Recently NuNaturals contacted me to try their line of Stevia products. I jumped at the chance because I have been in love with Stevia for over a year now, but haven’t baked with it yet.
Inspired by Ben’s almond cupcake from this weekend I wanted to make almond cupcakes topped with frosting and coconut. I used this recipe from the Pastry Affair as a starting point and tweaked it some.
Almond Cupcake Recipe – no sugar
- 1/2 cup stevia
- 3/4 stick butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 almond milk, add more as needed when you combine to achieve batter consistency
Directions: Mix dry ingredients. Separately, mix wet. Combine slowly. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until done.
I love cooking and baking, but have tons of baking failures. I finally realized that BUTTER is the key to good baked goods. In the past I’ve always tried to make things healthier with apple sauce or pumpkin – but they never go over well
Yes, Paula – I’m finally a believer (source)
Question: Are you afraid of any ingredients?
I used to shy away from butter, but now I’m a “Butter Believer”!
