Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Sour Cream Cupcakes

1 cup cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups sucanat, divided
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup low-fat sour cream
0.33 cup skim milk
2 teaspoons skim milk
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
2 egg whites
1 ounce bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Sour Cream Cupcakes

  1. Preheat oven to 350*F. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper cupcake liner.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine cocoa powder, 1 cup sucanat, flour, salt and baking soda.

  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together sour cream, .33 cup milk, oil, vanilla and whole egg.

  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in wet ingredients. Combine everything with a rubber spatula.

  5. Add egg whites to a large, clean, dry mixing bowl. Whip whites with hand beater until they begin to get foamy. Add remaining sucanat very gradually to whites. Continue whipping whites into medium-stiff peaks.

  6. Fold whites in thirds into cake batter, gently but assertively with rubber spatula.

  7. Fill each of the 12 cupcake liners with batter. Tap bottom of filled muffin pan on counter and transfer immediately to oven. Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of cupcake comes out clean.

  8. Remove from oven and let cupcakes cool completely.

  9. When cupcakes are cooled, combine chocolate and remaining 2 teaspoons of milk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds. Stir until melted chocolate is completely smooth. Spread a thin layer on top of each cupcake. Sprinkle additional chocolate shavings on top, if desired.
