I thought I had struck it gold when I made my lemon 80 calorie cupcakes. Then I was in love when my Chocolate 80 calorie cupcakes were a huge success. I thought that was the best we could do for a low calorie cupcake. However, I have beat all odds and created a 60 calorie cupcake – Angel Food Cupcakes. Now if you don’t want the strawberry or Cool whip, this cupcake will actually only be 41 calories each… WHAT??! Yes, you read that right… only 41 calories each.
- 1 Box of Angel Food Cake mix
- Cool Whip Free
- Fresh Strawberries (cut into quarters)
- cupcake liners
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Prepare Angel Food according to the directions.
- Spoon the batter into the cupcake liners about ¾ full (I used big cookie scoop). Will make about 41 cupcakes.
- Bake for 8 minutes until the top is slightly colored (not brown anymore)
- Allow to cool completely.
- Add 2 tablespoons of Cool Whip free to each cupcake
- Add 2 pieces of strawberries for decorations (2 quarters).
Angel Food Cupcakes are less than 60 Calories each!
So you are probably wondering where we came up with 60 calories, right?
- 1 Box of Betty Crocker Angel Food Cupcakes – 1680 servings (we made 41 cupcakes) = only 41 calories each
- 2 Tablespoons of Cool Whip free – 15 calories
- Straberries – they have practically no calories – only 28 calories for an entire cup. Since we used just a half a strawberry, I just rounded up.
- Grand total is 56 calories plus the half a strawberry!
