    Here’s my standard “wacky cake” churned through the de-glutenizer.

    Makes 10 Cupcakes

    Into a large bowl mix well:

    1 cup oat flour

    1/2 cup white sorghum flour

    1/3 cup Fair Trade cocoa powder

    scant 3/4 teaspoon xantham gum

    1 cup unbleached granulated sugar

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Into another bowl add:

    1 cup cold water

    1/4 cup canola oil

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

    a handful of Fair Trade chocolate chips

    Preheat oven to 350F and place ten cupcake liners into a large cupcake pan.

    Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and blend well with a big whisk. Beat out all of the lumps, then stir in the chocolate chips (if using).

    Using a small scoop, distribute the batter evenly into each liner, filling them about 3/4 full (just about to the top), then smooth the tops with a spoon.

    Bake until the cupcakes come clean with a toothpick, about 20-25 minutes.

    Cool for ten minutes, then remove from the pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.  Frost or stuff with Creme and then frost.

    Anyway to make these without refined sugar? :) Thanks! They look amazing!

    • I made these twice, once with 1/2c sucanat and 1/2c coconut sugar and once with 1c erythritol. Both batches were good, not overly sweet but a little on the dry side, so you have to make sure to cover them when they are still slightly warm out of the oven and keep them wrapped tightly. I’m going to try them one more time adding some applesauce for more moisture and a smoother batter :)
      Thanks for the recipe!
