Because I was asked regularly to develop gluten- and lactose-free recipes, I decided to bring a specialist. Ali Kay’s Kitchen’s Alison developed a chocolate cupcake just for Singlemade: glutenfree, lactose-free and single proof! We love it!
I’ll give the floor to Alison now:
Hello everyone! I’m so excited to be here this week to share some delicious recipes with you. When Minne first told me that she wanted some gluten-free and dairy-free recipes, I knew instantly which recipe I wanted to share with you guys.
This recipe has been one of my go-to favourites for years! I love I can get about the equivalent of a delicious slice of cake in about 5 minutes. If you’re really lazy, you can also mix the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mason jar and keep it for later! Then all you have to do is add the margarine, egg, and vanilla extract and pop it into the microwave. It’s that easy!
Now we can get to the fun part – the mix-ins! This batter for this recipe is thick and cooked quickly, so it provides the perfect conditions for mixing in something sweet or crunchy to give your cake that extra pizzazz. Some of my favourites are:
- Chocolate chips
- Mini M&Ms
- Cut up fruit (cherries, strawberries, etc.)
- Shredded coconut
The sky is the limit! Whatever you feel would go well in a chocolate cake, go ahead and try it out! (and if you take a picture and post it on Instagram, be sure to tag @alikayskitchen so I can see!)
I’ll be back on Thursday to share another delicious recipe, but until then, enjoy a delicious cake, all to yourself! 😉
This cupcake went down well at the Kim-residence. Her tip: Kim used hazelnut powder, adding some great flavour. She didn’t like the topping much: too sweet. She prefers adding some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (Tip!). But in any case: a great dessert!
Hey everyone, I’m Ali Kay and I’m a proud Canadian. I was born and raised into a maple syrup-eating, hockey-loving family that, unfortunately, also dealt with over 10 food restrictions in 6 people. But despite all odds, I developed a love of cooking in my early years and to this day, I enjoy creating recipes that are allergen-free and easy for people to alter to fit their own needs. I hope you enjoy the recipes!
