easy gluten free cupcakes

if you are looking for an easy fail-safe cupcake recipe, then this post is for you! many of you might be considering baking for the holidays, a birthday party, a baby shower, or just for fun. if the last thing you have time for is baking, then this is definitely the recipe for you because you can whip these up in under an hour! 

this recipe is also great because it uses minimal ingredients. for those of you who are not celiac, or gluten sensitive, but you want to bring gluten free baking to a party where there are celiac and/ or gluten free guests (good for you!), then this recipe makes perfect sense, since it uses minimal ingredients. many of the complaints I hear from the non-bakers, and especially non-celiacs, is that gluten free baking requires many ingredients that might not be available at common grocery stores, or used again in your baking; ingredients like sorghum flour, xanthan gum, double acting baking soda, etc. if you are not gluten free yourself, and you are baking for someone else, remember to keep your baking area and baking utensils clean from any gluten, follow our entertaining best practices guide here.

the cupcakes are made with Pamela's Products classic vanilla cake mix, and a cream cheese frosting recipe I found on the Canadian Living website. the best part is that I actually found decorative sprinkles that are gluten free too! here is the recipe for the cupcakes, shown in the photo, which I made for my daughter's first Christmas pageant!


vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (with colorful sprinkles!)

cupcakes:
1 package of Pamela's Products classic vanilla cake mix
3 large eggs
1/4 cup of oil
1/2 cup of water

-follow package instructions
-mix together until smooth, and fill cupcake liners 3/4 full
-bake at 350 degrees for 18-28 minutes
-makes approximately 14 cupcakes

frosting:
1/4 cup (50ml) of cream cheese softened
1/4 cup (50ml) of butter softened, try Avalon Dairy's organic butter, it contains no color
1/2 tsp. (2ml) of vanilla, read here for more information on vanilla extract and gluten free
1-1/2 cups (375ml) of icing sugar, try Wholesome Sweetener's organic icing sugar

-in a bowl beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth 
-beat in the vanilla
-add in the icing sugar in two additions and then beat until smooth
-makes enough frosting for 12 cupcakes
-add natural colors for fun!

I frosted the cupcakes with a pastry bag that I bought at Yokoyaya for less than five dollars, and it came with four tips. it couldn't be easier, and they look so pretty! I found the gluten free sprinkles at Choices Market in Yaletown, but I am sure they are available at all the Choices Markets. the brand is Let's Do...Sprinkelz which makes three flavours: confetti (shown in photo), chocolatey, and carnival. they also make gluten free ice cream cones and sugar cones!

enjoy!  Andrea.
