We’re a family here with a whole lot of love for Betty Crocker so it’s been a complete joy to collaborate with this delicious baking brand and spend some fun time together as a family rustling up treats.

Baking up a feast with Betty Crocker’s new gluten free range (check out my posts for gluten free chocolate cookies and brownies when I asked kids if they wanted me to make a big gooey gluten free Devil’s Food chocolate cake to finish off the baking bonanza, or 24 cupcakes from the mix instead, they opted for the latter.

Why have one cake when you can have 24 hey!

Baking with Betty Crocker

Kids love cupcakes, end of story- and these got a huge thumbs up from my chocolate-obsessed boys (and husband too)!

If you did want to make a cake from this mix, it serves 12 (I’ll be trying that another time but for now) I present you delicious and gluten-free cupcakes with Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free Velvety Chocolate Gluten Free Icing on top.

Whilst we believe in moderation in the way we eat here, we do opt and equally share a lot of gluten free recipes here.

This new collection from Betty Crocker is utterly ideal for those who choose to go wheat-free and of course celiacs and others who suffer with an allergy or intolerance to gluten.

With Betty Crocker you can make perfect cakes, cookies and brownies every time. She’s the UK’s number 1 brand in icing and baking mixes!*

Then, bake both trays together for 18-22 minutes and cool.

For the icing, pop the top, ensuring it’s at room temperature. Stir with a rounded knife. Spread over the cupcakes or do like I did and use an icing bag for a slicker finish.

So pretty and delicious!

    These look amazing. Good to know you can get gluten free in a box. The frosting is amazing. I do use that for my husbands cakes. x

    I don’t normally like boxed cake mix as it never tastes right but I’ve never tried Betty Crocker before and it does look yummy. Will definitely have to give these a try 🙂 Thanks for sharing and hosting #BrillBlogPost

    Oooh, this is good to know. I always send any gluten free ideas I see to a friend who has an intolerance, I’ll forward this to her.
    Your boys look super happy with their creations!

    • Honest Mum

      Oh fab, she will love them and they are delicious for everyone, even those who don’t have an intolerance but fancy something gluten-free x

    Hmm…serves 12 but makes 24 cupcakes, so that means I can eat 2 of these, right? 😉 Seriously, they look scrumptious and your boys look like they are having so much fun. Baking with kids is great isn’t it? (The clearing up afterwards, not so much…) Eb x

  5. Mess and Merlot

    Ooh man these look tempting – excuse me while I go raid the cake tin!! Looks like the boy’s enjoyed making them (and eating them I bet!) 🙂 #BrillBlogPost

  6. Happy Mummy

    They look delicious and you piped them so well; that’s the part I really struggle with. You should do an instruction video! #BrilliantBlogPosts x
