Little background story:
A couple of weeks ago one of our family friends brought his new sweetheart to the house. I thought it would be nice to have some special treats ready for them. Well--no one was touching my mini chocolate and peanut butter cupcakes (seen below):
As I was about to force feed my new guest a cupcake she kindly tells me she is intolerant to gluten. AH! How mean is that?! I put a whole plate of cupcakes in front of someone who can't touch them! She comically referred to my cupcakes as "food porn" which was the best complement she could give without actually trying them. Well--I felt pretty bad about this so for her next trip I wanted to have some gluten-free goodies ready.
Well I did have some treats ready and it was so nice to have them over again for round two. Come to find out, Celeste is a bit of a foodie and has her own wonderful gluten-free blog, Sweet Tea and Wheat Free. What a great resource for those in the search of gluten-free!
The chocolate cupcakes with buttercream icing are all gluten-free. And in case it save you a phone call--all Betty Crocker sprinkles and decorations are gluten-free! The tea-cup cupcake holders are one of my favorites and are available here. Here is another shot:
The other recipe I made was a chocolate pound cake with peanut butter cream cheese frosting (yummy)! I had to serach but you some really yummy organic ingredients:
This recipe might you off at first--BUT, it was tasty and pretty good for you with a base of black beans and apple sauce! Definitely a runner food. The original chef has an online store, Gesine, when she sells her gluten-free baked goods. Certianly worth checking out.
This is what the loaves looked like before frosting:
Happy Gluten-Free Baking!
