Starlight Vanilla Cupcakes

This is my most requested recipe. It has become our go-to for birthday parties and nobody can believe it is gluten-free, let alone grain-free!!  Full disclosure, I started with the traditional Betty Crocker recipe and tweaked it until it was right.


Starlight Vanilla Cupcakes

122 g Buckwheat/Coconut Flour Mix

2 tsp cream of tartar

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 cup beet sugar

1 large egg yolk

1/2 tsp vanilla

27 g coconut oil, melted

1 cup milk

1 large egg white, beaten until stiff


Preheat oven to 350 deg F.  Line 10 muffin cups.  Combine dry ingredients and set aside.  In large mixing bowl, cream together sugar, yolk, vanilla.  Add coconut oil and beat until mixture is homogeneous.  Add dry ingredients and milk.  Mix on low with hand-mixer on low for 10 seconds, increase speed and mix on high for 1 minute.  Fold in egg whites.  Fill 10 muffin cups and bake for 22 minutes.


For cake:

Grease and dust with buckwheat flour two 9″ round pans and line with parchment paper.  Double all ingredients and mixing time.  Divide cake batter into both cake pans. Bake for 33 minutes.
