Gluten Free Semi-Homemade Peanut Butter Cupcakes

I love to bake but I don’t always have time to bake from scratch. So, when Aldi started carrying inexpensive Gluten Free products is was trilled; most of these products are also nut free, soy free, wheat free and lactose free.  You can’t beat the price either a box of GF yellow cake mix run around $2.99


Gluten Free


What you will need for your cupcakes:


1 box live G free yellow cake mix (yields 12 cupcakes)

3 T of peanut butter

2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup oil

3 eggs


Follow the directions on the box but add the 3 tablespoons of peanut butter to your cake mix.


Now, for the Peanut Butter Frosting!


What you will need for the peanut butter frosting:

1 softened unsalted stick of butter

1 cup peanut butter

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

3 T of unsweetened almond milk ( I add a T as I mix I like my icing thicker)

2 cups confectioners’ sugar


Place the softened  butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Beat for at least 4 minutes for it to get good and fluffy.


Gluten Free baking can be pretty demanding; this is a simply way to bring delicious GF baking to your family in quarter of the time
