Spice Mandarin Hit

All flours are gluten free and are Red Mill products
Step 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Step 2. Sift listed ingredients just below together into a mixing bowl.
1   cup vanilla cake mix
1/3 cup all purpose flour
¼  cup cocoa
⅛  cup coconut flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Step 3: Beat the second group of ingredients, listed below, together {Probably should beat the sugar and butter together first then add other ingredients listed as you go, but impatient and ADD prone as I am just put it all in the magic bullet.}
1 cup sugar
¼ cup butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon agave nectar
4 small mandarin slices
Step 4: Mix all ingredients listed above together.
Step 5. Stir in approximately 1/8 cup almond milk until fluffy {I went by teaspoons, took about 6!}
Bake in oven for 25-30 mins at 375 degrees.

For frosting I used the leftover icing from the Blueberry Lemon Blunder cuppies and added about 6 mandarin slices to make it goopy.
Cupcakes turn out a bit dry but ever so slightly fudgy. The fruit ice toppingmakes it suitable for a summer afternoon party and the slight spiciness makes it perfect for a fall evening desert.
{Still need to find a way to get gluten-free recipes to rise!}
