GULTEN FREE + VEGAN CHOCOLOATE CUPCAKES


I whipped up some special cupcakes for a special occasion! These Anniversary Cupcakes tasted rich and decadent but aren't too naughty for the waistline... oh and there vegan aaaaaand Gluten Free. Its a miracle.
I did a little experimenting first....lab coat on and electric whisk plugged in. For my first recipe trial, I used chickpea gram flour and adapted a Babycakes recipe. For the second batch  I used only rice flour. The Babycakes recipe was very fudgey, I could just taste gram flour and didn't rise too well but...
After extensive taste tasting I was pleasantly surprised with how successful my rice flour cakes had turned out. they rose a treat, had a bouncy, spongy crumb and weren't too over overpoweringly chocolaty. WE HAVE A WINNER.
