Wonderfully easy to bake, our gluten free cupcake recipe can be adapted to create a range of great tasting treats. Try adding chocolate chips, flavoured icing or toppings with delicious buttercream.

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180° (160°C fan, gas mark 4). Line a cupcake tray with 12 paper cupcake cases.

  2. Cream the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon or electric mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs, one at a time.

  3. Add the flour and mix lightly until well combined and then divide the mixture between the cupcake cases.

  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and just firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

  5. To make the buttercream, beat together the butter and icing sugar in an electric mixer, until smooth. Add a few drops of vanilla extract for flavour, and a splash of milk if needed to loosen the icing. Fill a piping bag, fitted with a star nozzle with your buttercream and pipe onto your cupcakes to finish.
