Sugar-free vanilla cupcakes

 

sugar-free vanilla cupcakes

Time for tea … these are so moist and fluffy.

These are a great treat and are perfect for birthday parties.

The cupcakes are so fluffy and they are delicious with my sugar-free raspberry cream cheese frosting or sugar-free chocolate cream cheese frosting.

My big tip is to make sure you cream the butter for the appropriate amount of time. This will ensure delicious velvety cupcakes that everyone will love.

You can also make them egg-free by using natural egg replacer in place of the eggs.

These are also great to use as a base for my healthy Christmas trifle.

Enjoy!

Handy tips

You can also add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the mixture to give it a bit more flavour.
