GF Grapefruit Yogurt Cupcakes

Grapefruit CupcakesI find adding fruits or fruit juice or fruit puree is a bit challenging since it changes the texture and ph balance of the cake. Depending on how juicy your fruits are and how dry your flour is, you need to change the recipe slightly. Trust your gut feeling? These cupcakes worked for me today, yay! A burst of sweet-tart flavour from the grapefruit and extra moistness from yogurt makes this cupcakes so perfect. I added in the lactose free yogurt instead of thick Greek yogurt. You can also use silken tofu for dairy-free option. If you have a sweet tooth, you might want to add more sweetener since it is still quite tart cake. Or use sweet oranges instead? Have fun baking x


1 grapefruit (about 2 tbsp of zest and 2 tbsp of juice)
50g coconut flour
50g almond flour
100g lactose free natural yogurt
2 eggs
1 tbsp of coconut oil
1 tbsp of stevia (adjust depending on how sweet your grapefruit is)
1/2 tsp of vanilla bean powder
1 tsp of baking powder
a pinch of salt

Lightly beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add zest and juice from the grapefruit, stevia, coconut oil and yogurt into the bowl. Stir to combine. Add all other dry ingredients and stir. Spoon the mixture into a prepared cupcake tin and bake in the preheated oven (180) for 25-30 minutes or until cooked. Let it cool and enjoy.
