Do you, someone in your family, or a special friend have so many allergies making it seem impossible to eat anything with the word cake in it? These must try Gluten-Free, Egg-Free-Dairy-Free Cupcakes are just what you need.
If you read my blog or even if you know my family, you know how bad my son’s allergies are. There are many things that Luke can’t have; Dairy, eggs, gluten, wheat, sweet potato and until recently, rice. Making it extremely hard when it comes to baked goods.
This is where my good friend Sylvia aka “Slater Cake” comes into play. Sylvia makes the most amazing/moist baked goods you can think of. When she told me she was going to come up with something for my boy I was overwhelmed with joy. It’s so rare that we find something that he can eat like this that is not stale. She invited me over to decorate the cupcakes and have fun with the boys. Decorating for Nolan and cupcakes for Luke.
Nolan had such a great time. Luke tried to help, and Nolan made such a big mess!
3 Tbsp of cocoa
1 cup of sugar (granulated pure cane sugar)
1 Tsp of baking soda
1/2 Tsp. white vinegar
1 Tsp of pure vanilla extract
5 Tbsp of vegetable oil
1 cup of water
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Start by mixing all dry ingredients (flour, cocoa, sugar and baking soda)
Add vinegar, vanilla and vegetable oil and last water before mixing.
Mix until smooth and should have a very liquid constancy.
Pour batter into cupcake cups evenly.
Bake for 18 min.
Take out of the pan when finished to cool down so it does not overcook in a hot pan.
Sylvia might have forgotten how messy small children can be.
They look delicious! Thanks for sharing that recipe, I'm lactose intolerant so I'm always looking for dairy fre recipes!

My niece is highly allergic to eggs and so I've had my fair share of desserts with no eggs. I'm not a huge fan of them but I think it's because I'm so used to all the extra ingredients. I will pass this recipe to her!
Fabulous that people who are intolerant to all these foods can still have a sweet treat 🙂
I don't mind that they're GF, DF with no sugar – but do they taste like good ol' chocolate cupcakes? Your kid on the left looks like he's diving right in, so that must mean it's good 🙂

Aww, I love the pictures of your two little guys helping make the cupcakes! Wow these actually look pretty good. I am always on the lookout for good dairy free recipes. Being lactose intolerant is my plague.
They look like they're thoroughly enjoying them! I'm surprised at how liquid the batter looks but how big the cakes get! Amazing

How awesome that you found some great treats for him.
How cool that someone tried to help you make interesting treats for your kiddies! The world is full of generous people and it looks like our guys really liked them! Were you able to ice them anything?
Yum, looks good! I will have to try this! 🙂
I couldn't imagine having a child who was allergic to so many things. I'm glad to hear that these cupcakes are okay for him, though!
Amby Felix says
That's really great to have a friend help you out with this! I bet they're super yummy!
These look good! I will have to pass this recipe to my friend she recently was diagnosed with a gluten allergy.
So cute, I can't wait until I can start baking with my kids as well!
