Organic Raspberry Truffle Cupcakes

I was in a baking mood this week, and I came across this fantastic recipe for raspberry truffle cupcakes from Annie’s Eats.

With a few tweaks, I made this recipe organic and simpler. These cupcakes are far from health food, but they are made with natural ingredients and the baking method is mindful of waste.

These cupcakes have four basic parts: the cupcake, the filling, the frosting and the truffles. Follow these step-by-step instructions to make your own organic, bakery-quality cupcakes.

The cupcake



I used an organic chocolate cupcake mix for the base of these cupcakes. Because the frosting, filling and truffles are intricate and flavorful, a basic chocolate cupcake is the perfect complement.
