Cupcake ingredients:

1 package Proteinfull Baking Classic Yellow Cake Mix, separated
3 1/2 tablespoons water
3 large eggs, separated
3 tablespoons oil or unsweetened applesauce, separated
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 cup carrot juice

Shown with our sugar free whipped cream.


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (use an oven thermometer for best results). Set up paper cupcake liners in a 12-cavity cupcake pan, then spray the liners with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare 2/3 cup mix (loosely packed, 89g) with 1 large egg, 3 1/2 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon oil (or unsweetened applesauce) and 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric.
  3. Mix well and spoon about 1 tablespoon batter into each of the 12 cupcake liners.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes or just until the tops are firm.
  5. While that is baking, combine the remaining mix with 2 large eggs, 1/2 cup carrot juice, and 2 tablespoons oil (or unsweetened applesauce).
  6. Once the yellow layer is cooked, remove from oven and spoon about 2 tablespoons of this batter into each liner.
  7. Bake for about 16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  8. Remove from oven, and let cool completely before topping with whipped cream or frosting. Enjoy!
