Treat your family to this dessert made using Betty Crocker® Gluten Free cake mix! Enjoy these vanilla cupcakes with sweet and salty frosting.

Ingredients

Cupcakes

1
box Betty Crocker™ Gluten Free yellow cake mix
1/2
cup butter, softened
2/3
cup water
2
teaspoons pure vanilla
3
eggs

Frosting

1/4
cup butter
2/3
cup packed brown sugar
2
tablespoons milk
1/2
teaspoon pure vanilla
1
cup gluten-free powdered sugar
1/4
teaspoon coarse sea salt

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat all cupcake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  • 3 Bake 18 to 23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4 Meanwhile, in 2-quart heavy saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar with whisk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Stir in milk. Return to boiling. Remove from heat; cool until lukewarm, about 30 minutes. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; gradually stir in powdered sugar until spreadable (add additional milk if frosting becomes too thick). Frost cupcakes. Sprinkle with sea salt.
Tips  

When purchasing sea salt for this recipe, look for a coarse-textured, minimally refined sea salt, such as Himalayan pink salt or black salt. Sprinkle salt on cupcakes immediately after frosting each one so salt adheres to frosting before it stiffens.
