chocolate Gluten Free cupcake with German chocolate topping

Happy Gluten Free Cake Day!

I would like to wish everyone a
Happy Gluten Free Cake Day!

It is that time of year when I wish for something special, something that reminds me that …
I can eat cake and love it!

So this year I decided to make a rich, moist, dark chocolate cupcakes with a coconut carmel pecan topping. I have been craving this for weeks and I just broke down today and made them. I used Pamela’s Products Chocolate Cake Mix. I followed the Pamela’s Luscious Chocolate Cake directions. The packaging gives additional suggestions to make different cakes and desserts with this mix. I might change the title of my creation to – Lisa’s Luscious Cupcakes with Coconut Pecan Topping!   Pamela's Products Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix

Coconut Pecan Topping
I used 3 large egg yolks, 1 can of evaporated milk, 1 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 3/4 cup of butter at room temperature. Heat at medium temperature and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla, a pinch of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspon of salt, 1 package of coconut flakes, 1 1/2 cups of pecans.
I hope you enjoy Gluten Free Cake Day regardless if you try this recipe or your own. Let me know what your favorite special cake day treat is and share it with other Gluten Free Foodies!
Don’t forget to put a candle on it and make a wish!
Go! Eat Gluten Free Cake!
