Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Cake Mix Cupcakes

It was pretty easy to make. Bag of cake mix, couple eggs, some vanilla, and I decided to add some chocolate chips. The batter was still lumpy, and I found there was no way to beat ALL the lumps out.

I made a dozen regular sized cupcakes and 5 mini ones with the leftover batter.
They turned out pretty good, I used white fluffy icing and sprinkles. There was no real chalky flavor which so many gluten free cakes have. They wern't very sweet though, so I would certainly not reccomend making them without the extra chocolate chips, or they wont have a whole lot of flavor.

3/5 stars for this one. I mean, you could tell they were gluten free, but they still were pretty tasty.

Hi There

I really don't hate gluten, it more that gluten does not like me.. At all. I have Celiacs Disease so I can't eat anything with that pesky gluten (ex. Wheat Flour, Rye, Barley, anything good, etc..), so I have decided to start a blog to try out some gluten free recipes, and also display my photos. I am not really a photographer but it is a passion of mine. Hopefully having to take more pictures will be good practice so i can improve and grow.

My Name is Laura, I live in St. John's and love it here. I'm 20 years old and I live with my two friends, wonderful boyfriend and currently 5 cats. Most of what I will be posting here will be things that Emma (one of my roommates and my best friend) and I will be making. Or pictures of our cats :).

I also love scrapbooking, nail polish and comic books.
