Gluten-free chocolate cupcakes
INGREDIENTS

1 cup rice flour
¾ cup cornflour
1/3 cup cocoa
1¼ teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup buttermilk
125g butter, melted
2 eggs
1½ cups frozen raspberries
Whipped cream and cocoa powder, to serve
METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to moderate, 180°C. Line a 12-hole muffin pan with paper patty cases.

  2. Sift combined flours, cocoa and soda together into a large bowl. Stir in sugar.

  3. In a jug, whisk together buttermilk, butter and eggs. Fold into dry ingredients. Add raspberries and lightly mix.

  4. Spoon mixture evenly into patty cases until 2/3 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until cooked when tested with a skewer.

  5. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely. When ready to serve, slice tops off, top with cream, return tops and dust with cocoa powder.



Top tip
  • These cakes are also delicious topped with glacé icing. This can be made from gluten-free icing sugar, cocoa, a knob of butter and a little hot water, mixed together until a spreadable consistency.
