I use grass-fed butter, but you can substitute with light tasting oil or ghee if preferred.
I use and recommend Bob's Red Mill Doubling Acting Baking Powder for this recipe and for all low carb gluten-free baking. It really helps give a good rise and consistent baking results every time.
Sour cream can be replaced with yogurt or coconut cream (if a dairy-free keto cupcake is required).
I use a USA Crown Top Muffin Tray for the cupcakes pictured. I do not spray or line the pan. However, if you are using a pan that does stick either use cupcake liners or grease the pan as needed.
Making Keto Cupcakes with thermal-cookers.
Magimix Keto Cupcakes - I use the food processor attachment and simply pulse the cake batter until it just comes together. This ensures I do not over-whip the batter. Use our incredible keto frosting recipe to pipe onto your keto cupcakes.
