GLUTEN FREE CARROT CAKE CUPCAKES

July 2, 2016

 

This is a tribute to one of my favorite websites:  ElanasPantry.com  

 

I love her gluten free recipes.  They always work out.  She's taken the guess-work and experimentation out of the process for me - and for that - I am deeply appreciative.

 

I adjusted the recipe just a tiny little bit, because...that's what I do.  I'll post the recipe as I made it with Elana's ingredients in ().
