Mama's Large Batch Cupcakes & Muffins
by Patti 'Mama' Corso-Driedger
It's time for birthdays, parties, and celebration. Mama's Cupcakes look great and taste better! Especially when topped with her Low Carb Cream Cheese Icing. For flavouring purposes Mama uses LorAnn Oils because they're Gluten-Free and Sugar Free!
This recipe uses our current show-exclusive Sweetheart Mix, but is interchangeable by using 6 packages of Low Carb Mama's Vanilla Mug Cake.
Note: This is the recipe for large batch cupcakes using Mama's Sweetheart Mix. For the individual servings using Mama's Mug Cakes, refer to this page.
Low Carb Mama's Vanilla Cupcakes or 8" Cake
Patti 'Mama' Corso-Driedger
My Favorite recipe ever! Quick and easy birthday cake! Whether you are a straight up vanilla fan or wanting to get creative with flavours, lemon, banana (let your mind run wild). This is the place to start! With a moist texture thats not too dense, enjoy as is with whip cream or ice for that special occasion.
1 ½ Cup of Low Carb Mama's Sweetheart Vanilla Baking Mix
1 ½ tsp Vanilla
½ Cup Almond Milk
¼ Cup Butter, Melted
Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Line 9 - 12 muffin cups with parchment paper or grease with coconut oil. Fewer cupcakes will give you larger cupcakes.
With a mixer, beat eggs and vanilla on high until fluffy.
By hand, mix in the almond milk, melted butter, and a half cup of Mama's Sweetheart Mix. Combine until blended, but do not beat together. If adding a variation do so during this step.
Continue adding a half cup of Mama's Sweetheart Mix, twice more until all combined.
Evenly pour the batter into the muffin cups, or grease 8" cake pan and bake at 350°F for 24-28 mins for cupcakes or muffins and 28 - 35 mins for cake. They should be slightly firm and not wet to touch.
Let cool and serve with low carb ice cream, whipped cream, or Mama's Cream Cheese Icing (Recipe here)
