These gluten-free and dairy-free vanilla cupcakes from Cooking Gluten Free are a classic sweet treat. The cupcake batter is made from a combination of flours including almond flour and cornstarch. They are light, not overly sweet and delicious. These cupcakes are great for any occasion and will soon become a family favorite.
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Earth Balance (vegan) butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Set out butter to bring to room temperature. If needed, put in the microwave for just a few seconds.
Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then, add the eggs one a time scraping down the bowl as necessary. This helps the cupcakes have a more even texture.
Alternate adding the flour mixture and milk alternative in about 3 additions. I've read that you alternate the wet and dry ingredients to reduce the amount of gluten that is formed to make whatever you are baking less dense. But I still like this technique and it helps get a smooth batter with less mixing.
Line a muffin tin with baking cups and fill each cup 3/4 full. My batter made 9 cupcakes.
