Dry ingredients for coconut cupcakes

  • ¾ cup black rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon besan or chickpea flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Wet ingredients for coconut cupcakes


  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees C for 20 minutes.
  • Take all ingredients under the wet ingredients section into a mixing bowl.
  • Mix it well so that sugar is dissolved completely.
  • Add black rice flour to the sieve which is placed on the plate.
  • To it, add besan flour, baking powder, baking soda and sift it well.
  • Add salt to sifted flour and mix it.
  • Now add flour mixture to wet mixture in 3 parts. Mix it with light hands and make sure that batter is lump-free.
  • Initially, the batter looks a little thin but after a few minutes, it will become a little thick. But compared to wheat flour batter, this should be a little thin.
  • Pour the batter into muffin molds. As this is gluten-free flour, do not expect it to be fluffy like wheat flour or all-purpose flour.
  • Bake the cupcakes for 30 minutes at 180 degrees C in a preheated oven.
