Just because you may have a gluten allergy doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy some sweet treats. These tye-dye cupcakes will bring a smile to all ages.

Makes: 12 cupcakes

Prep: 15 minutes

Bake: 20 minutes


1 1/2 cup All Purpose Gluten Free Flour

1 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp Kosher Salt

1/2 cup Butter, room temperature

1 cup Sugar

2 Eggs

1/2 cup Milk

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Food Coloring (Classic Colors)


In a large mixing bowl combine AP GF Flour, baking powder and kosher salt; mix to combine and set aside. In another large mixing bowl beat butter and sugar together until it is combined and creamed together. Beat in one egg at a time to the butter and sugar, then add the vanilla extract. Add a third of the milk to the butter and sugar and beat well. Then add in a third of the dry ingredients and beat well. Repeat with the milk then dry ingredients until all of the ingredients are combined. 

Separate the batter into 6 separate bowls. Color each bowl with a different color with food coloring, representing the colors of the rainbow. Spoon the batter, in rainbow order, into a cupcake pan lined with cupcake liners. *Tip: Be sure put a small amount of each color so when all the colors are added the cupcake liner is only 2/3 full of batter. 

Place cupcake pan into the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick pulls clear from the center. Allow for the cupcakes to cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then take cupcakes out of pan and transfer them to a cooling rack. 

Once cupcakes have cooled, top with frosting and enjoy! (Frosting recipe follows.)
