Gluten Free Orange Cake

Yield 16 cupcakes
Total prep time: 20 minutes
Bake Time: 20-30 minutes
Total Time 60-90 minutes (including cooling)

1/2 cup   Coconut Flour
1/2 cup   Sweet Rice Flour
1 1/2 tsp  Xanthan Gum
2 tsp   Baking Powder
2 tbl  Orange gelatin powder

1/2 cup  Oil
2 tbl  Melted Butter
4 Eggs
1/2 cup  Agave Syrup
1/2 cup  Sugar
1 tbl + 1tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup  Orange Juice
2 tsp  Orange Zest
1/2 tsp Orange Extract

Method of Preparation:

Pre-heat oven to 375F
1.  Mix coconut flour, sweet rice flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, orange gelatin powder. Mix with a whisk to evenly incorporate all the ingredients.
2.  In a separate bowl mix the remaining ingredients.
3.  Blend the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until smooth.  The batter will appear very thick due to the coconut flour which absorbs much more liquid than regular flour.
4.  Divide the batter into 16 cupcake tins with liners. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops of the cupcakes are firm to the touch.  Remove from oven and cool for 20-30 minutes.
5.  If not serving same day as baking sprinkle cooled cupcakes with simple syrup to keep moist.
Heat 1/4 cup water with 1/4 cup sugar until sugar is melted, cool slightly and sprinkle on cupcakes.
6.  Frost cooled cupcakes with whipped cream and enjoy!
