Just looking at this gorgeous gluten free salted caramel chocolate cupcake begs the question of “how many delicious flavors can you fit into one cupcake?” In fact, I’m pretty convinced that these gluten free Salted Caramel Chocolate Cupcakes are one of the best things that will ever cross your lips. The salty, the sweet, the creamy, the spongy, the drizzly — it’s all here folks.
These moist gluten free chocolate cupcakes would be delicious topped with any other frosting you love, but allow me to recommend my new favorite vegan Salted Caramel Frosting & Sauce as a top contender! And the presentation, when drizzled with homemade salted caramel sauce … MMMmmmmmmmm! Difficult to resist, I can promise you that!
By the way, I added gluten free beer in my cupcakes to round out the flavor, along with cocoa, brown sugar, vanilla and coffee. You won’t believe how delicious these ingredients are in concert together. You just have to try it! I originally used Coors® Peak Gluten Free Lager* but since it’s no longer available, either check my Gluten Free Beer Tasting Notes to find another option, or simply use gingerale or root beer.
Regardless, I know you will love these cupcakes because there’s just no craving they don’t satisfy.
Preheat oven to 350°F (static) or 325°F (convection).
Melt butter or other alternative, then stir together with sugars in a large mixing bowl. Add coffee, coconut milk, gluten-free beer, eggs and vanilla, whisking to thoroughly combine.
In a separate bowl, whisk cocoa, gfJules™ flour, baking soda and sea salt, then slowly stir into the larger bowl of liquid ingredients. Whisk together for another 1-2 minutes, until smooth and lighter.
Line 12 muffin cups with cupcake papers, then fill 2/3 cup full with batter. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, or with only a few crumbs, not wet batter, attached.
Once cooled, frost with Salted Caramel Frosting and top with Salted Caramel Sauce, or use another frosting to suit your tastes.
I hope you love this decadent recipe as much as we do!
Pin it for later!
