A delicious gluten free cupcake recipe using rice and millet flour. The millet lends a bit of a cornbread taste to it. This could also be made into a 8 or 9 inch cake, or without the cocoa powder for a white cake.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 12 cup muffin pans or line with paper baking cups.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the rice flour, millet flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda, baking powder and xanathan gum. In a separate large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, sour cream, milk and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients until smooth. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, dividing evenly.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter.

Not a bad flavor for gluten free but the texture was way too chewy and a bit dry. I was looking for a good chocolate cake recipe to use for birthdays. Even with icing I was disappointed. I ended up using them as a shortcake with fruit and whip cream to really get them down.

The kids just loved it. I did not have xanthan gum so I used slippery elm; changed the sugar for 1 c of honey; and used almond milk. They were very moist and were gone very quickly!!! I cheated for the frosting and used some Nutella-like spread... Thanks for sharing

DELICIOUS! I made half a recipe, which made 24 mini cupcakes. I used Bob's Red Mill AP Baking Flour for the flour, Splenda instead of sugar, light sour cream and soy milk. I baked them 13 minutes, and they were perfectly done. Despite having no oil or butter, they were very moist and had a very nice texture. I'm sure no one would be able to tell they were gluten free. The only thing I would do differently is to spray the paper cupcake liners with Pam because they did stick a little. I'm sure I'll make these again.
