And a cream cheese frosting
Today’s recipe is Keto red velvet cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting. Red velvet is my favourite flavour of cupcakes. It’s actually just a cupcake the red is nothing but colour. There is no additional flavour from the red colour. It is however incomplete without the cream cheese frosting and if I’m being honest, I’m only in it for the frosting. There is no other alternative to the cream cheese frosting because without that it’s not a red velvet cupcake.
The recipe today is pretty simple and easy to make. I’ve kind of taken inspiration from my Keto chocolate chip muffin recipe to make it. Anyway enjoy!
My ugly Keto red velvet
I’m sure you saw the video by now. My cupcakes weren’t pretty and that’s ok. In case you were keeping count I made 8 cupcakes in my video but honestly I think it’s best to make 10, mine were rather big. So my marcos and recipe will make 10 cupakes. If you want to make bigger ones you can go ahead and do that. A couple of other things to note though. I used butter milk which adds a good 6 carbs in total to the recipe over the 10 cupcakes. You can substitute that with heavy cream, sour cream, almond milk or even coconut milk. They should all work.
I used super fine almond flour in my recipe but you can stick to the normal stuff. The Xanthan gum is optional, it’s mainly to help with the structure when you use two different flours. If you don’t have access to confectioners erythritol you can use stevia or any other Keto approved sweetener. Just keep tasting your batter to get the measurements right.
