Cherry-filled Diabetic cupcakes.

March 21, 2008

I made these for my uncle to have on Easter, since he can’t have regular cupcakes which are loaded with sugar. These are from, a diabetic lifestyle website. He likes cherry so I used lite cherry pie filling, but you could in theory use any pie filling you want- blueberry, etc.

There are many resources out there for diabetic and low sugar cupcakes and desserts, as well as gluten-free (Jamie I haven’t forgotten! I’m looking into it!) and low-carb cupcakes and desserts. So if those apply to you, I encourage you to look on the internet! There are so many websites out there catering to the special diet needs of every different kind of person, its crazy!

But anyway back to this recipe….

Feel free to start singing Warrant’s ‘Cherry Pie‘ at any time during the making of these. “She’s mah cherreeeeh paaaaaiiii…”



  • 1 package (18.25 ounces) white cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp. Canola oil
  • 3 egg whites
  • ¾ cup canned light cherry pie filling


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line muffin pans with mini-paper liners.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, water, oil and eggs; mix well.
  4. Spoon batter by ½ cupfuls into paper-lined muffin pans. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of cupcake comes out clean.
  5. Remove cupcakes from oven and cool.
  6. Using a teaspoon, scoop out a cavity about ½ inch deep in center of each cupcake and discard (or eat! haha).
  7. Fill cavity with 1 teaspoonful of cherry pie filling. Pat down filling with back of spoon.

These are LOW sugar, not sugar free, so if you’re making them for a diabetic be sure to make them aware of that. They came out absolutely amazing looking, I don’t like cherries or else I would’ve stolen one and taste tested it!

This recipe made 18 cupcakes for me. I probably could’ve made an even 2 dozen and just made smaller cupcakes, but wheres the fun in that?

Make these and while you eat them, ponder whatever happened to Warrant, and if they ever had another hit song after that one. Or just make them and eat them doing whatever you want. *shrugs*

  3. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get
    irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the
    whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  4. Fantastic items from you, man. I’ve have in mind your
    stuff previous to and you’re just too great. I actually like what you have acquired here, really like
    what you’re saying and the best way by which you assert it.
    You are making it entertaining and you still care for to keep it sensible.
    I cant wait to read far more from you. That is actually a tremendous web site.

  5. Simply want to say your article is as surprising. The clarity on your publish is just nice and that i could assume you’re
    an expert on this subject. Fine along with your permission let me to snatch your feed to keep updated with coming
    near near post. Thanks a million and please
    carry on the gratifying work.

  6. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  7. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  8. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble
    locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email.
    I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you
    might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look
    forward to seeing it grow over time.

  9. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking
    about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  10. It’s in fact very complex in this full of activity life to listen news on Television, thus I just use internet for that purpose, and obtain the most up-to-date news.

  11. Nice weblog right here! Also your web site a lot up fast!
    What host are you using? Can I am getting your affiliate link for
    your host? I want my website loaded up as fast as yours lol

  12. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
