 Chocolate Cupcake

I love this quick & easy recipe and it’s a treat for Beginners.... Must express something to keep getting my recipes.... Thank you❤️


▢6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

▢½ cup hot water

▢¾ cup *granulated zero calorie sweetener (Such as Splenda of Lankato Monkfruit)

▢2 tablespoons brown sugar

▢⅓ cup low-fat milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)

▢1-½ teaspoons vanilla extract

▢1 large egg

▢½ cup light mayonnaise

▢1 cup all-purpose flour

▢1 teaspoon baking powder

▢1 teaspoon baking soda


Preheat oven to 325F degrees. Line a standard muffin tin with 12 cupcake liners and spray with non-stick baking spray.

Add cocoa powder to a large mixing bowl. Pour in hot water and whisk until smooth.

Add no-calorie sweetener and whisk until smooth. Add brown sugar, milk, vanilla, egg and mayonnaise and whisk until smooth.

Slowly sift flour, baking soda and baking powder into wet mixture and whisk until thoroughly combined.

Divide batter evenly among 12 muffin cups, scooping about ¼ cup batter into each one.

Bake about 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of cupcake comes out clean.

Remove and cool in pan for a minute or two before removing cupcakes to wire rack to cool completely.

If desired, sprinkle cupcakes with powdered sugar before serving.

Store any leftover cupcakes in an airtight container at room temperature.


Why add mayonnaise to these cupcakes? Mayonnaise is essentially just eggs and oil and it works extremely well when mixed into chocolate batter. It adds richness, boosts the moisture level and keeps the fresh taste a little longer than if you didn't use it.

*Granulated Non-calorie Sweetener? This recipe calls for a granulated non-calorie sweetener that measures 1:1 for sugar. If you use a sweetener that doesn't measure 1:1, (such as Stevia or Truvia) you will need to adjust the amount you use accordingly.

This delicious batter can also be used to make a cake. Instead of baking in a muffin tin, pour batter into a 9-inch round cake pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake at 350F degrees for 13-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
