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
  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees celsius. Place 18 baking cups into muffin pans.
  2. Place cake flour, natvia and butter in a mixing bowl. Mix for 1 - 2 min on medium speed.
  3. Add skim milk powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix on low speed until blended.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Makes 18 cupcakes.

Icing/Frosting

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.
