Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes

I have a new favorite cupcake!! Surprise Surprise that it is all chocolate! :) These are delicious and I can bake them for my sweet Mama next time she comes to visit. Not sure who I will be cooking them for though since they are so tasty! Tomorrow is Friday!! Have a super day.

1 cup King Arthur Flour Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Mix
1/2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 large eggs
1/2 cup water

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups or line them with cupcake papers
Whisk together the baking mix and cocoa and set aside.
Beat the sugar, butter, vegetable oil, and vanilla until well blended.
Add the eggs one at a time, mixing until just incorporated after each addition. Stir in the baking mix/cocoa alternately with the water.
Scoop by level 1/4 cupfuls into the prepared muffin cups.
Bake the cupcakes until a cake tester comes out clean, about 20 to 22 minutes.
Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from the pan.
Cool completely before frosting.
Makes 12 cupcakes.

The frosting that I made was a  Chocolate Butter Frosting from my Better Home and Gardens cookbook. You can find my post on the frosting by clicking HERE. :) The frosting is also gluten free. But please make sure that all the brands you are using are also gluten free.
