Sunbutter Cupcakes for Alistaire

For my little buddy, I would try anything, just so he can have a treat like the rest of us.

Giving him a cupcake that can give wheat ones a run for their money? Yeah, that felt awesome! Moist, light with that cupcake texture and yes, allergy friendly. No gluten, peanuts, nuts, eggs, dairy….just a lot of flavor! I was proud of these cakes, I took them to our neighborhood National Night Out this week. And they were all gone in minutes. Woot!

Sunbutter Cupcakes

Ingredients:

SB2

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°, line a 12 count muffin tin with papers (preferably Reynolds or Wilton).

Stir cider vinegar into milk, set aside.

Add Sunbutter to a stand mixer bowl (paddle attachment in place), beat for 2 minutes on medium.

Add oil, brown sugar, and vanilla, beat on medium for 3 minutes. Add in flax mixture, beat until combined.

Whisk flour, xantham gum, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Add the flour in slowly, in 3 batches, alternating with the milk, beat on medium until smooth.

Divide batter between the liners. Bake for about 22 minutes, until golden on top and a toothpick comes out clean in the center.

Let rest for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

Makes 12 cupcakes.

  1. Alistaire is so cute, and the cupcakes look nice too! 🙂

  2. Those look scrumptious!! And he is just too adorable!

  3. As a gluten free almost vegan, I am so excited about these! Yum!

  4. WOW! Talk about a delicious treat! I’m a baker on the side (yeah, doesn’t help with my weight loss…)…these are something I may have to incorporate!

  5. Gosh, he’s a cutie.

  6. Great looking cupcakes! I haven’t heard of Sunbutter before, sounds interesting, I’ll have to keep an eye out for it… Why the preference towards Reynolds and Wilton paper liners?

    • Doh! I forgot to add the “why” to that 😉 Anyhow, the premium liners they make release perfectly. No paper stick-on like you get with the regular paper liners. They have foil inside/paper on the outside – and they don’t bleed during baking, so look great.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
