Chocolate Cupcakes with Cinnamon-Vanilla Frosting


The cupcake recipe is from Bob’s Red Mill.  I was on the hunt for a new cupcake recipe and didn’t find too much right away.   I went on Bob’s Red Mill site and looked to see if he had any and found this chocolate cake recipe instead.  I figured why not just make cupcakes out of this cake recipe.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Cinnamon-Vanilla Frosting

Add coffee and mix until thoroughly blended. Pour into prepared cupcake pan and bake for 20 minutes minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Serves 16.

Bob’s Red Mill stopped selling their gluten free oats for a while so I had to make my apple crisp with out them (I used slivered almonds instead). I was just on their website and they are back! So I ordered some…hopefully I’ll get them before next Wednesday so I can make myself some apple crisp for Thanksgiving.


I don’t have any of my own pictures to post yet but this weekend I made my first loaf of gluten free bread. And the best part…its not as bad as it sounds, actually its really tasty.

I bought a bag of bread mix from Bob’s Red Mill and thought I would give it a try and I’m happy I did. I just ordered some of their other products and can’t wait to give them a try!
