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.
