Gluten free red velvet cupcakes are made with beet for a beautiful red colour. Fermenting the flour ahead of time with buttermilk makes it a richer and more flavourful cake. Perfect for cream cheese frosting.




Remaining Ingredients


  1. Fermenting is optional, however, it does improve the flavour and texture of gluten free baked goods. To ferment the flour ahead of time, mix the flour and buttermilk in a glass bowl. Cover with a tea towel and allow to rest in a warm location for 12-24 hours.
  2. When ready to bake, mix the butter, eggs, vanilla and grated beets into the batter. Mix until smooth.
  3. Then mix in the remaining ingredients.
  4. Bake in a 350F oven until a cake tester comes out clean. It will take approximately, 18-20 min for cupcakes or 25-30 min for a cake.
  5. Allow to cool, then frost with a healthy cream cheese frosting.
