Chocolate Curry Cupcakes

Keto Recipes > Dessert

So I know off the bat that some of you won’t be a fan of this recipe. The first bite was strange, to say the least. Though if you have an open mind about this (and I’m sure you will do if you make it) they really do taste awesome.

The biggest problem here is curry powder. You have to make sure you’re getting some decent quality curry powder. Regularly, curry powder is made of a blend and combination of spices including curry leaves, tamarind, coriander, ginger, garlic, chili, pepper, poppy seeds, mustard seeds, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, cumin, fennel or anise seeds, fenugreek seeds, nutmeg, coconut, turmeric root or powder, and rosewater. All of these together will pair fantastically with chocolate.

The Japanese have been pairing curry and chocolate together for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Now that’s a long time – so it can’t be that bad. That’s what I thought, so I decided to come up with a cupcake recipe that’s a bit unique.

So, if you have an open mind, like curry, and want to have something different – give these a try! The coconut icing paired with the cakes was fantastic. I didn’t sweeten the cupcakes as much as I normally would, so they come out a bit on the savory side without the icing (I mean, savory for a cupcake).

Yields 6 Chocolate Curry Cupcakes

  • ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

The Icing

The Execution

1. Bring all of your ingredients to room temperature and preheat your oven to 350°F. An awesome trick for this with eggs is to submerge them into warm water!

10. In a spice grinder, grind about 1/2 to 2/3 cup NOW Foods Erythritol. This should powder it into about 1 cup worth.

11. Beat 4 Tbsp. Room Temperature Butter until it’s pale. Add 1/2 of the erythritol.

12. Continue mixing until well combined, then add 1/4 Cup Coconut Milk (the fatty part at the top of the can, if you can).

13. Mix well until combined and then add the rest of your erythritol. Continue mixing until it is fluffy.
