Recipe for Refined Sugar Free Vanilla Honey Cupcakes


  • 1 1/2 cups plain all purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder 

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1/3 cup whole milk

  • 1/2 cup softened butter

  • 1/2 cup raw honey

  • 2 eggs


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake pan with 12 liners.  Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.  In a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the butter for a minute on medium speed.  Add the honey, eggs, milk, and vanilla and continue to beat for 3 minutes on medium speed.  Turn the mixer to low speed and slowly add the dry ingredients until all of the ingredients are well combined.  Spoon the batter into the lined cupcake pan, filling each liner about 1/3 to 1/2 full.  Bake for 24 minutes or until the tops of the cupcakes are slightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into a cupcake.  Allow to fully cool before frosting.

For the frosting:

In a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the softened butter for 2 minutes on medium speed.  Add the honey and beat for another minute.  Add the salt,  100% raw honey, and vanilla bean and beat until the frosting forms soft peaks when whipped.
