A touch of pineapple in both the cupcakes and frosting puts a spring in the step of this recipe. For the frosting, several brands of dairy-free cream cheese alternative are now available, but they tend to be slightly softer and less pungent than dairy cream cheese. To compensate and punch up the flavor, this recipe uses a higher ratio of cream cheese alternative and a squeeze of citrus. –Alisa Fleming
Free of: dairy, nuts and gluten, plus the other top allergens. For those not following a gluten-free diet, a flour alternative is included.
Makes 16 cupcakes
• Egg Substitute: Omit the eggs and white sugar, and add 1/4 cup of honey or agave nectar. Increase the baking soda to 1 teaspoon. This makes just 12 cupcakes.
• Flour Use: If gluten is not an issue for you, then omit the brown rice flour, tapioca starch, potato starch and xanthan gum, and instead use 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour.
• Coconut: While most allergists do not consider coconut a tree nut, if you are nut allergic, ask your doctor if coconut is safe for you.
