So I've bought Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World and made tons of the fantastic recipes for my niece that has a dairy allergy (thank you authors of this wonderful book). My husband has a wheat sensitivity (not completely intolerant) and will eat spelt flour on occasion. So I tried to make some cupcakes substituting white spelt flour but they didn't come out quite right. I was careful not to overwork the flour but they still came out too dense. Does anyone have any tips? I'd also like to try to make a small 4" inch birthday cake converting one of the cupcake recipes (I have a 4 x 4 cake pan) so I'm hoping I can get the cupcakes right and then work on getting the cake right. Any help would be appreciated!

I would recommend trying a different gluten-free flour or flour blend. It's a matter of personal taste, but to me, spelt flour has too hearty of a taste/texture for cupcakes (it's better for muffins and scones). I don't have the book, but I *think* there's a recommendation in the front for a g/f flour blend to use.

I have made the vanilla cupcakes from VCTOW with no issues, I just used regular spelt flour. They definitely taste heartier but still delicious. A chocolate cupcake would probably mask that healthy taste they get if you weren't into it.
