Gluten and Dairy Free Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Cinnamon Frosting

Hello

I’m going through a little phase of making some new cupcake recipes.  Tonight I’m going to bake some lemon and raspberry cupcakes to take home when I visit my parents tomorrow.  Fingers crossed they will work out well and I can share the recipe with you guys.

Today’s cupcakes are based on a hot chocolate (dairy free) that I had in a Mexican restaurant.  It was made with real dark chocolate, almond milk but the exciting flavour twist was that it contained a good pinch of both cinnamon and chilli.  Maybe it sounds a bit odd but trust me it totally worked and took the hot chocolate to a whole new level.

So, these cupcakes have  chocolate sponge with a pinch of chilli and a beautiful cinnamon frosting to bring together the flavours of that special Mexican hot chocolate.

What is your favourite cupcake flavour and do you have any suggestions for cupcakes you would like to see a gluten and dairy free recipe for?

Enjoy!
