Double-Chocolate Blackberry Mini Cakes

BY : PUBLISHED : August 9th, 2013 UPDATED: November 14th, 2021

I set out to create a new muffin recipe but we all agreed these would lovely for dessert. We enjoyed them as is but feel free to top them with your favorite plant-based frosting.

The slightly tart berries are a nice contrast to the rich, dark chocolate. Try subbing raspberries or blueberries!

I was trying to make muffins but decided these were too sweet for breakfast. The slightly tart berries are a nice contrast to the rich, dark chocolate. Try subbing raspberries or blueberries!
