I won’t hold it against you if you’d like to use St. Patrick’s Day as an excuse to make a dessert that isn’t exactly Irish but still festive. And trust me, these are so good that your family/guests/cupcake beneficiaries won’t be asking too many questions. Except maybe if they can have another one. Although these are flourless cakes, they are not dense like fudge. They have a perfectly light and fluffy texture, and the mint cream adds a sweet touch.

This recipe may look a little complicated, but if you can separate eggs, you can do this. I followed the recipe as instructed, and made an even dozen. Next time though, I’d make a little bit more of the mint cream (to which we added green food coloring for that festive flair.) I would recommend you enlist some help washing the dishes, as you need to clean the beaters three times. Not to mention that you’ll use 3 bowls, 2 pots, and a muffin tin. But it’s worth it, I promise.

  1. These really were fantastic. I love that they were light and airy but full of taste!

  2. KC,

    How does one become a taste tester?

  3. Why did I give up treats for Lent? -Lee

  4. ME: Ha, next time I am in your area and need a taste tester, I'll call!

    Lee: You'll have to make these for Easter (maybe the frosting can be pink?)
