I am a slave to sweets, I won’t lie. While it’s true that I try to stay away from sweets as much as possible, I will never EVER pass up a good gluten free cupcake, because cupcakes are my weakness. Who doesn’t love a moist and delicious cupcake? Making gluten free cupcakes from a mix just doesn’t do it for me, because most mixes are just not that good in my opinion, but I recently posted a homemade gluten free cake mix that is the best I’ve ever had, gluten free or not. I’m being real here. They are so moist and delicious that I woke up today with a serious cupcake hangover – after which I swore them off – until next time.
To test this cake mix, I just HAD to make cupcakes, so I decided to do something with chocolate and peppermint because:
1. I had peppermint extract in my cabinet 🙂
2. I didn’t post for St. Patrick’s Day because it was my daughter’s birthday – and family is too important to me to even try to focus on anything else – especially on holidays and birthdays
It’s a few days late, but here is my recipe for Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes with Peppermint Buttercream Icing, made from this gluten free homemade cake mix – Happy #StPackricksDay!
