My Espresso Gluten Free Cupcakes are a firm favourite for entertaining.

First attempt at making a gluten free flour cupcake. I have made ones with almond meal and sunflower seed meal, but not with these prepared gluten free plain or self raising flour.

These are very light and super moist, I am very impressed with how they turned out, you wouldn’t have known any difference without the gluten to be honest.

Who doesn’t like a sexy chocolate cake?

Lighter in texture than the others.

Certainly and easy bake.

Happy Cooking
