Chocolate Cupcakes – honey, sprouted

I must say I love a good tea party. When my oldest girl was little (she’s 18 now), we used to attend a formal tea party and always had such a sweet time. As Hannah (my 10 year old) grows older, she now loves making and sharing tea with others. On the menu, she requested to have chocolate cupcakes, with a strawberry on top. With the milder weather, dandelions are popping up. She picked a wide array and plans to make dandelion flower tea for the spread as well. The recipe I pieced together for the cupcakes turned out well, so for those looking for a sprouted flour, raw honey sweetened option…
