Read labels of ingredients to make sure they are GF

  • 1/4 c. DF buttery spread
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tsp. white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 c. GF all purpose flour with xanthan gum
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. GF baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. strawberry puree, I used thawed frozen strawberries in a blender (reserve 3 tbsp. for frosting)

Strawberry Creamcheese frosting:

  • 8 oz. GF/DF Cream Cheese spread, room temperature
  • 3 tbsp. strawberry puree
  • 4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 c. DF/gf butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-3 tbsp. DF/GF milk


  • Line cupcake tins with baking cup liners and set aside.
  • Combine almond milk with vinegar and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, beat buttery spread with sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, then add in the vanilla.
  • In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt then add to the buttery spread mixture. Next, add in the strawberry puree and milk mixture. Mix until combined. Allow the batter to sit for 30 minutes before the next step. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pour batter into lined cupcake tins. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
  • Remove the cupcakes and allow to completely cool before frosting.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter substitute until fluffy. Add in the wet ingredients until everything is blended.
  • Starting on a low setting, slowly add in the confectioners sugar and mix until well blended and fluffy. If necessary, add a teaspoon more of DF milk.
  • Pipe on or use a spatula to frost the cupcakes and enjoy!
