You can make all kinds of cup cakes with different flavours and toppings, but they all start off with a basic cupcake mixture. This basic cup cake recipe is fatless so does not use any butter. From this recipe you can add your own toppings, I used chocolate and nuts for some, and icing sugar for the others. These are probably just one of the easiest things you can make, so are perfect for baking with the kids. Based on the brands I used, each cup cake is about 53 calories (without toppings).
