Royal Riviera Pear Chocolate Rum Chew Cupcakes


Chocolate chew cupcakes with riviera pears, ginger and dark rum. A fine chew with fine flavors! At the upscale end of the CUPCAKE CHEW LINE! Dairy-free whip cream to top it if you wish!

Makes 15 cupcakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

3 fresh, ripe Royal Riviera Pears, peeled, cored and cut into chunks

1/2 c. light brown sugar

1 c. white sugar

1 t. malic acid

1 t. pink Himalayan salt

1 T. vanilla – I used imitation

3 T. walnut oil

3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder

2 t. cinnamon

2 t. powdered ginger

1 T. baking soda

3/4 c. dark rum

2 c. self-rising flour

1/2 c. yellow pea flour

1 t. guar gum powder

1 T. agar agar

1- Combine pears and brown sugar in food processor and process till smooth.

2- Transfer pears/sugar to extra-large mixing bowl.

3– Add remaining ingredients stirring with spoon or hand-mixer till smooth. Lots of beating it takes.

4- Liberally grease insides of cupcake tins, even if they’re non-stick.

5- Spoon about 1/3 cup of batter into each hole, or about 3/4 full.

6- Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.

7- Open oven door, stick a toothpick in center to test if it comes out clean, which means it’s done.

8- Okay, so here is where I veered. It came out clean, but because they jiggled a little bit, and I over-filled the cupcake holes a bit, I put them back for another 5 minutes. Perfect.
