I’m so excited to share this Skinny cupcake recipe. I have seen these all over Pinterest, but didn’t really believe that they would be good. However, skinny cupcakes recipe was a HIT and it was delicious. I highly recommend you try it.
If you like this recipe, make sure you try these other two I have since created:
Ok – back to my recipe! I’ve been trying to eat better, but for some reason all I can think about is desserts!! So of course I had to try this Sprite zero cupcake. You only need two ingredients:
Yes, you only need Sprite Zero and a cake mix. I used Lemon, but I think strawberry, funfetti, and cherry chip would also be delightful. I’m not sure about chocolate… I might have to try it this weekend.
You just need 1 cup and 1/2 of Sprite Zero and a cake mix. Then you mix them together in a bowl.
Pour into your your cupcake pan. I used liners just like you would for a normal cupcakes. My batter filled 20 cupcakes. After doing the math…..
An entire batch of these cupcakes is 1600 calories. However, I made 20 cupcakes so they are only 80 calroies each! Woohoo! This is a delicious treat for under 100 calories. Of course, if you made 24 cupcakes, they would only be 66 calories each. I didn’t think my batter would make it to 24 cupcakes, so I am happy with 20 delicious cupcakes for very little calories.
Now, I thought these were good, but I was nervous about the kids? I mean would they notice the no eggs and no oil in there? Nope, not at all. They all had two and begged for a third! I didn’t however let them have the third, because what was I going to eat after they were asleep.
I also gave one to my baking friend. She is the master of baking everything… I mean she is always baking. She ate one and couldn’t believe that there wasn’t any egg or oil in there. Woohoo… mission accomplished!!
Have I convinced you yet? You have to try this Skinny Cupcake recipe!
- 1 cake mix
- 1½ cups of Sprite zero
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine the sprite and the cupcake in a bowl. Stir to combine
- Pour in the cupcake pan to make 20 cupcakes.
- Bake for 17-20 minutes or until they start to brown.
- Allow to cool slightly. Serve as it or top with a little bit of powdered sugar so they look cute!
I’m sure you are curious how much I paid for this all, right?
Well I got the cupcake mix for $.25 with a coupon when it was on sale. Then the Sprite zero was $1. I used less than half, but we will say $.50 for even math. That means I paid $.75 for a fun and “healthy” treat.
