Chocolate Sweet

Cocoa Cupcakes: Have your cakes and eat them too

These taste like your favorite Devil’s Food Cake — chocolatey and tender and just tinged with tang.  It’s the cocoa and buttermilk that make them that way.  And while I don’t stop baking during this month when the tradition tilts toward self-imposed culinary austerity (better known as dieting) nor do I stop eating sweets, these are cupcakes I can offer to abstemious types knowing that I’m doing no harm to their New Year’s resolutions.  The cupcakes are full of flavor and low in fat and calories – proof that miracles are possible.

You can find the story about these cupcakes and the recipe for them and their yogurt topping here.
