Blackberry preserve stuffed gluten free eggless cherry cupcake with buckwheat flour, cornmeal, soyabean flour and almond.
Soft moist and superbly delicious cupcakes. If you want you can also make single cake with this recipe.
I love to try different flour in my bakes. Soyabean flour is a super hit. Soya flour makes the cake super soft. This time used buckwheat flour or kuttu ka atta. Usually used in fasting foods.

Recently saw a post of a very talented chef Surjendra Krishna Chakrabarti. Surjendra served Bacon Muffins with Blueberry Sauce. I loved the idea but I stuffed the cupcakes with blackberry preserve. I have some blackberry preserve in my pantry so used it. Thanks chef for the idea. And thanks to Bhuira Jam for sending me this delicious blackberry preserve. Already used it in my Dundee cake.
This blackberry preserve stuffed gluten free cupcakes are a super hit among my family and friends.

I have used three gluten free flours and almond in these cupcakes. Cornmeal, buckwheat flour and Soyabean flour. If you don’t have any of these flour then you can substitute them with any other flour like oatmeal, almond flour or any other gluten free flour. Or you can also use whole wheat flour or refined flour. But try to use little Soyabean flour in your cake. Soyabean flour will make your cake super soft and moist.

Cornmeal – 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon
Soyabean flour – 1/2 cup
Almond – 1/4 cup
Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon
Oil – 1/3 cup
Vinegar – 1 tablespoon
Milk – 3/4 cup

3. Mix 1 tablespoon cornmeal in the quartered cherries.
4. Grind the almonds into fine powder.
5. Mix Vinegar with room temperature or slightly warm milk and keep aside.
6. Sift the buckwheat flour first.
7. Then sift again with Soyabean flour, cornmeal, baking powder and soda.
8. In a large bowl whisk oil, powdered sugar and cherry juice or syrup. I have used canned cherry so used the syrup but if you are using fresh cherry use cherry juice.
9. Add vanilla essence and whisk well.
10. Now add all the dry ingredients gradually. First add half of the flours, and mix then add remaining half, ground almonds and mix well. Don’t overdo. Just make a lump free smooth batter.
11. Fold in the cherry pieces.
12. Pour the batter into the cupcake moulds.Fill 1/4 of the moulds.
