    Gluten and dairy free chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting have a classic, moist flavor and are made with less sugar than some cake recipes. This recipe is a good option for kids and adults on GFCF (gluten-free/casein-free) diets. Healthy millet and superfine brown rice flour add nutritional value as well — not bad for cupcakes! I used natural pomegranate sugar to decorate these cupcakes but use any gluten-free decorative sprinkles for a festive, Valentine Day look.
