  • Preheat Oven to 300 degrees
  • In a 4 cup heat proof bowl, combine boiling water, cocoa powder and espresso powder. Mix and set aside
  • In a large mixing bowl, separate the eggwhites. Reserve the yolks for later use.
  • Add 1/8 tsp of cream of tarter to the eggwhites. Then, beat the eggwhites until stiff peaks form. Move the eggwhites into a large shallow bowl. Later, we'll add the coconut mixture to this bowl and fold that mixture into the eggwhites. A shallow bowl works best for folding in the eggwhites.
  • In your now empty mixing bowl, combine cream, oil, egg yolks, bocha sweet, stevia and the extracts (vanilla, almond, cocoa) and blend for 1 minute until combined and the bocha sweet is dissolved.
  • Add the chocolate mixture and blend until combined.
  • Add coconut flour, Acacia powder, xantham gum. Beat mixture for 2 minutes on medium speed.
  • Finally add the remaining 1/8 tsp cream of tarter and 1/4 tsp baking soda and beat until these are combined. (Alternately, use 1 tsp of baking powder)
  • Add the chocolate mixture to the waiting eggwhite mixture and fold until completely combined. Do not over fold.
  • Fill cupcake tins until almost completely full. The cupcakes will puff up during baking but then fall as they cool. (See photos)
