Strawberries & Cream Mini Cupcakes

By Mariella Forte | 14 Aug 2019 | RECIPES

We lighten up these classic creamy frosted cupcakes with gloriously thick whipped Greek yoghurt.

SKINNY STRAWBERRIES & CREAM MINI CUPCAKES – Makes 24 mini cupcakes (70 calories | 3g fat (1g sat fat) | 4g sugar each)

For the sponge you will need:

  • 3 eggs
  • 60g xylitol
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 125g plain flour, sifted
  • 2 tsp high quality natural strawberry essence
  • 1 tsp high strength red food colouring

For the filling you will need:

  • 70g high fruit strawberry Jam

For the frosting you will need:

  • 150g whipping cream
  • 30g xylitol
  • 150g 0% fat Greek yoghurt

STEP 1: Heat oven to 190°c/170°c fan. Line a 24 cavity mini muffin tin with your favourite mini cases.

STEP 2: Whisk up the eggs, xylitol and sugar using an electric whisk or mixer, on a high speed for all of 10 minutes until light and fluffy! Stir in the plain sifted flour, strawberry essence and red food colouring. Divide into a 24 cavity mini muffin tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

STEP 3: Let the cakes cool and then use a cupcake plunger to core out the centre and fill it with the sweet strawberry jam. For the frosting, using an electric whisk whip up the whipping cream and xylitol until stiff peaks form. Fold in the thick Greek yoghurt and then crown your cupcakes with this light and creamy frosting.

P.S. Top tip: Sprinkle with freeze dried strawberries or multi coloured sprinkles for the perfect finishing touch!
