Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes

When I’m planning for a birthday party at the house, I usually find myself getting carried away with organizing the house and can hardly find the time to bake a full table full of desserts. Plus, I must admit that I am anything but a pro baker, so cupcakes are usually my go-to dessert to bake. There relatively mess free and far simpler to decorate quickly, not to mention I can’t be judged nearly as much for my questionable skills with an icing bag.

Whether you admit it to yourself or not, you can definitely taste the difference between a batch of homemade cupcakes and box mix. Trust me, I have tried to bamboozle my guests into believing otherwise before. Our Sharp Chef Michelle, creator of Sunkissed Kitchen has created a DELICIOUS recipe for gluten free chocolate cupcakes in the SHARP Superheated Steam Countertop Oven that are full of mindful ingredients, but still moist, rich, and fudgy. I must say, it is sure to be your new favorite cupcake recipe and my nephews as well!

Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven (SSC0586DS)

The Sharp(R) Superheated Steam Countertop Oven is the start of a cooking revolution. The innovation is simply that steam can be hotter, cook better, and promote healthy living. The combination of superheated steam and conventional, radiant heat in all cooking modes means that your food will be crispy and browned on the outside, moist and delicious on the inside.

The Sharp(R) Superheated Steam Countertop Oven is a powerful, low-profile, pizzeria-style oven. Roomy enough for a 12″ pizza or 9 slices of toast, the included Broiling Pan and Crisper Tray (12.5″x12.5″) give you more cooking area than a standard quarter-size sheet pan.
