Okay, so this has a little non-artisanal chocolate and more than a little sugar. But it’s gluten and dairy free so let’s call it evens. And hey it’s Easter.
IngredientsFor the cupcakes180g gluten free plain flour (Bob’s Red Mill gluten free 1-1 baking flour)160g sugar115ml vegetable oil115ml dairy free milk2 eggs1¾ tsp gf baking powder1 tsp vanilla bean paste1 tsp vanilla extract¼ tsp salt
For the frosting360g icing sugar115gms dairy free butter (room temp)½ tsp vanilla bean paste½ tsp vanilla extract2 tbsp dairy free milk
MethodFor the cupcakesPreheat oven to 170⁰C. Place 12 cup cake cases into fairy cake baking trays. Beat the sugar and oil together. Add eggs one at a time, beating in between each, then add the flour, milk, baking powder, salt, vanilla paste and extract. Beat until all is just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared cases until 2/3 full. Place in the oven and bake for appx 20 mins, until springy to touch / a skewer inserted comes out clean and they are slightly browned.
When they are ready, take out of the oven and allow to cool completely before frosting.
