I needed a gluten free flour substitute for all of my desserts and I finally found one!! These gluten free cupcakes turned out amazing! I'm so happy that I finally found a flour substitute that works great! And it's cup for cup so you can make everyone of my recipes, gluten free if you want!
You can also make these cupcakes dairy free by substituting the milk with almond milk. The cream cheese frosting could need to be converted to buttercream frosting and use Ghee instead of butter...but that's a whole other beast!

It's called Cup4Cup and you can buy it at Whole Foods, William Sonoma, and sometimes at Sur La Table and Trader Joes (call ahead.)

VANILLA CUPCAKES RECIPE:
Yields: 20 mini cupcakes

1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp gluten free flour
1/4 cup milk (or almond milk)

DIRECTIONS:
In your mixer, mix together both sugars and oil until combined. Then add in the vanilla extract, baking powder, salt, and egg and mix for another 15 seconds.
Next add in the flour and milk, and continue to mix on medium speed until all of the ingredients are well incorporated. Make sure to scrape down the sides all the way to the bottom of the bowl. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes. Let cool completely before adding the frosting.

BLACKBERRY JAM:
8 oz. package of blackberries, juiced (1 cup of juice)
