Welcome all, fill your tum with my num num nums.

Gluten, Dairy & Legume free recipes; some by design, others are just nice recipes that happen to be! There are recipes and also shopping 'finds', all of which are good for free from people and all yummy whether you are following a particular diet or not! Just because something is 'free from' doesn't mean everyone can't enjoy it - and you may be surpised at how much happier your body is.

'Special' is how my friends describe my food and me, I don't think it's entirely complimentary!

Chocolate Cupcakes

These are very yummy; light, moist and chocolatey and people who aren't on special diets will want them too so think carefully before you take them to work! My receptionist loves these, especially with chocolate frosting. They don't taste coconutty at all.

Makes 10 - 12 cupcakes depending on the case size. They rise a LOT more than you think; you have be warned! I normally fill cases just over 2/3.

6 tbsp coconut butter/oil
1/2 cup sifted coconut flour
1/4 cup coconut cream
1/2 cup cocoa
6 eggs
1 cup & 2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder

Preheat the oven to 175c.
  • Mix together the melted coconut butter and the cocoa.
  • In a bowl whisk together the eggs, coconut cream, sugar, salt and vanilla.
  • Stir in the cocoa mixture.
  • Combine the flour & baking powder then whisk in until there are no lumps.
  • Spoon into cupcake cases, it may look to thin to start with but you will see it thickening even as you scoop.
  • Bake in an oven for around 20 minutes until a skewer in the centre comes out clean.
  • Let cool on a rack, though the cook obviously deserves one still warm out of the oven.
  • Great frosted, I'll post some recipes soon!

  1. I frosted some of these with raspberry fluff today - lurid pink colour and a ton of sugar but I love fluff! (for those not in the know it is an american marshmallow spread - all types of wrong but I love it!
