How to Make GF Vanilla Cupcakes with Mocha Icing

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a 12-cupcake tin with paper or parchment liners.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk the flour, starch and dry ingredients together. Add in the non-dairy milk, eggs or egg replacer, coconut oil, vanilla and lemon juice. Beat with a mixer until the cake batter is smooth. Do not over-beat.
  3. Using an ice cream scoop, plop the batter into the twelve liners. Smooth out the tops with wet fingers.

    Bake in the center of a preheated oven until firm and dome shaped. For me this took about 15-18 minutes at sea level but they may take up to 20 to 22 minutes, depending upon your particular oven and altitude.
  4. Cool the pan on a wire rack briefly, then gently pop out the cupcakes and continue cooling on a rack (this avoids steaming the bottoms).

    Make your icing as follows.
  5. Dairy Free Mocha Icing:

    Starting with a small amount of liquid, beat the sugar and cocoa powder to incorporate the shortening, coffee and vanilla. If you need more liquid, add a small amount at a time. Beat for two minutes or so until smooth. If you need to stiffen the frosting, add a little more confectioner's sugar.
  6. Chill the frosting before using it. I chill it, covered, for roughly an hour. Frost the cupcakes. Cover in an air-tight container until serving. best eaten the first day. If making ahead of time, chill frosted cakes briefly in the freezer before wrapping individually and freezing.
  7. Cook time: 1 hour Yield: Serves 12
