Black Bottom Cupcakes
If I had to choose only one word to describe the following recipe, it would be, AMAZING! This is the second recipe in my tribute to Fall. These richly decadent cupcakes clinch the top spot for me as the number one Halloween treat. Why, you might ask? Well check out this photo, I see a ghost, do you? The taste, texture and presentation can't be beat, enjoy.
The Gluten Free Mommy shares a wonderful story in her blog post presenting this recipe and many others.
Recipe tip: When making most cupcakes I prefer to spray the tins with cooking spray rather than using muffin papers. I really like how they release from the tins.
BLACK BOTTOM CUPCAKES
1/2 cup of sorghum flour
1/2 cup of tapioca flour
1/2 cup of rice flour
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 tsp. of baking soda
3/4 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup water
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup oil
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1 12 oz. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, egg, sugar, and salt and beat well. Stir in chocolate chips. Set aside. Sift together all of the dry ingredients. Add water, vanilla, oil, vinegar, and mix well. Line cupcake tins with muffin liners and fill about 1/3 full with chocolate batter. Top each with a spoonful of the cream cheese mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Do not overbake!
Update: These freeze really well!
I love life and I love food. It is not surprising that as an adult I am writing about food. My favorite childhood books were about gigantic food, "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs", by Judi Barrett and "The Giant Jam Sandwich", by John Vernon Lord and Janet Burroway. Being diagnosed with celiac disease merely channeled what type of food I write about. Come join me on a gluten free adventure, and let's celebrate everything Gluten Free and You!
