Jam Filled Chocolate Cupcakes

Jam Filled Chocolate Cupcakes

makes 6


for the cupcakes:

1/2 cup (60g) cocoa powder

4 tbsp buckwheat flour

3 tbsp tapioca flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

pinch salt

3/4 cup (185ml) almond milk

1/3 cup (80ml) maple syrup

15 drops liquid stevia – roughly (amount to taste)

vanilla, to taste

for the frosting:

4 tbsp cocoa powder

3 tbsp maple syrup

2 tbsp tiana’s cooking coconut butter

2 tbsp almond milk

pinch salt

for the jam:

6 spoonfuls jam of choice – I used St. Dalfour



1. Begin by making the cupcakes. Add the cocoa powder, buckwheat flour, tapioca flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl, and mix together. Then, add in the almond milk, maple syrup, stevia and vanilla. Using a hand whisk, fold all of the mixture together until smooth – it will be fairly runny.

2. Line a muffin tin with 6 muffin/large cupcake cases, and pour the mixture into each case. They should fill each one about 3/4 full. Then, transfer the cupcakes into the oven and bake for about 25 minutes until risen, and firm on top with some cracks. When the cupcakes have baked, remove them from the oven and set them aside to cool.

3. While the cupcakes cool, make the frosting. Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup, coconut butter, almond milk and salt into a pan and place onto a low medium heat. Stir all of the ingredients together for about 5 minutes until smooth, the coconut butter has melted and a fudgy consistency has formed. Then, remove it from the heat an set aside.

4. Now, fill the cupcakes. Get the cupcakes, and using a spoon, scoop out a hole  in the middle of each (the size depends on how much jam you want). Then, take a jam of choice, and scoop a spoonful inside. When this is done, get the frosting, and scoop 1/6 of it on top of each cupcake, to cover the cupcake and jam. Then, take the bits of cupcake you scooped out, and place them on top of the glaze with a piece fruit to finish! You can enjoy these straight away while the frosting and cakes are still slightly warm, or you can place them in a cool, dry place to set for a few hours for a firmer finish.
