Gluten Free Raspberry White Chocolate Cupcakes

Yes! Gluten free in the best flavour! Raspberry and white chocolate is one of those flavour combinations that’s just a match made in heaven. The sourness of the raspberries cuts through the sweetness of the creamy white chocolate.

Gluten free cupcakes with raspberries topped with a white chocolate frosting.

  • 3 1/2 cups plain flour all-purpose
  • 1 1/4 cups caster sugar superfine
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups full-cream milk warmed
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp Greek yoghurt or sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract vanilla bean paste
  • 2 cups frozen or fresh raspberries
  • freeze dried raspberries to sprinkle
  • 1 cup white chocolate melted

White Chocolate Ganache Frosting

  • 3 cups white cooking chocolate
  • 3/4 cup thickened cream


White Chocolate Ganache Frosting

  • Add white chocolate and cream to a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 20 seconds at a time, mixing each time until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside at room temperature.


  • Preheat a fan-forced oven to 160C (320F) or 180C (356F) for a conventional oven. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake liners.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the gluten free flour, baking powder, caster sugar and salt. Turn mixer on low speed and allow it to mix for a couple minutes to help everything combine well (alternatively you may do this by sifting the ingredients together). Add the softened butter and let it mix until it resembles a fine sand like texture.
  • Next, add warm milk, eggs, yogurt, Melted white chocolate, oil and vanilla extract in a large jug and whisk well.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients in a slow and steady stream until no dry ingredients are visible. Scrape down the bowl and mix for another 20 seconds.
  • Fill each cupcake with 1 tbsp raspberries and then fill each liner 3/4 of the way with batter. Using an ice cream scoop to transfer the batter into the cupcake liners makes this a quick and easy process otherwise you can use two tablespoons).
  • Bake for 20-25 min or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow them to cool completely on a wire cooling rack before frosting. The bottoms of the cupcakes may appear very soft, but as they cool, they will firm up a little.
  • Fit the end of a piping bag with a 1M tip and frost in a swirl. Sprinkle with crushed freeze-dried raspberries.


Cupcakes can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days.

Question: The 1 cup of white melted chocolate listed last in the cupcake ingredients; at what point do I add this to the batter? I do understand that 3 cups of white chocolate is still needed for the ganache.
