Sunbutter Cupcakes for Alistaire

For my little buddy, I would try anything, just so he can have a treat like the rest of us.

Giving him a cupcake that can give wheat ones a run for their money? Yeah, that felt awesome! Moist, light with that cupcake texture and yes, allergy friendly. No gluten, peanuts, nuts, eggs, dairy….just a lot of flavor! I was proud of these cakes, I took them to our neighborhood National Night Out this week. And they were all gone in minutes. Woot!

  1. WOW! Talk about a delicious treat! I’m a baker on the side (yeah, doesn’t help with my weight loss…)…these are something I may have to incorporate!

  2. Great looking cupcakes! I haven’t heard of Sunbutter before, sounds interesting, I’ll have to keep an eye out for it… Why the preference towards Reynolds and Wilton paper liners?

    1. Doh! I forgot to add the “why” to that 😉 Anyhow, the premium liners they make release perfectly. No paper stick-on like you get with the regular paper liners. They have foil inside/paper on the outside – and they don’t bleed during baking, so look great.
