Having a family member with allergies or food intolerances can make Christmas parties difficult. Often they go hungry, or are stuck eating carrot sticks whilst every one eats cake and pudding. The only one eating carrots at Christmas is Rudolph!
Sometimes a cupcake is all about the icing! These simple cupcakes are made super special with a big dollop of Cookie Dough Icing. There are 2 icing recipes available to suit all dietary needs.
Coconut Flour is the Gluten Free Flour used to make these cupcakes. Coconut Flour is unlike any other type of flavor and cannot be swapped for regular flours. Coconut Flour is really absorbent, which is why you don’t need to use much but you do need extra eggs and milk. The Cupcakes will not rise and dome like regular wheat flour but are really light and fluffy.
These Cupcakes are great for catering for many allergies and dietary needs. They are Gluten Free and Dairy Free if coconut milk is used. A liquid sweetener is used (this helps with the coconut flour) and the recipe is also Paleo friendly.Print
