    Hey Katie!
    So I was wondering if you had ever tried coconut flour for any of your cupcakes?! I’m not sure how/if they would turn out, but I love coconut flour and would love to try them all if possible!
    Thanks,
    Jillian

      I’ve only tried it in the pizzert so far, but it works GREAT when mixed with spelt flour (which is my favorite flour for the single-lady muffins). I’d love to know if you try it in a muffin before I do, as it’s on my to-do list! I’d try replacing 1/4 of the regular flour in the muffin recipe with coconut flour, because that’s what the label on my coconut flour says you should do. (In other words, coconut flour is too dense to completely use on its own, subbed for ALL the other flour in a recipe.)

      Hi Katie,
      I can’t seem to find your frosting recipe for a buttercream. I even checked your frosting section. I am looking for one that would look a buttercream. Its pictured in the single serving cupcake picture in blue buttercream looking frosting. Thanks!! Your website and recipes is so wonderful.

      I have found a 50/50 mix of coconut flour and rice flour works well with more moisture added, try coconut milk, more spple sauce, the liquid from soaked dates, more yogurt. Have a play. I also use 1/2 teaspoon more baking powder.

    Because I love coconut flour – and apprently because I don’t read labels – I just made the single serving cupcake with all coconut flour. Yep, too dense and dry. I will try it mixed with another kind of flour next time. My sense is that it would be great!

      • Julie says

        Coconut flour works great on it’s own! You just have to use a LOT less of it, because it soaks up liquid like a sponge. A recipe for a single cupcake might use only teaspoon of coconut flour and be perfectly fluffy and moist with that amount. I recommend Cooking with Coconut Flour, by Bruce Fife. Lots of helpful information for using it by itself.

    I am not a single lady but just made myself one of these and it was delicious. I’m can’t wait to try some variations on the basic recipe. I had the oven going anyway (cooking beets and sweet potatoes) and thought I toss one in. Yum! I also love that you don’t like things too sweet, I’m the same way. I love natural sugar!! Sweet potatoes and bananas are my favorite. Usually the first thing I do when I look at a recipe is immediately cut the sugar/sweetener in half so I’m thrilled that your recipes are not too sweet. So happy I found your blog 🙂 ~Leslie

    I made this today but subbed 1TB cocoa powder for flour and added cinnamon. I also made it in the microwave. It turned out more like a cookie but was delish nonetheless

    WOW! I just made my first single lady cupcake (microwave style, I’m impatient haha) and I looooooove it. I have a feeling I’ll be making these … hmmm every day perhaps? Thanks, Katie!

    Do you have any idea how much fiber is in each single lady cupcake? I do Weight Watchers and to figure how many points a particular food is, I need the fiber.
    Thanks so much!!

    Thank you so much…what exactly is spelt flour, is there a benefit to using spelt over white or wheat flour and where can I buy it?

    Hi! I found your blog thru a link for your Babies. I bought dates today just to try a couple of them! BUT I was looking around and found Single-Lady Cupcakes. I’ve got to try this! I’m going to have to change it up because I can’t have gluten. Wish me luck!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Ooh good luck! I know others have had success with gf versions… I can’t remember what flours they used, but I think quite a few of them have used packaged gf mixes, and maybe another used a mix of rice flour and buckwheat? I wish I knew more about gf baking. I’m definitely still learning :).

    Oh Katie! You have no idea how much you brighten my days particularly when I see my 3 email posts from you…hee hee, yup for whatever reason I get 3 a day and I LOVE it! Makes me realize computer glitches happen for a reason sometimes. I was feeling a bit down and then the morning comes and there you are…you and all 3 of your emails. :::giggling:::

    I wanted to tell you how much your site has made me realize how far I’ve come health wise. I feel the best I have in my lifetime, physically, emotionally and in so many other ways. I’ve lost a ton of weight and found I truly enjoy eating well now. It feels far better on my body and I never feel guilty for enjoying a treat that I make from your site. You’ve done more for me than you could possibly understand Hon ♥ I do need advice on a FOOD PROCESSOR.. HELP…what type do I want to get if I want to make Pesto, Pita Bread, have it for veggies, etc. It’s me so I don’t need it for a family of 10 but I do want one big enough so it has power to do bread etc. Advice?? ANYONE??? I don’t think my email will show (which I guess is good) so if anyone can help me via Katie or post it on this single lady comment section. It would be MORE than appreciated. Model number/brand etc. that has NEVER failed you. I want one that will work now so I don’t have to upgrade to a larger one if I get one too small. Make sense? YIKES, I wrote a lot. LOL BIG HUGE Hugs to you Katie and all your faithful readers♥ Beth xo

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Awww Beth, thank you SO much for such a sweet comment :).
      As for a food processor, I highly recommend Cuisinart! I’m currently using my mom’s old one. It’s at least 7 years old, and yet it still works perfectly for everything I throw into it! 🙂

      (Mine’s just called “Cuisinart Basic Food Processor.”)

    Hey Katie! I love your blog, and i am a religious baker as well. But my family doesn’t have the sweet tooth that I have. So i love the single serving cupcakes and muffins. But i was wondering if you had a good recipe for single serving brownies. Brownies are my absolute favorite desert but I can’t find any healthy ones. Thanks so much!
