Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcakes are the ultimate desert and these happen to not only be delicious but also sugar free. These cupcakes are great with kids due to their awesome flavor profile. My daughter and her friend devoured these cupcakes the other day as a healthy afternoon snack. My daughter even asked me to make her a red velvet birthday cake using this recipe. I love to make low carb snacks for my daughter and it makes me extra happy when her non low carb friends taste test.

What makes a good Red Velvet Cupcake?

The key to making a good red velvet cupcake is to not over flavor the cupcake with cocoa powder. I flavor my cupcakes with just enough cocoa to get the flavor across without overpowering the cupcake.

Keto Sweeteners

I have made keto Red Velvet Cookies in the past and I used xylitol. Xylitol is an excelled low carb sweetener but my favorite sweetener these days is Golden Monk fruit. It is a delicious because of the combination of erythritol and monk fruit. Golden Monk fruit has a rich flavor and it does not have any weird aftertaste.

Olive Oil Cupcakes

These Red Velvet Keto cupcakes are moist and delicous inside due to the fact that they are olive oil cupcakes. Olive oil cakes are moist and dense and bake up just like a normal cake because of the large amount of oil saturating the almond flour.

Since the red comes merely from food coloring red velvet flavored cakes and cupcakes taste like a chocolate cupcake.

Since these cupcakes are made using an olive oil base they get better after a day. They will keep best in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 day’s.

Instructions

Red Velvet Cupcakes

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a cupcake pin with cupcake liners. Combine the wet ingredients together in a food processor and pulse until combined. Add the golden monk fruit sweetener and pulse until combined. Taste and adjust with more sweetener or extract according to your taste.
  2. Add the dry ingredients to the food processor and pulse until combined. Pour the cupcake batter into the prepared cupcake pan. The batter will be thick, you may need to use a spatula
  3. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cupcakes comes out clean and when you shake the cake there is no "jiggle" effect. Allow the cupcakes to cool before frosting.

Dairy Free Cream Cheese Frosting

  1. Chill the coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight and then open into a medium sized bowl. Melt the Cacao butter in the microwave and set aside. Using a hand mixer, beat the coconut milk and flavorings together for several minutes until it starts to fluff up a bit.
  2. While still mixing the coconut milk add the unflavored gelatin and continue beating for about 7 minutes on high. The frosting should be getting thicker at this point.
  3. Slowly add the melted Cacao to the frosting while still beating.
  4. Add the powdered erythritol one tbs at a time and continue to beat until thickened. Add more erythritol if you need it thicker. Chill the frosting for about an hour if it is not thick enough for your liking.
