  • 125g Caster sugar
  • 125g Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 125g Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • 1.5 Rhubarb Stalks (Chopped)


1. Preheat the Oven to 200 Degrees Celcius

2. Cream together butter and sugar until the mix is smooth.

3. Add the eggs and mix until combined but not for too long or the cake will be stodgey. Add the sieved flour, xanthan gum and baking powder and combine well.

4. Once the cake batter is of an even consistency, fold in the chopped rhubarb. Again, don’t over mix, just make sure the chunks are roughly spread throughout the mix.

5. Spoon the batter into the prepared cases and bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes, allowing to cool afterwards. To test if the cakes are ready pierce with a clean knife and make sure the knife comes out clean with no wet batter attached.

6. Serve the rhubarb cupcakes hot with ice cream or custard, or cold in a packed lunch. (If freezing, leave to defrost for 45 mins then blast in the microwave for 30 seconds.)
