Gluten free Cupcakes

cake, Ekadasi

Gluten -Free cupcakes are really easy and yummy at the same time. In our Vaishnava tradition we have monthly Grain-free days and these are just really easy. Somehow on those days we want to eat more. I make these the night before for our kids to take to school in their lunchbox and they are super content with these cupcakes. I have many memories about buckwheat cakes and this recipe makes a really delicious cupcake ( i promise). The buckwheat taste is really not overpowering and its light.

There are many ways to create different flavours, but for these ones I used frozen berries.

Glutenfree Ekadasi Cupcakes

  • 2 cups buckwheat flour
  • 2tsp baking soda
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups apple sauce
  • 1/2 yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • (optional) 1/2 cup frozen berries)

Preheat your oven on 180 degrees. Meanwhile mix all your dry and wet ingredients separately. Combine everything well. Place cupcake liners in your muffin-tin. Spoon the batter in (Tip: use ice cream scoop).

Bake for approx 20/25 minutes.

Tip:   Just stick a toothpick into the center of your cupcake. If there is wet batter still on the toothpick, it needs more time in the oven. If it comes out clean, your cupcake is done!

And!! I have a donut oven tin, so I made Ekadasi Gluten free donuts, without the berries.

Happy Holidays!
