I think Chocolate and coconut might be my new favourite combination. I played around with this recipe, testing it on a few unsuspecting willing friends. The results were more than I could have hoped for. One friend loved them so much that he thought they were an 11/10 and the cupcake was outstanding in it’s own right even without the frosting. Be warned though, they are very rich and decadent. These are for the true die hard chocolate lovers who would NEVER consider leaving a scrap of ganache or cupcake crumb behind on the the plate!!!
I have been experimenting with sticky date pudding recipes and trying a few different ways to put this delicious winter dessert into a cupcake. This recipe is super moist and the hint of aromatic spices complement the dates perfectly. They are delicious as a cupcake or could be spruced up a bit served warm with a heavy dose of butterscotch sauce and ice cream. Any way you choose to eat them, they are scrumptious!!!
