Vanilla Cupcakes


This is from the POFAK message archives by Teresa S.

1/2 cup sorghum flour
1 1/2 tablespoons arrowroot powder OR 1 egg
1/2 tsp guar gum
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup water
3/4 tsp vanilla extract (make corn-free using a dash (1/8 tsp) ground vanilla instead)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake tin with paper liners (this will make 5 cupcakes). Mix (or sift) together the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the oil, maple syrup, water and vanilla all at once. Stir until mixed. Spoon into prepared cupcake tin. Bake for about 15-20 minutes. Cool completely before icing (or eating). These tasted very good, but were a little crumbly.
