Trader Joe's Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes With Buttercream Frosting
I assume that these cupcakes are a Valentine's Day special product--at least I can't remember seeing them on display until this week.
The cupcakes themselves are surprisingly good, for being gluten-free. They use rice flour instead of what flour, and the substitution is virtually unnoticeable, as far as I'm concerned. The cakes are moist, rich, and plenty chocolaty.
The frosting, however, is not good. It's heavy and way too thick. I had to scrape off most of it in order to make an acceptable cake:frosting ratio.
Will I buy it again?
No, once was plenty.
