While these chocolate spice cupcakes for two take only five minutes of prep time and “bake” in the microwave for just ninety seconds, there is nothing simple about their taste.  Brown sugar, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice bring the best part of the classic spice cake to a cupcake that will thrill chocolate lovers. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream and festive sprinkles. 

Be sure to microwave the cupcakes in silicone cupcake liners – paper liners won’t hold their shape and foil liners are not microwave safe.

Chocolate Spice Cupcakes For Two
Yield: 2 cupcakes

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
4 ½ teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
4 ½ teaspoons milk
1 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
½ egg, lightly whipped (approximately 2 tablespoons whipped egg)
Prepared Whipped Cream
Sprinkles

Directions:

Whisk flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger in a small bowl.

Mix in milk, butter, and egg.
Divide evenly between two silicone cupcake liners. 

Microwave on medium for one minute.

Microwave again on medium for thirty seconds.  If the cupcakes do not bounce back when lightly touched, repeat this step.

Top with whipped cream and sprinkles.
Serve warm.

The recipe sounds good only, none of your recipes make notation of adjustments for high altitude. I live in the mountains and live at 10,000 altitude. Mary Ann

Hi Paula, massive fan here! I know it sounds ridiculous, but I don't have a microwave!? Can I just pop these babies in the oven? They sound delish! If so, which temp and for how long? x

I watch your show daily. You have inspired me to write a book of cakes. It is now published and may be seen as an ebook on Trafford Publishing, Amazon and Barnes&Nobles;. Thank you so much for the inspiration. WE both have acquired type two diabetes. Not an easy thing to deal with.

Lorien - I found them at Michael's, but I'm not sure if they still have them after Valentine's day. You can buy them online here: http://su.pr/1mqV3z Anon - Don't worry. There isn't a typo. The egg does the leavening in this recipe.

I LOVE your recipes and have most of your books. Today, Saturday, 2-12-11, I saw a recipe for Chocolate/Coffee Cupcakes. I'd love to make them for my grandchildren as the last one is going off to college after this year and this is the end of line that has been so much fun. Love You, Claire

I doubled the recipe to make the measurements easier(what do I do with the leftover 1/2 egg?) just tried one while still too warm to frost.good taste and texture. easiest cupcakes I have ever made. I am very happy with this recipe and will try others now that I know how good they can be,thank you Paula.

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
