Sugar free cupcakes have been the death of me. most recipes call for some artificial sweetener or Stevia, as i am cooking these for both children and adults i really do not want to go adding any of that and it gives off a taste i find i dont like. I find by using a basic pancake recipe (1 cup self raising flour, 1 cup milk, 1 egg) then adding maple syrup to taste and reducing the milk has been the easiest and best cupcake results. I have had a Huge success from children saying my cupcakes are the best, adults also love it too.
Try adding cocoa / cinnamon & vannila essence or other ingredients for your liking just remember to sift dry ingredients in with the flour and wet ingredients add with the milk.
