Ingredients

For the frosting:

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 175 Celsius / 350 Fahrenheit.
  • In a food processor or with a blender, mix the butter, granulated sweetener and sugar free syrup.
  • Add the eggs and blend.
  • Add the dry ingredients and spices and blend until smooth.
  • Fill into 8 paper or silicone cups (I used silicone cups which I greased with butter, just in case) and place in a muffin/cupcake pan. My batter was quite thick - it softens as it heats.
  • Bake ca 20 minutes.
  • To prepare the frosting, heat the cream with the fibre syrup in a small pot and let it bubble over a medium heat until it reduces - around 5-10 minutes.
  • Stir in the brown sugar replacement, add a pinch of salt and let the mixture cool. Keep stirring from time to time.
  • Once the caramel is only lukewarm, whisk it into the softened butter.
  • Let the cupcakes cool completely before you decorate with the caramel frosting.

Notes

I had the oven on 190 Celsius in the beginning, that's why my cupcakes browned a little too much on the top. I reduced the heat to 175 Celsius as soon as I noticed. If you set your oven to 175/350 Fahrenheit, yours should come out perfectly.
