But, I must say, whenever other people get to eat desserts, and I don't, I get jealous.
I've made red velvet cupcakes, strawberry cupcakes, and chocolate cupcakes with great success, but I wanted just a basic vanilla cupcake.
I found what I was looking for...
Not only was this a delicious gluten free cupcake, but it might have been the best cupcake I have ever had!
Recipe from A Gluten-Free Guide
Please try it. Yall will thank me.
- 1 package Gluten Free Pantry Old Fashioned cake mix (don't follow the directions on the package)
- 1 package Jello vanilla instant pudding
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 extra large eggs room temperature
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 3/4 C orange juice
- 1 Tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons good vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the wet ingredients in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients and beat on high speed for two minutes.
Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners. Fill liners 2/3 to ¾ of the way full.
Bake for about 18 minutes, or until the cupcakes are golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
These cupcakes are perfection.
I gave some cupcakes to 5 people (who are not on a gluten free diet) for Valentines Day and 3 of them asked for the recipe!
