How do you make really good gluten free cupcakes?

Asked by zahava85 (131points) April 29th, 2008

My boss has celiac’s disease and I have to bake gluten free for the office. My cupcakes always end up feeling too dense when I use rice flour or other substitutes.

chickpea flour has a strong taste. You might do better with rice flour. It’s a 1:1 exchange and a bit more neutral. Also the texture will be a little more like “normal”.

Cup 4 cup is a good flour substitute. If your boss has celiac disease you hav to use a new cupcake pan and don’t use your mixer to make the cupcakes. Cross contamination can get him sick from kitchen equipment, even after it’s been washed.

Here’s more info on celiac cross contamination.
