Artisanal Gluten Free Cupcakes

It’s been a while since I posted, and I’ve definitely been a busy lady. While I haven’t been practicing for the coming up Ratio Rally, I have been making far too many cupcakes. Earlier this month I received my copy of Artisanal Gluten Free Cupcakes. The size is the cutest thing, it’s perfect for a cupcake book. Already being the proud owner of Artisanal Gluten Free Cooking by Kelli and Peter Bronski. They’re such lovely people, and they’ve always been so kind to lend an ear for my gluten free baking troubles. Peter also offered his opinion on the new site design and gave some tips.

While I certainly don’t need all of the cupcakes I’ve been making, I just can’t help but try the recipes out for myself. The pictures are so tempting, and the book has such great detail in helping people to properly make their cupcakes.

So far I’ve made the Very Strawberry and the Crumb Cake cupcakes. I had a little trouble with the strawberry cupcakes because the berries were so juicy. But the cupcakes were still tasty! They’re just sticky. I ended up getting about 30 cupcakes out of the recipe instead of 24 because of how I measured. With the Crumb Cake cupcakes I got less than 24 because I made the first ones so huge!

I’m very happy with my purchase, and I’ll keep baking more cupcakes from this book! I have a big party next weekend I might have to bake another batch for.

You may find more success, as I did, if you weigh your flour by cup (and sugar too) instead of trying to go by volume. As I’ve said before, you will get much more consistent results if you bake by weight.

  1. Hi, Amanada- I’m coming to Maui shortly and would love to find some places to purchase local produce, GF baking. Any suggestions? We’ll be in Kihei and Kaanapali.

    Mahalo!

  2. Your cupcakes look fabulous to me, Amanda! Moist and sticky is much better than dry and crumbly. ;-) Like you, I am a big fan of Pete and Kelli’s–their blog and both their cookbooks. I think their cupcake bookbook is a delight in every way!

    Love your new look! I’m a big fan of blue and calming, and of course, every time, I see you blog name, Twitter handle, etc., I’m reminded of our fantastic 20th anniversary trip to Maui. :-)

    1. It is a total delight! I wasn’t a big fan of cupcakes before I bought the book, but now I have a love for them.

      Thank you for the compliment!

      I’m glad you’ve got such good memories from your anniversary trip.

  3. The Crumb Cake Cupcake looks delicious! It’s one of my favorites from the book. Having not eaten anything for more than 12 hours (long story, involving flight delays and airports), I could eat one of those cupcakes right off your blog! Glad you’ve been enjoying the book!

    Cheers, Pete

    1. It was so good! I took the crumb cake cupcakes to a Ham Radio Field Day, and nobody knew they were gluten free. They received rave reviews!
