FAQ Gluten Free July 4th Cupcakes
Back in the day cupcakes were called 1234 cakes because the recipes back then were simply 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour, 4 whole eggs, 1 cup of whole milk, and 1 spoonful of baking soda.
The star tips are the most common. The more “closed” your star, the more definition in the lines of your swirls. You’ll want to use nice smooth icing for closed star tips because any resistance will clog and make it hard to pipe out. Closed stars will give you the “ruffly” look if they’re quite closed.
If you are baking cupcakes for your 4th of July party it is recommended one standard-sized cupcake per guest. If you are baking mini cupcakes, it is recommended two to three minis per guest.
For soft and moist cupcakes, use high-quality dairy products such as plain yogurt or sour cream, replacing buttermilk, sour cream, or milk. Substitute ingredients in a 1:1 ratio, but you should thin your yogurt and sour cream with water closer to the replaceable ingredient.
Baking fluffy, moist cupcakes is all about creating air bubbles in your batter that expand in the oven. Don’t overmix the cupcake batter. When using the electric mixer always mix on a low speed, stopping just as all ingredients blend.
A great hack for filling cupcake liners is to sprinkle rice in the bottom of the pan, then place the cupcake liner on top and fill with cupcake batter. Instead of the grease collecting at the bottom of your cupcake, the rice will absorb the excess moisture without burning.
After you take cupcakes out of the oven and have determined they are done, let them cool in the cupcake pan for five to 10 minutes. Then remove cupcakes from the cupcake pan. Place them on a cooling wire rack to continue cooling.
You can bake cupcakes up to two days ahead; arrange them (unfrosted) on a baking sheet, wrap the whole sheet with plastic wrap and store at room temperature. Frost before serving.
Gluten free cupcakes don’t refrigerate well or last as long. You can store gluten free cupcakes at room temperature or freeze them as soon as they are completely cool.
The best gluten-free flour blend for baking cupcakes is Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour. This mix, which has all recognizable ingredients (including sweet white rice flour, which is the main ingredient in mochi, a nice light, powdery, starchy flour that doubles as a binder), works incredibly well.
Gluten-free store-bought cupcakes tend to be more expensive due to the pricier flours and dry ingredients they contain.
