These Gluten-Free Vanilla Bean Cupcakes are dairy-free, simple to make, and lend a bakery style texture and a vanilla bean finish. You can bake up a batch of these perfect cupcakes in no-time.
Rodelle Vanilla Paste is my newest favorite item to bake and cook with. Now that I’ve tried it, I may never go back to extract again. It has such a deep, rich flavor and it’s never too much. I do love Rodelle’s Vanilla Extract, but the paste is dreamy, especially in these Gluten-Free Vanilla Bean Cupcakes.
I have been working on perfecting my vanilla cupcake recipe for almost two years. It’s not that it’s a complicated recipe or anything. I usually work on new recipes, not improving old ones. My old cupcake recipe was fine, but I wanted a better texture. I wanted it to be fluffy and crumbly at the same time.
I made these Gluten-Free Vanilla Bean Cupcakes a couple of times in January for one of my daughters birthday’s. Finally the last time I made them I found the right amount of ingredients to get the exact flavor and texture that I had been dreaming about. From frosting to cake, they are now perfect. They are buttery (even though dairy-free), tender, crumbly, and have the perfect amount of vanilla.
Of course I give full credit for the amazing, smooth, vanilla flavors to Rodelle’s Vanilla Paste. Their vanilla paste brings these vanilla cupcakes to a whole new level.
