Gluten free cake recipe – makes delicious cupcakes

As with reduced sugar cakes I have blogged before about gluten free cakes however I have never included a recipe.  Each time I go to make a new batch I have to search through all my recipe papers (which need organising!) and hope I find the right one to use!

I have used this recipe for both cupcakes and cakes and I have found it to produce a lovely light cake, especially the cupcakes and the last batch I made were lovely – best batch to date!

I found this recipe at click the link to visit the page.

You will need :-

150g margarine

150g caster sugar

2 drops of vanilla essence

2 eggs

1 teaspoon baking powder (ensure it is gluten free, I use Dr Oetker)

150g gluten free self-raising flour

3 tablespoons milk.


Cream the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy

Beat in the eggs and vanilla

Fold in the flour and baking powder, then add the milk.

It may seem a little sloppy but this is fine.

Spread out accross 10 cupcake cases or place in small cake tin and bake at 190 degrees C for around 15 minutes or longer if in a cake tin.  I decorated with a small simple swirl of vanilla frosting.
