Sweetheart Cupcakes for Two

Sweetheart Cupcakes for Two
 
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert, Seasonal
Ingredients
Cupcakes:
  • 1½ tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp Swerve, Granular
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp water
  • ⅛ tsp vanilla extract
Raspberry Filling:
  • 12 raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 to 2 tbsp Swerve, Confectioners
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
Instructions
Cupcakes:
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a muffin tin with two silicon or parchment muffin liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, Swerve, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Whisk in the egg, butter, water, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Divide the batter among the two muffin cups and bake about 20 minutes, until the tops are firm to the touch. Remove and let cool completely.
Raspberry Filling:
  1. In a medium bowl, mash the berries with a fork. Add the cream cheese, butter, and Swerve and beat until well combined. Add a little whipping cream to thin it out if necessary (it should be spreadable but not runny).
To Assemble:
  1. Remove the cupcakes from the silicone or parchment liners.
  2. Using a serrated knife, slice the tops off the cupcakes (you want to cut it a little below where the cupcake liners came up). Use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut a hole in the tops.
  3. Spread about 1 tbsp of the filing over the cut-side of the bottom of each cupcake and replace the top. Use any remaining filling to fill in the heart.

    How are you coming up with 6 carbs? 30 grams less 6 grams fiber less 22 grams Swerve equals 2 grams net carbs. Looks delicious!

      HI Karen,

      Thanks for the message!

      We recently revised the net carbs in this recipe. We determine the net carbs are determined by subtracting how much Swerve is in the recipe (which is taking into account the fiber as well). Since Swerve contains carbohydrates from the erythritol, but does not have the same effects on blood sugar as regular sugar, the net carbs is determined by taking the total carbs (30.3 grams) and with removing the amount of Swerve (22.05 grams) and then subtracting the total fiber (5.81) and then add back the Swerve fiber (1.17). Therefore, the remaining balance is 3.61 which rounds up to 4 grams carbohydrates, and not 6 as originally stated. Hope that helps!
