They are SOFT but FIRM and won’t break apart when you bite into them.
They have a strong chocolate flavor, ENHANCED by the addition of some brewed coffee in the batter.
Now, I didn’t top them off with a swirl of frosting, which is my usual style.
Instead, I spread half peanut butter and half sugar free chocolate spread on the tops.
I also spread just chocolate spread on some cupcakes, which tasted HEAVENLY and they were obviously my favorite!
Here are some notes about this recipe:
- My recipe is adapted slightly from here.
- I used granulated Splenda in this recipe but I have also made these cupcakes with the Splenda sugar blend that has some sugar in it. Cupcakes made with granulated Splenda had a subtle bitterness but once you frost the cupcakes, you can’t really taste it anymore. Cupcakes made with Splenda sugar blend barely had the bitterness.
