Delicious GF Cupcakes!

By Christina on 02 May 2009 | Viewed 30472 times

The yummiest, moistest cupcakes you’ll have since you went GF.

Not my recipe, but found it here:

So good, recently made for a kid’s birthday party and was asked for the recipe without people realising they were gluten free!  Also, no butter in the recipe reduces potential guilt trips!  Nonetheless, remain moist and delicious for several days after baking (if in airtight container).


1 cup (250 mL) granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups (310 mL) brown rice flour mix (I used Totally Gluten Free Bakery’s flour mix)
1/4 tsp (1.5 mL) salt
1 1/2 tsp (7.5 mL) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) xanthan gum
1/2 cup (125 mL) canola oil
1/2 cup (125 mL) milk
1 tsp (5 mL) pure vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 F/180 C. Position rack in centre of oven. Place cupcake baking liners in a 12-cupcake baking pan. Beat sugar and eggs in large bowl of electric mixer at medium speed for one minute. Add flour, salt, baking powder, xanthan gum, oil, milk and vanilla; beat at medium speed for one minute. Pour batter into prepared pan. Place in centre of oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until centre springs back when touched and cupcakes are very lightly browned (bake about 35 minutes for nine-inch round, 40 minutes for eight-inch round). Cool on rack for five minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan onto rack and cool completely before icing. Top with your favourite frosting.

Do you think these would work if i used my gluten free flour mix containing rice flour, tapioca flour and potato flour?

As i don’t have a brown rice flour mix

This is an amazing recipe. I make it all the time and nobody knows they are GF. In fact people who don’t know they are GF compliment me on how yummy they are.

New to the world of gluten free baking and having a number of “fails” to date I am very very impressed with this recipe. Just to make it easier for some the ratio for the Brown Rice Flour mix is: 2 parts extra fine brown rice flour, 2/3part potato starch, 1/3part tapioca starch. Makes 12 gorgeous fluffy cupcakes 5/5 kapai!
