Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

gluten-free chocolate cupcakes

I often get asked if I can make a cake or cupcakes that does not have any wheat in it.  After a lot of trial and error I have come up with this recipe that I am going to share with you.  I have been told by my clients that these gluten free chocolate cupcakes taste just like a regular chocolate cupcake.

I have even been told that when clients have served these cupcakes to their guests, their guests did not even know that these were gluten free.  So why not give this simple recipe a try??!! :)

* please note this recipe will make 24 cupcakes or a double layer 9″round cake *


Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C)

Happy Caking!

    I loved this recipe and not the recipe seems to be missing, please bring it back! I had it bookmarked but hadn’t printed it or saved it anywhere. They were the best gluten free cupcakes!

    Made these on Friday using rice milk & dairy free margerineas I’m intolerant to dairy as well – superb, am going to try the big cake for my birthday on Friday. Thank you so much for sharing.
