Gluten Free Vanilla Cupcake Recipe


Serving: 2 Persons
Difficulty Level: Easy
Time Required: 40 mins


For The Cupcakes

  • 1/4 cup unsalted Butter
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cup Gluten Free Baking Flour/li>
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch Sea Salt/li>
  • 1/2 cup Milk/li>

For the Frosting

  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 3 cups powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • Pinch Sea Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Orange Juice or cream or milk


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F(175°C) and line a muffin tin with paper liners.

Step 2

To make the cupcakes, mix the butter and sugar in a large bowl with a fork. Stir in the egg and vanilla.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt.

Step 4

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir briefly, then add the milk and stir until smooth.

Step 5

Divide the batter between the muffin cups, filling each one a little over half full. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the cupcakes are domed and light golden. Transfer the cupcakes to a rack and cool completely before frosting.

Step 6

To make the frosting, beat the butter by hand or in a stand mixer until smooth. Sift in the powdered sugar. Add the vanilla, salt and juice and beat until smooth.

Step 7

Transfer the frosting to a piping bag fitted with a star tip (I use a 1M) and pipe a large swirl onto each cupcake. Alternately, you can just spread the frosting on with a spatula.

Step 8

If desired, top each cupcake with a candy egg. Serve right away or store covered at room temperature for up to two days.
