Peanut Butter Spice Cupcakes

These are gluten free, sugar free, vegan and I can personally vouch for them being YUMMO!!

I have been craving sweet things lately and was in the mood to create myself a delicious alternative to the gluten-packed cakes that I have all of a sudden been drawn to. It’s just too easy – when I am the only gluten-free eater in the household – to tell myself it won’t be that bad this time and to take the quick temptation of that standard carrot cake! But when I have one of these little Peanut Butter Spiced lovelies on hand, suddenly my mind becomes clear and I can remember again just how horrible the gluten is going to make me feel, and the choice to do the right thing becomes simple! It reminds me of a line my mother gave me: ‘Supply, don’t deny’ – and it is very true, of much more than just food. πŸ™‚

2/3 cup soy or other non-diary milk

1/3 cup vanilla soy yogurt

1.5 tspns vanilla extract

1 cup millet flour

1/2 cup tapioca flour

1 tblsp stevia

2 tblspns cocoa

3 tspns gf baking powder

pinch of salt

2 tspns mixed spice

4 tbspns vegan margarine

Preheat oven to 175 C. Lay out paddy cases in muffin tray & grease. Whisk together all wet ingredients until well combined. Slowly add butter, followed by dry ingredients while mixing. Continue to mix until a smooth batter is formed. Spoon out batter into paddy cases and bake for 10-15 mins. Wait for them to cool completely before applying buttercream.

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/3 cup vanilla soy yogurt

2 tbspns butter

1 tblspn stevia

1 tspn vanilla extract

Whisk all ingredients together until completely combined and the buttercream is a uniform colour. Using a spatula, ice your cupcakes with a good generousΒ dollopΒ of icing!

A big thank you to Rose Levy Beranbaum for her inspiration in Rose’s Heavenly Cakes for this recipe!
