Hi and welcome back.
I hope you are all having a lovely summer and enjoying time spent out in the sun with friends and family. I enjoy this time of year for that reason. One thing I love to do is take a treat for us all to enjoy when we are out and about. When I was a child, my mum would regularly make chocolate chip cupcakes as a way to thank my aunt for looking after us over the summer. With the warm weather ending, I found myself reminiscing about these tasty treats and wondering if I could create a gluten free version. I used to find my chocolate chips would sink and the cakes would become hard and crunchy on top where I had over-baked to counteract the melted gooey chocolate mess left at the bottom. Finally I got the recipe right so today I am sharing my Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cupcake recipe. I hope you enjoy. C. -x-
