Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    I really like the cupcake recipe. The burnt butter adds a lovely richness to the taste. In my experience, the butter took a long time solidify again, so take that into consideration. I successfully made these gluten free by adding an extra teaspoon of baking powder. I ensured the extra teaspoon of baking powder and tapioca starch added up to 50g then made up the additional 100g with brown rice flour. The icing, however, was way too sweet for my taste. I felt like it gave me diabetes from eating one cupcake. Luckily, I hadn’t iced all the cupcakes and I will leave the rest plain and have them with marscapone and banana, or some other combination I can conjure up from my supplies.
