Chocolate Cupcakes with Coffee Frosting (Gluten-Free)


Photo: CC/Rachel from Cupcakes Take the Cake)

I never had a desire to eat cupcakes, until I went gluten-free. And now that I can't eat them, I crave them like crazy. Of course, it doesn't help that cupcakery's are popping up everywhere as the new food craze. This is a cupcake recipe that is free of most common allergens. It is gluten-free, nut-free, corn-free and vegan. To also make this  beet/cane sugar-free I will be experimenting with this recipe using agave syrup in place of sugar. While I don't drink coffee, I am a sucker for coffee flavored sweets. However, if you are not a coffee fan, you can replace the coffee with chocolate, vanilla, or some other flavor that you prefer.

To make cupcake batter, whisk together the following:

  • ¾ rounded cup sorghum
  • ¾ rounded cup  tapioca starch  (you can also use potato or cornstarch)
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
 Add in and beat the following until smooth:
  • 1

    cup warm coffee (not too hot)
  • 2 teaspoons  vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon Egg Replacer, mix with ¼ cup warm water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon rice vinegar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12-cup cupcake pan with parchment or paper liners.
  1. Beat the batter for a full two to three minutes until all the ingredients are incorporated and the batter is smooth.
  2. Using an ice cream scoop, drop the batter into the cups and smooth the tops.
  3. Bake in the center of a preheated oven till done-approximately 20 minutes.
  4. Cool the cupcakes on a wire rack.
  5. Frost when completely cooled.
To Make Coffee Icing:
  • 1 ¾ cups confectioner's (powdered) sugar
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 3 ounces cold coffee, as needed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Starting with a small amount of liquid, beat the sugar to mix in the shortening, coffee and vanilla. Add liquid as needed.
  2. Beat  until smooth.
  3. For a thicker frosting add  more confectioner's sugar.
  4. Chill the frosting before using it, approximately 1 hour.
  5. Frost the cupcakes and enjoy!

I didn't make the cupcakes, but I did make the frosting and it was delicious.

Thanks for letting me know. My back hurts all the time

I had a pillcam done two and a half months after I went gluten-free and it only showed gastropathy. three and a half months before the pillcam and endoscopy showed damage consistent with celiac. That damage was after a 10 or 11 week gluten challenge. prior to that I was gluten-free for a ...

It works much better for me but everyone is different. I have a physical job and sometimes get lower back pain. A hot shower and an Aleve will usually relieve it. It's worth your giving it a try.

Is Aleve better than ibuprofen? My back pain doesn't budge with 800 mg Motrin.

When I was diagnosed, I had only anemia. That is it. Later I found that I had osteoporosis as a result of untreated celiac disease. There are over 200 symptoms attributed to celiac disease. You may have many or NONE at all (called silent). After going gluten free within months my anemi...
