I love cupcakes but then again who doesn’t! Today as we celebrate Celiac Awareness Day, I’d like to make sure you can make yourself some amazing cupcakes. This summer I made many of these wonderful recipes from Elana Amsterdam’s Gluten-Free Cupcakes: 50 Irresistible Recipes Made with Almond and Coconut Flour cookbook. There are so many great recipes in here it’s hard to choose, so just make them all.
One of our favorites that I make often are the Banana Cupcakes. It seems I always have a couple of bananas that get just a little too ripe so I keep the dry part of this mix in little bags in my refrigerator. This way I can mix up a batch fast in the morning to serve for breakfast. I however really enjoy sitting down with my banana cupcake and a cup of chai tea.
I of course had to make chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing. My absolute favorites. These of course did not last very long in this house. I heard lots of interesting excuses for eating more than one. Like “Hmmm, I ate it so fast I forgot to give you any feedback on the cupcake. I’ll have another one and eat it much slower and describe what I like.”
Like Elana’s first cookbook, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, the recipes have a short list of ingredients and are fast to pull together. However, most importantly to our house, they taste great.
These two cookbooks are must haves for any kitchen, but especially if your’s is a gluten free one.
Yes! Elana's two cookbooks are definitely "must haves" for any kitchen, gluten-free or not. I have both and they're favorites of mine. Please pass me a banana muffin. It's early here and that sounds like a perfect breakfast!
I love Elana's recipes and her cookbooks are a wonderful way to easily enjoy healthy and delicious almond and coconut flour based recipes. When I know Son is headed home, I immediately whip up a batch of her marble cupcakes (no frosting needed). 🙂 The banana cupcakes sound and look great! Why haven't I made those yet? Must remedy that soon as like you I always have over ripe bananas. 😉
