Just because something is gluten free, that does not mean that it will not taste good. These sweet cupcakes are flavored with coconut (both coconut juice and shredded coconut are in the batter), and contain sorghum flour, cornstarch and guar gum instead of cake flour. The rest of the ingredients, including buttermilk, almond extract and vanilla extract, are identical to those in “standard” gluten-filled cupcakes. The frosting is a homemade cream cheese that is topped with almonds – and little more shredded coconut, if you so desire.
If you have food allergies, your options for dessert (let alone standard meals) are extremely limited. After all, baking a tasty egg-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and rice-free dessert can be tricky. Thankfully there are plenty of recipes like this one that fit that mold. These cupcakes taste like an orange creamsicle, only without all of the harmful things that a real creamsicle contains. Instead, enjoy this allergen-free cupcake with orange zest on top.
