Sugar Free Red Velvet Cupcakes

3 Comments



Possibly the most famous of the red desserts for Valentine's Day and beyond is the Red Velvet Cake.
I've always associated this cake as being a luscious and decadent treat. Being that this cake normally calls for layers, frosting has to be included into the recipe. In the end, by the time we sit down to eat a red velvet cake, there are a lot of reasons to consume sugar.

So how do we enjoy red velvet cake without all of the sugar?

So how can we make a Red Velvet Cake with no added sugar?

Omitting the need for layers is my way of doing this.
I simply make Red Velvet Cupcakes instead of one large cake with multiple layers of frosting.

Sure, you could whip up a simple buttercream icing to top these cupcakes.

You are still ahead of the sugar game if you do this in the scheme of things.


What kind of pan are you using?

I recently discovered silicon cupcake pans. What I LOVE about these pans (I have silicon baking pans in all kinds of sizes now) is that you can just flip them over and pop out what you have created. I have encountered no sticking issues as well. Yay!
