It’s summer!!! And my creative baking side is in full force as we enter into the hottest months of the year. Each week I am working on new recipes and developing new ideas for baked goods that my family can enjoy (and that you can enjoy).
Although I prefer not to turn on the oven during the summer months, I couldn’t help but make these Gluten-Free Orange Cupcakes.
I love making cupcakes, and what better excuse to make cupcakes than my birthday? I don’t have a favorite kind of cake – all cake is my favorite!
I love everything from chocolate, vanilla, and lemon to these gluten-free orange cupcakes.
Because oranges are in season, I decided to whip up a batch of these gluten-free orange cupcakes to help me celebrate my big day.
It’s not a milestone birthday or anything like that, but I do like to have a reason to eat cupcakes.
This recipe makes 12 amazing cupcakes. If you want to make more, simply double the batch. I haven’t tried making this recipe into cake yet but when I do, I’ll update the instructions below.
These cupcakes are extremely easy to make. In less than 20 minutes of prep time and under 30 minutes to bake you will have delicious gluten-free, dairy-free, orange cupcakes.
They have a light citrus flavor. The longer they sit before eating, the stronger the citrus flavor. Orange zest has natural oils in it, that give these cupcakes their flavor, and just like when you bake with lemon, the flavor gets stronger with time.
