AWESOME Fat Free Cupcakes

Yes, you read that right. I said FAT FREE cupcakes.

What's even better? They're absolutely the easiest cupcakes you'll ever master making!

First thing you should do is the night before pull out your crock pot.
Line the bottom of it with a paper towel.
Then take two cans of sweetened condensed milk. Peel the labels off the cans.
Place the unopened cans in the crockpot.
Fill crockpot with water until it covers the cans of milk completely, plus a little.
Before you go to bed turn the crock pot on low.
Go to bed, dream of milk caramel.

In the morning, turn off the crock pot, allow cans to cool COMPLETELY!

Disclaimer: No one recommends you cook the milk in their cans, but I'm not one for following all the rules either. If you're really worried about anything like BPA, etc propaganda crap you'll have to cook the milk another way to make the milk caramel.

Anyways...the milk caramel, aka dulce de leche, will be relatively cool by afternoon.

Now that it's afternoon, the dulce de leche is cooled, and you're craving some sweets before dinner it's time to bake up the cupcakes.

If you have more than one cupcake pan you should use batch of mix will make 3 dozen cupcakes.

In a large mixing bowl add in a pre-made box of angel food cake. DO NOT ADD THE WATER!!!!!

Next, add in a 20oz can of crushed pineapple, juice & all.

Add in a handful of coconut shavings.

Mix with a wooden spoon until everything is wet.

Spoon the mixture into the cupcake pans. I did not use cupcake liners, I just sprayed the pan with non-stick spray, poured in the batter until the cup was about 1/2 full. DO NOT FILL MORE THAN HALFWAY! You will end up with a MESS!!!

Open one of the cans of dulce de leche.

Spoon in roughly 1/4-1/2 tsp into each cupcake. You'll only use roughly 1/2 a can of the dulce de leche for these cupcakes, but it's always nice to have a spare can lying around. ;-) You'll completely understand.

Bake the cupcakes at 350* until it starts to turn golden on top. I want to say between 7-15 minutes (I really didn't pay attention to the time).

Remove from the cupcake pan. Let cool about 5 minutes or so.


Oh...these cupcakes are fat free until you add in the dulce de leche, unless you believe a friend of mine who says the calories escape when you open the can. I'm not one for arguing. Sounds logical to me.

Top the cupcakes with a bit of whipped cream and a strawberry for an added touch! You know, if you require some sort of topping on your cupcakes.

Now, where these may be fat free, or mostly fat free, I've determined that there's likely about 18g of carbs per cupcake, for anyone that may be interested. :)
