What zero point sweetener do I use for these Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes?

Lakanto Sweetener – MonkFruit Sweetener – a zero glycemic, zero calorie and all natural sugar substitute and it’s by far the best tasting sweeter out there.   It has no artificial aftertaste, is 0 calories, 0 additives, 0 Freestyle smart points, gluten free, 0 carbs and bakes and tastes just like sugar.

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg or 2 large eggs whites
  • 1 Tbsp Land o’ Lakes light butter made with canola oil

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together pancake mix, sugar substitute, baking powder, water, egg or egg whites, melted butter or unsweetened applesauce, almond extract and vanilla extract, until well combined.
  3. Spoon batter evenly into a lightly (sprayed with non stick cooking spray) muffin tin, filling each cup 3/4 way full.
  4. Bake for 12-14 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cupcakes cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.
  5. While cupcakes are cooling, make the filling.
  6. In a medium bowl, using a whisk, blend together, fat free cool whip and vanilla extract. Then fold in the sliced strawberries.
  7. Slice the tops off each cupcake and fill with whipped cream mixture. Place cupcake top back on top.

Notes:

  • You can substitute the light butter for 2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce, however the points are the same either way. I recommend the light butter as it gives them better flavor and texture.

These were really good. Two things. Don't use paper liners. Use the spray, just like she said to do. Next - the batter is super wet, almost liquidy. I thought to myself, there is no way these are going to get solid and especially not in 12-15 minutes. But they did. My family loved them. I will make them again just to eat the cakes by themselves. With such low points, it was a treat.

Your recipes are wonderful and I make them all the time. I just tried the strawberry shortcake muffins and they didn't rise, but actually caved in some. The only thing I did differently from the recipe is use cupcake liners in the muffin tin. What do you think I should try next time to get that fluffy muffin top that's in your photo? They still tasted great though. Thank you always!

Hey Linds, Just made the shortcake and I am so sorry to say they are definitely NOT good! Did not use the Devotion protein powder, had my own in Vanilla flavor. My family has enjoyed all the recipes I have made...until this one. I made the recipe exactly to your recipe with the above exception and the muffins where rubber as in an egg consistency nothing like a fluffy cake to bed my yummy strawberries. Please advise. Thank you, Yvette P.
