Last week I did a review on the new Equal Sucralose – an alternative to sugar that measures like sugar and is comparable to Splenda. (but with much better packaging) I wanted to really give it a thorough “sweetness” test so I decided to replace the sugar in some vanilla cupcakes as well. Since I had the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker already heated up I decided to use it to make St Patrick’s Day Swirled Cupcake Pops! They were great!
St Patrick’s Day Vanilla Swirl Cupcake Pops
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 1/3 c butter softened
- 3/4 c sugar (or Equal Sucralose)
- 1/4 c sour cream
- 3 egg whites
- 1/3 c milk
- 2 tsp vanilla
- green food coloring
Mix all ingredients together except for the food coloring. After batter is mixed well with no lumps, add food coloring and gently mix in letting the color “swirl” – do not over mix.
Spoon swirled mix into your Babycakes Cake Pop Maker and let cook three and a half to four minutes or until cooked all the way through. The batter will be “swirled” both inside and out making for a pretty little pop!
The great part about these is that they taste fantastic without any icing or anything! They are sweet like cupcakes and are the perfect “poppable” size for snacking! These did not last long before they were gobbled up. The flavor was great – I was impressed. I have never made cupcakes “from scratch” but we really enjoyed these!
I will be making more of these for the girls to take to school, and also going to make the Pancake Pops on St Patrick’s Day morning – just adding some green food coloring to the mix.
Do you make a “green” breakfast on St Patrick’s Day?
