Table Talk » Chocolate Gluten Freedom Cupcakes

(About 30% of my clients have special diet requirements. The majority of those are gluten-free and have other food allergies.)

Today I cooked for Jayne’s family. Jayne is gluten-free and has other food allergies. She turns 10 this week so I made birthday cupcakes. The plan was that she would take the cupcakes to school to share with her classmates. But, after seeing and tasting the cupcakes, Jayne has other ideas. Her first choice is to keep the cupcakes for herself! Her second choice is to have them at her birthday dinner. She thinks that they are too good to share with her class. I wonder which plan will win out.


These beautiful cupcakes are a slightly modified version of the Chocolate Gluten Freedom Cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Rule the World. While Vegan Cupcakes is not a gluten-free cookbook, it has a few gluten-free recipes and since the recipes are vegan, they are perfect starting points for recipes for my clients who are allergic to dairy and eggs. I also made a modified version of the Vegan Fluffy Buttercream Frosting.

I’m thrilled with the taste, look, and crumb of these cupcakes and I’m looking forward to trying more recipes from this book. (How do I know that they were delicious? Well, I got 14 cupcakes from the recipe, one of the extras was for me to sample.

Today I finally remembered to ask Jayne about she shared these cupcakes with her classmates or kept them for herself and her family. She didn't bring them to school to share. They froze some of them so she could enjoy them longer.
