The spread taste really great on its own as well. Just be careful not to indulge into it so much, because at the end calories are calories, whatever great treat we take.

Let us start baking those beautiful Keto Chocolate Cupcakes step by step

How to bake Keto Chocolate Cupcakes?

First Step: Prepare Ingredients

Prepare all of your ingredients for the cupcakes.

For the sugar substitute, I normally use Sukrin, but have experimented also with Swerve or Lakanto. It really depends on your preference.

The amount of sugar is also to your liking. If you do feel it is not sweet enough, just add a bit more. Or less if too sweet for you.

Second Step: Mix all Ingredients

First mix eggs together with sugar until fluffy creamy consistency is achieved.

Subsequently add all of the remaining ingredients and mix them all together fully.

I normally use only a hand mixer, since this recipe calls for only 6 cupcakes and it is much much easier for me.

But if I would double or triple the recipe for a party, I would for sure take out my big Kenwood Kitchen Machine.

Third Step: Pour into the Muffins Molds

Once everything is fully mixed, pour the mixture into the cupcake molds. I like to use single silicon molds inside the cupcake baking sheet. But you can use any muffin molds you have, paper, silicon or jut pour it directly into the baking sheet.

Fourth Step: Bake

Bake for 10 minutes and all is done.

Once baked, keep it on the kitchen counter and let it cool completely if you are planing to use the Frosting or icing on top. Otherwise the frosting will melt.

How to make Keto Cream cheese Frosting?

For this recipe I have decided to mix Cream cheese together with nutella to achieve even more chocolatey taste to our perfect moist, fluffy and delicious Keto Chocolate Cupcakes.

First Step: Warm Up Nutella

Because I have chosen for this recipe Suntella from Lakanto, I have warmed up the nutella a bit to get creamier consistency. In that way it was much easier for me to mix all into a creamy smooth frosting.

I have not added extra sugar and kept the sweetness only from Nutella.

We do not like extra sweet desserts and because the cupcakes are already sweet enough, together with nutella that is more than enough of sweetness for us.

Second Step: Mix ingredients

Simply mix the two ingredients into a smooth consistency.

Depending on chocolate spread you are going to be using, you might experience the icing to be a bit liquid. In this case just add more of the chocolate spread to achieve more thickness.

Third Step: Place into the Icing bag

Once you are happy with the consistency, scoop all of the mixture into a piping bag, with a tip of your choice. Place it into the fridge and let it cool fully and completely.

Fourth Step: Pipe

When you are ready to serve, prepare all of the muffins and take out the Keto Chocolate Frosting from the fridge.

In a circular motions, cover the whole top of the muffin with Frosting and serve.

Bakers tips

For the cupcakes molds, use the ones you prefer the most. I like the silicon molds, because they never really stick and are easier taken out once baked.

I also prefer to place the silicon molds directly into the baking cupcake tray, for an uniform shape. The baking form will prevent cupcakes to raise in different directions.

For the sugar substitute, my favorite is Sukrin brand, but I have already baked those cupcakes with other variations and they all came our perfect.

Bare in mind, if you use Xylitol, it is poisonous to dogs.

Cacao vs cocoa

Depending on the brand of your Cacao or Cocoa, the color might change slightly.

Cacao for example is a bit lighter and reddish compare to Cocoa, which is fully dark.

Frequently asked Questions and answers.

How many carbs in one Keto Cupcake?

Those Keto cupcakes are perfect for calculation of your carbs as well. If you are counting only a cupcake without frosting it is the easiest.

1 Keto Cupcake = 1 g of carbs

If you add Frosting into it, total cupcake come into 5 g of carbs with 3 grams of Fiber.

To ease the calculation we normally subtract Fiber, and therefore again easy:

1 Frosted Keto Cupcake = 2 g of Carbs

How to store Chocolate cupcakes?

Once baked, we normally finish them in about an hour.

But, if you want to store them, they stay perfect for up to 3 days in an air tight container inside the refrigerator.

Can you freeze Keto Chocolate Cupcakes?

Yes, you certainly can and I do it all the time. Just place them in the container and straight into the freezer.

Then every time you need a bite, just take as many pieces as you need and enjoy.
