Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past little while, there’s a very good chance you have heard of minions, whether or not you have seen the Despicable Me movies. If you don’t know them by name, then you at least recognize the yellow, bug-eyed critters in overalls who are all over TV and social media these days.
This was my second attempt at making minion cupcakes so I made them a bit different than the last time around. You can visit my original post here.
These cupcakes were made for a little boy’s birthday. They were gluten-free and vegan. I used Bob’s Red Mill flour blend and xanthan gum, which created the perfect texture (not “gummy“), but I found that the taste of the garbanzo flour was a bit overpowering. In the future I will likely try and make my own blend.
