Chocolate Cupcake for One

It’s been a long week…

On a Thursday night when you’re beyond exhausted from working, nothing tastes better that warm chocolate-y cupcake.

This recipe makes one VERY BIG chocolate cupcake(or a lot of little ones if you use a mini-muffin pan). It will bring you happiness. Guaranteed.

In case you’re wondering, yes, it will melt in your mouth…

And if you swirl dark-chocolate chips on top of it right after you pull it out of the oven, well, it will bring you more happiness.


1 T cocoa powder

2 T + 2 t spelt flour

pinch of baking soda, baking powder, and salt

1.5 T stevia

1.5 T organic vanilla yogurt

1 T applesauce

1 T non-dairy milk (I used almond)


-Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a muffin tin. Set aside.

-Combine dry in a small bowl. Push to one side. On the other side, mix the wet ingredients. Blend the two together.

-Pour into greased tin and bake for about 12-14 minutes.

Serve warm with melted chocolate, like I did, or maybe some fresh berries and cream for a chocolate-spin on traditional shortcake.
