AC Cupcakes

This recipe was made to order for my son. I asked my family what fruit they wanted in a fruitcake. My son's reply was apples & cherries - only those two. With a hint of cinnamon & vanilla these AC cupcakes are delicious.   



175 g Bakers' Magic Gluten free flour

35 g Potato starch

1 tsp Baking powder

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Salt

150 g Caster sugar


200 g Glace cherries

200 g Oil (I use Rice bran oil)

2 tsp Vanilla essence

3 eggs

2 Large pink lady apples


Maize starch = Cornflour from maize/corn and potato starch is sometimes labelled as potato flour. For more information go to Maize starch vs Cornflour.



Preheat oven to 170 C.

Line a muffin tin with 12 patty cake papers.

Sift/mix together the dry ingredients into a bowl.

Roughly chop the cherries & add them to the dry ingredients. If you have whole cherries in the mix they will fall to the bottom - my children wanted this to happen.

Peel both apples - finely grate one & chop the other into little chunks.

In another bowl mix together the oil, vanilla, eggs & apple.

Pour the wet mix over the dry mix & stir to combine.

Spoon the mixture "equally" into the patty cake papers. 

Bake for approximately 25 mins.

Makes 12.

Simply enjoy!
