From cakes to cupcakes -- gfcf, of course

I like recipes that you can use in different ways. Cakes and cupcakes are an easy example. Sometimes my kids get tired of cake. I can see it on their faces. So, I'll use my "chocolate" cake recipe (carob) to make cupcakes. And they love it.

Here's my cupcakes:
- 1 "chocolate" (0r carob) cake recipe - click here for recipe
- muffin pan
- muffin liners

Simply pour the cake batter into the muffin liners, if you wish, or just into a greased muffin pan. I actually decrease the water in this recipe by 1/2 cup.

Just curious - I use pure cocoa - is there dairy in that? You're actually avoiding chocolate right, not just the dairy in chocolate?

Sorry if that's a dumb question!

Not dumb. Cocoa is fine, like Hershey's powdered cocoa for hot chocolate and stuff. One of our kids reacted to chocolate when she was younger. She has several food issues. So, to keep her healthy, we just cut out all the foods that gave her problems. Chocolate was one. We subbed using carob powder. So, I make our cookies and cakes, etc. with the carob. Now, we're slowly trying to reintroduce some of these foods, like chocolate to see if she can tolerate them. Hope that explains.
