Ingredients

Cupcake

Frosting

  • 5 ounces Butter unsalted, softened
  • 3 ounces natvia icing mix
  • 2 tablespoon Heavy Cream

Instructions

Cupcakes

  • Preheat fan forced oven to 180C/350F.
  • Place almond meal, cocoa powder, baking powder and natvia into a bowl and mix with a hand mixer on low speed until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together maple syrup, heavy cream, eggs and melted butter.
  • Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix on medium for 2 minutes, until well combined.
  • Line a mini muffin tray with cupcake papers and spoon cupcake mix into the papers until they are 3/4 full. This allows room for the cupcakes to rise.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the center of a cupcake.

  • Set on a wire rack to cool.

Frosting

  • Cut the butter into cubes and place into a bowl.
  • Whip the butter on medium speed with a hand mixer for 3 minutes. Reduce the speed to low.
  • Slowly add the natvia icing mix, one spoonful at a time, as the icing mix is very light and will very quickly be spread over the kitchen if added all at once.
  • After all the icing mix has been incorporated into the butter, add the heavy cream and continue to mix the frosting for a further 3 minutes. Stop the hand mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally to ensure the frosting is thoroughly mixed.
  • Spoon the frosting into a piping bag with a small star nozzle and pipe evenly over the cooled cupcakes.
  • Enjoy Ultimate Low Carb Cupcakes straight away or put them in the fridge if you like your icing a little firmer. We decorated ours with a little extra unsweetened cocoa powder.
