Sugar Free Cupcakes Recipe
I got this recipe from Taralynn McNitt’s Blog and have changed it a bit using Australian ingredients.
Calories per cupcake: 127 Carbs: 18 Fat: 5 Protein: 3
- 2 1/4 cup of cake Flour (not very common in Australia but found it in Coles, the brand is Lighthouse Cake & Biscuit Self Raising Flour.
- 1 cup Natvia Natural Sweetener
- 3/4 cup softened unsalted Butter (I used Devondale Light Butter, it seemed to have the lowest fat content but still good for cooking with)
- 1/2 cup skim milk powder
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup skim milk
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- Preheat oven to 175 degrees celsius. Place 18 baking cups into muffin pans.
- Place cake flour, natvia and butter in a mixing bowl. Mix for 1 - 2 min on medium speed.
- Add skim milk powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix on low speed until blended.
- Mix skim milk, eggs and extracts in a small bowl. Stir well. Add milk mixture to flour mixture. Mix on medium-high speed until the mixture is smooth and you see no lumps, remembering to scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally.
- Pour batter into prepared baking tray. Bake cupcakes in 175 degree celsius oven for 12 - 15 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the centre of cupcake comes out clean.
- Makes 18 cupcakes.
For the icing I used Pillsbury Sugar Free Vanilla Frosting as I couldn’t find an equilivant here in Australia. I bought 4 containers which cost $35 including shipping from Ebay. The serving size is 2 tbsp but I only ended up using 1/2 tbsp per cupcake. The frosting is quite thick and filling so I think 2 tbsp per cupcake would be way to much. Therefore instead of 14 servings per container you would have 56. Much better value for the money I paid.
I found some disposable piping bags with 4 different kinds of nozzles in Woolworths and a 4 pack of food colouring to decorate the cupcakes.
For sugar free cupcakes I thought they tasted really good and it was also my first time making cupcakes from scratch. I will definitely be making these a lot in the future.
