Gluten Free Fridays: Week 4- GF Cocoa Cupcakes

Hi y'all! It's Friday! Around these parts, that means that it's Gluten-Free Friday.  Today I will be sharing one of my "Cake Doctor-modified" recipes.  I have spoken about the Cake Doctor before.  She has wonderful tips and shortcuts for those days that we just don't feel like baking from scratch!  I must admit though, I normally make my own GF cake mix.  When I don't,  I use Betty Crocker's Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix.  Other than that I stick to making my own.  I also use certain tricks/tips I've shared with you before during my failed 30 days of Gluten-Free Living.  I say "failed" because I never made it to 31 days! Oh well, it happens.  :)

 Anyway, here is my modified "Cake Doctor" recipe for Cocoa Cupcakes.


1box GF Yellow Cake Mix (Betty or my own)

1/2 box GF Vanilla (Dry) Instant Pudding Mix (This helps make the cake more moist, I promise.)

1/2 Unsalted Butter- softened at room temp (Please DON'T use oil, TRUST me on this one!)

2tbsp of Unsweetened Premium Cocoa (Hershey's is Peanut/Tree Nut free, FYI.)

1/4c Sour Cream or Yogurt (I only use Low-fat Greek Yogurt since it adds protein.)

3 Large Free Range eggs

4tbs Orange Juice or Milk (I prefer the milk)

1tbs Pure Vanilla Extract


In a stand-up mixer with the paddle attachment, add butter, milk, yogurt, and vanilla- combine on low until just mixed.  Add eggs in one at a time, then slowly add dry ingredients.  Make sure you don't over-mix yet combine it thoroughly. Using a scoop, fill cupcake liners to about halfway.  Place in oven for about 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool thoroughly, then frost.  I recommend using cream cheese frosting for this cupcake, it's particularly delicious that way.

Again, if you are a blogger or reader that is living Gluten Free and would like to share a recipe for Gluten Free Fridays please email me at info(at)eveyscreations(dot)com for more info!
