It is so hard to find good gluten-free cupcakes so I obviously have had to play around with my cupcake recipe.

When I have tried gluten-free cupcakes they were yet to be the same as ‘normal’ cupcakes. I have tried quite a few gluten-free cupcakes and have tested a few different recipes for making gluten-free cupcakes.

This recipe is the best version of gluten-free cupcakes that I have discovered yet. If this changes then I will of course update you as soon as it does.

If you have a cupcake recipe that is gluten-free, then don’t hesitate to send it our way for us to test at Betty’s Bakes. You do so by emailing contact@betty-s-bakes.com or sending us a message on facebook or instagram.
