it is a win win situation.
I hope you try this out for yourself.
Talk to you later,
