Super Moist Gluten Free Red Velvet Cupcakes

Posted on October 19, 2013 at 9:50 PM

 I haven't always been gluten free, it was an unfortunate discovery after I finished writing my first book! Funny thing is I never liked sweets until I became gluten free- how ironic that now I can't have them!  I also was never much of a baker while I was on the gluten trend!  Carbohydrates were my best friend especially Italian dishes!  You know what they say though- when a door closes, look around for the window!  Well that is kinda my life!  I have always loved cooking, so much so that I actually cook to cook - not to eat!  It is my passion, and to see the looks on the faces when taking their first bite brings me so much joy! I love to test new products and see what I can invent with them! 

This is one of my favorite gluten free cupcake recipes that I have made, maybe because it is red! :)  OR... maybe it is the frosting!  Anyway you make it this is one of those dishes that will bring a smile to your unsuspecting guests!


1/2 cup Jules gluten free flour (for the gluten free version) or for all others use all purposed unbleached flour

3/4 cup cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter, at room temperature

2 cups granulated sugar

4 eggs

1 ounce red food coloring

2 teaspoons vanilla

1/2 cup buttermilk preferably but I made it with regular milk

1 cup sour cream

½ cup chocolate chips

1 TBSP milk


Preheat oven to 350. I used a Mini muffin pan, and a square cake stone. Also I tested this recipe with some cupcake liners that you put on a cookie sheet or you can Grease three 9 inch round pans. Either way these are fabulous! You can also fold in some chocolate at the end for an extra surprise – I cut up some lindt tuffles. AMAZING!

Get two bowls. One for the dry and a larger one and for the wet ingredients. In the dry bowl- Sift flour, salt and baking soda, cocoa powder together and set aside.

Melt semi-sweet chocolate with 1 tablespoon of milk. Set aside but do not let harden..

Beat butter and sugar in a bowl together for approximately 5 minutes at medium speed. Add eggs one at a time and beat until smooth. Add the food coloring and sour cream, milk, vanilla and melted chocolate. At low speed add flour mixture a little at a time but do not over mix. You will have a fluggy consistency when you are done. Scoop directly into the pan of your choice and cook in oven at 350. If you make the mini cupcakes do not overcook- they only take about 8 minutes.

For the cake Bake in 350 oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until wooden pick comes out clean.

Creamcheese Frosting

8oz cream cheese softened

½ Cup Butter (1 Stick) softened

2 Cups confectionary sugar

1 Tsp Vanilla

In a bowl whip the cream cheese and the butter together till smooth and add the vanilla and the confectionary sugar. Once your cupcakes/cake is cooled top with frosting!


My kids love to find the chocolate surprises in the middle!  Myself, I love the frosting!  Please let me know how your's comes out!!  Feel free to ask me questions, comment and get involved!  Love to hear from you!
