ZUKR Sugar-Free Vanilla Cupcakes with Chick-Themed Cheesecake Topping

Makes 12 cupcakes



  • 180g (1 1/2 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp (10g) baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp (1g) salt
  • 115g (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 100g (1/2 cup) ZUKR erythritol, powdered
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp (5ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 120ml (1/2 cup) plain yogurt
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) milk

Cheesecake Topping:

  • 225g (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 50g (1/4 cup) ZUKR erythritol, powdered
  • 1 tsp (5ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 120ml (1/2 cup) heavy whipping cream
  • 3 drops yellow food colouring


  • Dried mango slices
  • Freeze-dried blackberries


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F) and line a muffin tin with 12 cupcake liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter and powdered ZUKR erythritol until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Mix in half of the dry ingredients, followed by the yogurt and milk. Finally, mix in the remaining dry ingredients until just combined. Do not over mix.
  5. Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners, filling each about two-thirds full.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. While the cupcakes cool, prepare the cheesecake topping. In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese with the powdered ZUKR erythritol and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  8. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until fully combined.
  9. Mix the yellow food colouring into the cheesecake topping until the desired shade is achieved.
  10. Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, use a piping bag fitted with a round tip to pipe a generous amount of yellow cheesecake topping onto each cupcake, creating a dome shape to resemble a chick.
  11. To make the chicks' beaks, cut small triangles from the dried mango slices and gently press them into the frosting of the cheesecake topping. For the eyes, place two freeze-dried blackberries on the front of the topping.
  12. Refrigerate the cupcakes for at least 1 hour before serving to allow the cheesecake topping to set.
