Everyone loves cupcakes. Cupcakes can come in so many flavors. One of the first things I missed when going gluten free was cupcakes. When we went gluten free, you couldn’t even buy a loaf of gluten free bread in stores, let alone find a good gluten free version of a cupcake. Times have changed and gluten free baking has evolved in so many ways.
Each cupcake here has its own unique frosting made with buttercream, cream cheese, or flavored icings. Some of the cupcake frosting recipes are flavored, others are more classic frosting recipes. You can easily interchange the type of frosting for any of these easy cupcake recipes.
These cupcake recipes are perfect for birthday parties, graduation parties, weddings, cookouts, bake sales, or anytime you want a treat.
Things You Need To Make These Cupcake Recipes:
There are so many gluten free flour blends on the market. I tend to be a creature of habit and I use the same four gluten free flour blends mostly. It doesn’t mean other brands of gluten free flour blends don’t work, I bet they would work nicely in my recipes, depending on the grain to starch ratio…I just haven’t used them. You can also see all of my Gluten Free Pantry Recommendations for more information and details on the different gluten free flours, and nut flours I like to use.

What makes cupcakes so moist?
The secret to moist cupcakes is all in the mixing. The same is true of muffins. When mixing your wet and dry cupcake ingredients together, it is critical not to overmix your cupcake batter. Mix until “just mixed” so the air bubbles are not deflated in the mixing. This will help your cupcakes turn out light and fluffy, and super moist!
Can long can cupcakes stay fresh?
Gluten free cupcakes will stay fresh for 2-3 days if you seal them in an airtight container. Don’t frost the cupcakes until you are ready to serve them. If you want to store them longer, I highly recommend freezing the cupcakes.
How do you freeze cupcakes?
To freeze cupcakes, wrap each individually in plastic wrap. Place the wrapped cupcakes into a freezer bag and freeze. To defrost, remove one from the freezer and allow to thaw. Frost when the cupcakes are thawed out.
How many cupcakes do your recipes make?
My cupcake recipes tend to make 12 cupcakes. If you need more than this, just double one of the recipes.
