Absolutely the best Gluten-Free Chocolate Filled Cupcakes, it is not very often I will make this statement. Chocolaty, moist, and filled with freshly made chocolate sauce. A chocolate cupcake for chocolate lovers! I believe you can’t have too much chocolate, especially when the chocolate is freshly made.

And let’s be honest, everyone should have a chocolate cupcake recipe. Because I wanted to make these gluten-free chocolate filled cupcakes extra special, I added a topping. You have two choices, either fresh whipped cream or one of my favourites, a freshly made royal cream cheese frosting. Interested yet?

Yes, this is the best chocolate cupcake because it has three things going on. A moist luxurious chocolate cupcake, a freshly made chocolate sauce and a delicious topping. You may think this recipe is complicated, but in fact, it is super simple to make. I will get into that a little later. This is one of those cupcakes that you can serve instead of a birthday cake. It is that special and beautiful.

Things to know

Firstly this is an egg-free, egg replacement free cupcake. How wonderful is that? Did you know that good quality dark chocolate is a powerful source of antioxidants? I used two flours to keep the recipe simple. An all-purpose gluten free flour blend and almond flour. The almond flour is what keeps the cupcakes moist.

To make the cupcake extra chocolaty, I melted chocolate chips into the batter. The chocolate sauce itself was super simple; all you do is heat all the sauce ingredients until melted, that is it! Because I wanted to make this cupcake extra special, I added another layer of deliciousness, a whipped topping.

The topping is not needed, but I wanted to use these cupcakes for birthdays, so the topping was a must. You can always add a candle to each cupcake. These chocolate cupcakes are so much fun to eat. What a great idea for kids birthdays 🙂

How is it done?

I know everyone is thinking, how do we get the freshly made chocolate sauce inside the cupcake. That is easy. Using an apple corer, you create an opening in the middle and spoon in the sauce. That’s it, nothing complicated.

Once this is done, you add the topping, but you want the cupcakes to be cooled first. I should have called these beauties birthday cupcakes, don’t you think? If you LOVE chocolate, check out these gluten-free chocolate desserts
