  • In a medium bowl, use a whisk to combine together the flour (or alternative) and the baking powder. Set this aside.
  • Next, in a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs and the sugar alternative. Beat for about two minutes on medium. Then turn the mixer down and pour in the melted butter and then the vanilla while the mixer is mixing.
  • Stop the mixer, add about half of the flour mixture from the first bowl, mix for 10 seconds and then add ¼ cup of milk and mix for another 10 seconds. Repeat the last step by adding the flour mixture and then ¼ cup of milk. If the batter appears to be too thick (you will need to use your judgment from past experiences with cupcake batters) add a tablespoon of milk at a time, stirring by hand, until you reach your desired thickness. Do not add more than an additional ¼ cup of milk. If you do not feel comfortable doing this simple just go with the ½ cup of milk.

  • For regular sized cupcakes, bake these for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow these cupcakes to cool thoroughly before frosting.

Recipe Notes

I mentioned that you can try subbing in a keto flour or low carbohydrate flour for the all purpose flour (such as carbalose) used in this recipe. Also, when it comes to choosing a sugar alternative that will work in this recipe, my biggest suggestion for best results is to use a granular sugar alternative that measures 1:1 with sugar.
Also mentioned, for best results, I tell my readers to always use fresh ingredients for the best results.
Resist the urge to fill the baking cups more than ¾ full. Doing so can cause your cupcakes to bake over the edges of the cups and onto the pan, a pain to clean up.
