Gluten Free Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Are you a cupcake person? We’re very much a cupcake person. Cupcakes seem to be one of those polarizing treats that divides the best of us.

While some of us can’t get enough and jump for joy at the thought of cupcake ATM’s (yes those exist), the rest roll their eyes in favor of other sweets.

Whichever side you fall on we’ve got a cupcake recipe you’ll love.

There was once a time when ‘gluten free’ was synonymous with ‘dry’ and  ‘crumbly’ (not crumbly in the good way). Thankfully as time goes on and gluten free diets become more prevalent we’ve come a long way as far as baked goods go. Gone are the days of sad, dense, and grainy cupcakes that suck all the moisture right out of your mouth. Making soft and moist gluten free cupcakes are not only achievable, but easy too.

If you’ve ever been intimidated by the thought of gluten free baking then this recipe is made for you. There are no fancy tricks or ingredients needed – just your basic flour, sugar, butter, and eggs etc. The only equipment you need are your mixing bowls and an electric mixer – any stand or hand-held mixer will do. In no time you’ll be away in cupcake heaven.

These aren’t just really great gluten free cupcakes – they are really great cupcakes plain and simple.
