Adventures in Cupcaking

Yesterday, inspired by Cupcakes, Coffee and Cocktails, I decided to try my hand at some cupcake creations.

Since I am trying to live Gluten-Free, I wanted to make goodies that I can eat. I found some Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Vanilla Cake Mix

Fresh from the oven!
Most of them turned out decent-looking enough....

on sale that I just had to put to some sort of use, so decided it would make a good base. I didn’t want to try just one kind of cupcake, of course, so instead I took little bits and pieces of the batter and added things to it.

I decided to try a variety:

  • Chocolate (adding 1 tbsp cocoa powder to 1/4 cup of mix)
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter (2 tbsp of the batter, 1/2 tsp of cocoa powder, and 1/2 tsp Peanut Butter)
  • Butterscotch (messy….)
  • and Peanut Butter (1/3 cup of mix, with 1 tbsp Peanut Butter).

I also tried a straight-up vanilla with a Peanut Butter M&M in it (to see what it would be like to have an M&M in it!) and vanilla with a Cherry-cordial Hershey’s Kiss in the middle.
