About this Gluten Free Cupcake Recipe
I don't pretend to know anything about Gluten Intolerance or the health benefits of cutting Gluten from your diet sadly, I was simply asked to test out this recipe by Marks and Spencer recently as part of a review for my blog. And I must say I was very pleasantly surprised by just how great these gluten free chocolate cupcakes turned out. I had this idea in my head (call it naïve) that gluten free would taste different, or have a different texture at least to regular gluten cupcakes, but there was honestly no difference at all.
This recipe is super simple to make, it would be great if your looking for a recipe for the kids to help with too. And the end result is brilliant, the chocolate taste was so rich and moorish, and the frosting was amazing (obviously that could be used on any type of cake!).
They were possibly a tiny bit denser than regular cupcakes but that may also just be me not beating the butter enough, hand creaming is hard going so I would advise an electric whisk if you have one.
If you happen to have some general info on the benefit of cutting gluten from your diet please do leave it in the comments so I can learn a little more myself.

How to make your Gluten Free Cupcakes

- In a separate bowl sieve together the flour and cocoa powder, then gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet, folding the mixture together until combined
- Pop 12 cupcake paper cases into a cupcake baking tin and divide the mixture between the 12 cases. Then place in the centre of the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean, then place them on a cooling rack
