Gluten free chocolate cake mix

It was my husband's birthday yesterday and even though he's gone gluten free, I still wanted to make him his favorite birthday treat- chocolate cupcakes! This is what I came up with...

Gluten free chocolate cake mix (single use)

3/4 cup rice flour
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup corn starch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

What else you'll need

1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water
2 eggs

Combine mix with wet ingredients and blend well.

I baked mine into cupcakes. Baking times will vary depending on pan size, but bake at 350 F.

These were delicious! I didn't even need to frost them (although mainly that was to keep the sugar levels down for the kids...)

They were a perfect little birthday treat.

Lemon Cranberry Muffin Mix

It was too cold to go outside today so we all stayed inside watching movies, trying out our new juicer and baking. I remembered how delicious my lemon cranberry cookies were so I decided to try something similar like...

Lemon Cranberry Muffin Mix (single use)

1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon dried lemon peel
1/4 teaspoon salt

I made mine into a jar gift, although it's a little late for Christmas presents. Next holiday maybe?

What else you'll need

1/3 cup water
1/4 cup oil
1 egg
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Combine wet ingredients and blend, then stir in mix.

Spoon into paper muffin cups and bake at 350 F until tops begin to turn golden.

Delicious and easy!
