Making Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

img_4512Today, I was flipping through my “Vegan Cookbook for Beginners” and found the recipe for Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes. Considering that my younger sister has celiac disease I thought this would be an interesting recipe to try out.

What the recipe calls for:

(the measurements in ( ) I added to indicate what you would need for half of the recipe)
  • 1¾ cups (½ cup 6 tbsp) of Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
  • ¾ cup (6tbsp) of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2 (1) teaspoons of Baking Soda
  • 1 (½) teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • 2 (1) cups of Evaporated Cane Juice (in other words Organic Cane Sugar)
  • 2 (1) cups of Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • ½ (1/4) cup of Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1 (½) tablespoon of Distilled White Vinegar
  • 1 (½) teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 4 (2) tablespoons of Warm Water
  • 1 (½) tablespoon of Ener-G Egg Replacer
