If I were to walk into a bakery and choose a flavor of cupcake, 9 times out of 10, I would probably choose red velvet. I just love it.
Now, the thing with cupcakes is…they are not really healthy for you at all (yes, duh, I know). And the recipe I used for these isn’t exactly chock full of nutrients either. But it is a Weight Watchers recipe, so at least when you enjoy your red velvet cupcake, you can feel a little less guilty about it. You can find the recipe here.
Are these cupcakes like the red velvet ones you would find in a bakery? No, they are not. You can definitely tell they’re a lower fat version – particularly when it comes to the frosting, which you don’t get an awful lot of, and which is nothing like the super rich cream cheesy goodness that usually comes atop a red velvet cupcake. But, despite that, I REALLY like these and have made this recipe several times over the past few years.
Now doesn’t that look tasty?
