Another in the series of the Fruits of the Spirit cupcakes.  This week’s installment – Love.  Well, it originally came from a red velvet cupcake winning entry on Cupcake Wars (obviously), but what else could this be, but love?  I found a recipe for gluten-free red velvet cupcakes (which was basically a normal recipe but using ‘gluten free’ all purpose flour), and Abby made some cream cheese frosting (non-dairy of course).  

2015-12-06 'Love' red velvet cupcakes

We had lots of fun making them – this was an additional dessert for our regular FISH (Fellowship in Someone’s Home) lunch.  This time around we had a total of 16 people at our place for lunch.  And on the menu:

  • Beef casserole (adapted from the shepherd’s pie recipe here)
  • Lentil stew (adapted from the recipe on the back of the packet of lentils)
  • Pizza on gluten-free pizza crust – including homemade pizza sauce, pepperoni, ham, pineapple, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach and cream cheese
  • Red velvet cupcakes (this post)
  • Chocolate mint brownies (recipe here)
  • Date and lemon scones (still trying to perfect this recipe)

And funnily enough, there weren’t that many leftovers!  Everyone left feeling full and satisfied and we had a great time of chatting about life, death and everything in between.

Thanks for reading this week’s adventures cooking with Abby – stay tuned for the next exciting episode of our own Cupcake Wars coming up!

Until next time, enjoy cooking at home … with kids!
