Any time of the year is a good time for some Sugar Free Red Velvet Cupcake Recipe if you were to ask me.
Sugar Free Red Velvet Cupcake Recipe
Like many people, I've always associated this cake as being a luscious and decadent treat. Being that this cake normally calls for layers,this cake can contain a lot of sugar. Hence, by the time we sit down to eat any regular red velvet cake, there are a lot of reasons to consume sugar.
However, we can enjoy red velvet cake without a lot of sugar added to it.
When we omit the many layers, which include layers of frosting, we can omit cause for sugar. Also, if we make red velvet cupcakes rather than a layered cake we can save a lot too. Hence, I simply make Red Velvet Cupcakes instead of one large cake with multiple layers of frosting.
A while back, I introduced a recipe for a sugar free buttercream frosting.
If you were to use this frosting recipe, with a bit of red dye added, you could have a frosted cupcake. Therefore, you can make an even more red velvet of a cake. While this buttercream recipe is a not the real sugared buttercream recipe, it is a good substitute.
Red Velvet Cake is a popular recipe especially during certain holidays.
We make this recipe over the holiday season thanks to it's festive color. Also, we enjoy this during February when we are looking for romantic desserts. I could eat this every day of the year however.
This recipe calls for you to use a sugar alternative.
You can use the alternative of your choice as long as the amount that you use is equivalent to the recipe. You will also need unsweetened cocoa for this. You will also need red food dye, which can be found on Amazon.
