Gluten Free double Choc Cupcakes


These cupcakes are filthy naughty.  They taste amazingly decadent!  They are however not really the healthiest, the only “good” thing about them is that they are gluten free.   This is the type of food that I avoid baking because I know I’m going to end up having more than a taste test😁.  Great for a special birthday treat or something like that.  In fact I made these to take to my father in laws birthday afternoon tea.  He is a coeliac….and needless to say I scored a few more brownie points hehehe.


2 cups GF  self raising flour

1/4 cup cocoa

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

250g chocolate chips

1/3 cup oil

1 cup milk

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

How To Do It:

Preheat your oven to 180c and line a 12 cup muffin tray.  In a large bowl sift the flour and cocoa.  Add in the sugar and Choc chips, and give it a mix.  Meanwhile in a jug whisk your egg and combine with the oil of your choice, milk and vanilla.  Add this wet mix into the bowl, and stir thoroughly to combine.  Spoon into your prepared cupcake cases, and bake at 180 for about 25- 35 minutes. For the icing: 125g butter About 2 cups pure icing sugar 1 heaped tbs cocoa 1 tsp vanilla 1tbs milk Whip up the butter until light and fluffy.  Sift in the icing sugar and cocoa.  Then add the milk and vanilla.  Play around with these ingredients until you get your desired consistency.  Then pipe onto your cooled cupcakes and top with extra chocolate chips.

*These cupcakes can easily be made dairy free.  Use dairy free Choc chips and any milk you like instead of a cows milk.  For the icing, a Nuttelex butter substitute works great as well.

  1. Wow, those look and sound amazing! I’ll have to make them when I have other people around to share them with! They look like they’d be lethal for me to make when I’m alone.
