Cupcake fever!

Homemade cupcakes with protein

I made one batch of chocolate cupcakes and a batch with berries.. Delicious.

(12 cupcakes)

1 egg
3 egg whites
120 g quark (I used non-fat)
1 dl milk or plain yogurt
1-2 tbsp raw cacao (100%)
1 dl rice protein powder
1-2 tbsp flour (I used oat)
2 tsp organic vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of rose salt (Himalayan)
(In case you need additional sweetener, use stevia, lucuma or maple syrup)

For the berry version:
Leave out the cacao powder.
150 g berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries..)

Preheat the oven to 200℃ and prepare 12 cupcake molds.
Combine the egg, quark, yoghurt in a large bowl and whisk together until light and creamy.  
Add the remaining ingredients, except for the egg whites. Beat until the batter is smooth.

In a separate bowl, with clean beaters or whisk, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks. 
(The berry version: fold in the berries before adding the egg whites)

Divide the batter among the prepared cupcake molds.
Bake for about 20 – 25 minutes. I baked these for about 15-19 minutes, since my oven is extra-HOT! :D

Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack. The cupcakes will rise in the oven and fall again in the centre when they're cool.
Gooey centre, check. Moist delicious cupcakes, check. 
You can also try combining the berries with the chocolate batter, I bet it works too.
A quick heads up: the cupcakes are a bit sticky on the first day - they're the best on the day after baking.

Good luck with the baking ;)
