Since I was diagnosed as gluten intolerant I’ve been experimenting with a variety of recipes trying to find a cupcake that tastes decent, and now I’ve found a recipe that doesn’t just taste decent…it tastes amazing! I eat clean the majority of the time but occasionally treat myself and now I know what I will be baking each time I fancy a treat. These cupcakes are so easy to make yet taste deliciously light and fluffy. The ingredients are: 250g gluten free self raising flour – I used Glebe farm flour 250g caster sugar 250g butter (room temperature) – I use a dairy free butter as I am slightly lactose intolerant, but any will work 4 eggs 1 tbsp vanilla extract/essence To make the (soft as a cloud) cupcakes: 1. Preheat the oven to 190C (Gas mark 5) and line the cupcake tin with cases 2. Place the butter and sugar into a bowl, then whisk until pale and fluffy 3. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring in a little flour after each egg using a wooden spoon 4. When all of the flour and eggs are combined, add the vanilla and stir to mix 5. Divide the mixture into the cupcake cases, then bake for approx 20 minutes until golden and risen 6. Remove the cupcakes from the tin and leave to cool NB. Fill the cases approximately half way so there is room for the cupcake to rise. A way to tell if the cupcakes are cooked is to gently touch the top with the tip of your finger – if the cake springs back up then they are done. To make the icing use royal icing sugar and follow the instructions on the pack dependent on how much icing you want to make. Then it’s time to make your cakes look pretty! I had to share this recipe as I was thrilled to have finally found a way to make gluten (and lactose) free cupcakes that I enjoyed. I can’t even tell the difference from ‘normal’ cupcakes. Obviously you don’t have to be living a gluten free diet to bake these, I urge you to try them on your next treat day. If you’ve never baked before then you may be reluctant to try this, but give it a go. You won’t regret it! For more healthy meal ideas, check out the BodyRock Meal Plan!
