Egg, Dairy & Nut Free Crazy Cupcakes

We are always looking for egg, dairy & nut  free recipes for my grandson Jett.  He has many allergies making finding treats he can have a problem.

Here is a recipe I found from Sweet Little Bluebird, it’s called Crazy Cake.  It uses no eggs, dairy, or nuts. She mixes and bakes it in an 8″ square pan, really easy! She has adapted the recipe to make different flavor cakes.

I used the basic chocolate cake recipe, but made cupcakes instead. Obviously I had to mix it in a bowl to make cupcakes, but the steps are the same, I just had an extra item to wash.   The recipe will make a dozen cupcakes.  You can frost the cupcake with Oh She Glows‘ 2 ingredient fudge frosting that’s also dairy free.

When making this cake it’s important to strictly follow the directions.  Ingredients must be added exactly as described for it to work.  I don’t know how it works, but incredibly it does.  The cupcakes turned out moist and yummy!

Here’s the recipe!

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Dry Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tbsp.  unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Liquid Ingredients:

1 tsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
5 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 cup water

Egg, Dairy & Nut Free Crazy Cupcakes

Directions:  You must follow them exactly

1.  Place the 5 dry ingredients in a bowl.

2.  Mix them well.

3.  Make 3 indentations in the four mixture.  2 small, 1 large.

4.  Place the vinegar and vanilla in the 2 small indentations and the oil in the large one.

5.  Pour the water over all of it.

6.  Mix until smooth.

7.  Spoon into cupcake pan lined with cupcake liners and bake for 28-30 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.  (I use a toothpick to test for doneness)

Cool completely.  Frost cooled cupcakes if you like.  Click here for Oh She Glows’ 2 ingredient chocolate fudge frosting.

I make these cupcakes specially for Jett, but the family loves them too!   To keep them I freeze the cupcakes in ziplock freezer bags and thaw them out and frost as needed.

Thanks to Sweet Little Bluebird for this awesome recipe!

Double Double Chocolate Brownies

Double Double Chocolate Brownies

Double Double Chocolate Brownies

Brownies are one of our favorite treats.  They’re are go to food whenever we have a craving for chocolate!  Most of the time we use brownie mixes to bake up a batch, but there’s no better brownies than those made from scratch, and the best ones are these Double Double Chocolate Brownies!

They’re made with 4 types of chocolate with real creamy butter, there’s no skimping on these brownies.  I use the best chocolates I can find, usually Valrhona when I can find it, if not Gharardelli and Guittard work well too.  Bake some today, you’re sure to love them!

Ingredients:

Double Double Chocolate Brownies
1 cup unsalted butter
4 squares Valrhona or Ghirardelli unsweetened baking chocolate (or the best quality brand you can find)
3 tbls.  unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 cup Ghirardelli white chocolate chips (or the best premium brand you can find)
1 cup Ghirardelli or Guittard semi-sweet chocolate chips (or the best quality brand you can find)
cooking spray
Directions:
1.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and lightly spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with cooking spray.
2.  Place butter and baking chocolate in microwave safe bowl.  Microwave about 2 minutes or until melted.  Check and stir the mixture after 2 minutes, if it’s not completely melted return to microwave for 30 second until melted.  Stir mixture every 30 seconds between microwaving to prevent chocolate from burning and butter from separating.  Set aside to cool.
3.  Sift together cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt.
4.  In another mixing bowl beat eggs and sugar together until creamy.
5.  Stir in vanilla extract and cooled chocolate mixture.
6.  Add dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
7.  Pour into baking pan and sprinkle white and semi-sweet chips over all.
8.  Bake for 30 minutes or until center is set and tester comes out clean.
9.  Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting into squares.
