Dessert Gluten Free Recipes

Lemon Cupcakes



1 1/2 cups and 3 Tbsps all purpose flour or gf flour

1 cup white granulated sugar

1 Tsp Salt

1 Tsp Baking Soda

Zest of one lemon

1/2 lemon juice

Just under 1 cup of water

5 Tbsp Canola oil

1 Tsp Vanilla

1 Tsp White Vinegar


Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, add all dry ingredients and whisk. Zest your lemon and add to the bowl. Take a Pyrex measuring cup at least two cup size. Squeeze your half of a lemon into that measuring cup then fill up with Reverse osmosis water up to the 1 cup line and add to the dry mix. Then add oil, vanilla, and white vinegar. Mix well. Scoop into the lined cupcake tin using a level cupcake scooper (I love the one I have from Pampered Chef). Bake in the oven at 350 Degrees for 15-17 minutes depending on your altitude. Once cooled, ice with a lemon icing.

Lemon Icing:

1/2 cup of Earth Balance Red tub or stick butter (non-dairy, non-soy)

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1 Tbsp lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups confectioner’s sugar

a few drops of yellow dye

In a kitchen aide mixer; add butter, vanilla, lemon juice, and powdered sugar and whip until well incorporated and fluffy. Taste and adjust if needed. Decorate as desired with a fancy tip and sprinkles or lemon wedges as seen above. Enjoy!

I am a mother of two Allergic kids, one of whom is severely allergic to Dairy, Eggs, Peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish, moderate to Soy and coconut. I have had to learn how to cook a lot from scratch in order to have food in my home that is safe for my family to come in contact with and to eat. I personally don't want anyone to feel left out ever and I especially don't want my children to not be able to enjoy at least some of the same foods just because they are allergic to basic ingredients. So with some good motivation I have taught myself how to cook and bake and I have come up with some great recipes to share with the world. I want to make it easier on other people in similar positions. Hopefully I can help other people to be able to also enjoy foods that previously would have been thought to have been off limits.
