Eggless Chocolate Cupcakes

There was a day when I never baked without eggs but now I find it so easy and simple to bake without eggs! And it turns out so well! One of my most favorite chocolate cake is this egg free dairy free chocolate cake and this mini egg free dairy free chocolate cake! These two cakes are so simple to put together and it's so light and moist! 
These cupcakes tastes just as good as my egg free cakes - soft, light and moist! You will not miss the eggs!

I made these cupcakes and the Zebra Cake for my dad's office to celebrate my mum and dad's anniversary and everybody at his office simply loved it! Almost as soon as the cupcakes reached, I got calls to tell me how delicious it is! I topped it with some chocolate buttercream which went very well with the cupcakes.

Method
Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Line muffin tin with liners.

I frosted the cupcakes with this Chocolate Buttercream.  I halved this chocolate buttercream recipe to frost these cupcakes.

Notes
1. Once you add the baking soda, mix the batter quickly and bake quickly. Don't keep the batter around for long. 
2. Each oven is different, mine was done in 20 minutes. Start checking after 18 minutes.
3. Adding coffee is optional. But I recommend it, the coffee takes the chocolate cupcakes to a whole new level.


Until next time,

  3. Hi !! Just a tiny query
    Is vinegar necessary?
    And this includes castor sugar... I'm not exactly sure what that means ... Will either icing sugar or granulated sugar be fine?
    Thank you ! I love ask your recipes!! Have tired most of them and they were just too awesome!

    1. Hi, it did not get sticky for me. If you bake it well, it wont get sticky on top. Also do not cover the cupcakes before it cools completely.
