COTM: Gluten Free Chocolate Basil Cupcake

So you are sitting there, thinking I had forgotten about Cupcake Of The Month right? Wrong. In fact I have been thinking about this cupcake all month long, well since planted ten tons of basil. I need to find all sorts of ways to use basil now. What better then basil and chocolate?

Ethan liked it, he ate two before he asked "Mom did you add basil?" Cole ate one, and Tucker is just too sick to eat right now.

1 cup basil
1/2 cup safe mayo
1 cup rice milk
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water

Put into food processor and process.

Then add in:

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 cup gf bob's red mill flour mix
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Process in the food processor, pour into cupcake pans, bake at 350 for 23-25 minutes. If your food processor is not big, just cut up the basil and mix everything in a mixer. Enjoy.
