Rich and moist chocolate chip cupcakes (EF, DF, SF, NF, *GF, vegan)

Fluffy chocolate Cupcakes with Grand Marnier Icing

When it comes to baking, working with gluten-free flour is the greatest challenge. I experimented with a flour I discovered not long ago- made from oats. I found it added a richness and fluffiness no other flour suitable for allergybabe could achieve. So here is my latest, and, so far, best recipe for chocolate cupcakes.

Ingredients:

100g  gluten free oat flour

100g gluten free bread flour (Doves farm)

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

50g caster sugar

1/2 tsp bicarbonate

pinch of salt

50g pear sauce

30g cocoa powder

100ml oat milk (*if you use rice drink#)

100ml sunflower oil

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 package of moo free chocolate chips

Method:

– Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Centigrade/Gas mark 5

– Place liners in a cupcake tray

– Sift the flours and salt into a bowl. Add the baking powder and the cocoa powder. Stir in the sugar.

– In a separate bowl, mix together the oat milk, bicarb, vanilla, pear sauce and oil.

– Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and gently mix, until well combines.

– Fold in the chocolate chips

– using a large nozzle, pipe the dough into cupcake liners and bake for approx. 23 minutes, until a knife comes out clean.

– Cool on a wire rack.

Can be enjoyed on its own or with an orange blossom icing (or try the grown-up version: Grand Marnier Buttercream Icing).

Enjoy!

# please be aware that rice drink is not recommended for children under the age of 5 due its arsenic content

    • Yes pear sauce is pureed pear, I usually buy it at waitrose in little containers (Clearspring organic). I prefer it to apple sauce since its flavour is a little less intense. I just got another pack of oat flour at the free from show. It is from http://www.bobsredmill.com, you can get it at wholefoods I suppose or Planet organic. Hope this helps 🙂

      • Oh yes have seen Clearspring; great idea. But am nervous of Bob’s Red Mill as the products all have nut trace warnings – apparently nuts are used in the same factory… :-/ Such a shame as they do some fab things

      • Yes that is True. About The oats flour and it is really Hard to get anyways… . Allergybabe is ok with it… . Can the little one have gluten? Try The recipe with regular flour… I just add The oats since The gf flour is very fine and The oats give a firmer structure. Hope this helps!

      • Oh Sorry, I did Not remember correctly… . Grinding it yourself seems like a Great idea. A Lot of effort. Really Hope now you like The result… !
