Today, am sharing an easy basic cupcake.

This cupcake is sugar-free but you can own the recipe by adding sugar or any sweetener of choice. I like adding veggie or fruit puree to treats like this to make it nutrient-dense. Is another way of getting veggies and fruit into their diet. You can check HERE to get the cupcake recipe that uses sugar

I use a spatula to mix this cake which makes it NO MIXER cake. The tip is to make the butter-soft before mixing and if you are using sugar grind the sugar to powder or use already made powder sugar.
