Died and Gone To Heaven Cup Cakes

Died And Gone To Heaven Cup Cakes

1 3/4 cups organic all-purpose flour
1/2 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1/2 cup SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups fat free milk (Hood's would be a good alternative)
1 small lunch size container sugar free applesauce
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup hot strong black coffee


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cake pan or bundt with non-stick cooking spray, set aside
2) Blend flour, SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt in large mixing bowl.
3) Combine buttermilk, oil, eggs, vanilla extract, and coffee in a small bowl.
4) Add flour to mixture, using an electric mixer on medium speed, mix until Smooth (about 2 minutes).
5) Pour batter into cake pan or bundt pan. If traveling, I recommend a 13 x 9 pan
6) Bake for 35 minutes, until an inserted toothpick in center of cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes.

Sugar Free Frosting
1 (1.4 ounce) package sugar-free instant pudding mix
1 1/2 cups milk
1 shot instant espresso
1 (8 ounce) fat free package cream cheese
1 (8 ounce) container sugar free frozen whipped topping, thawed

1) In a medium bowl, combine pudding mix, milk and espresso. Mix well and let stand until thickened.
2) In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add pudding and mix well. Finally, fold in whipped topping.
3) I recommend you keep this cake refrigerated until serving. The frosting will sometimes puddle if it becomes to warm.
