Eggless Chocolate Cupcake

Try your hands at this simple and easy to make egg-less chocolate cupcake recipe. It has vinegar in it, which acts with baking soda and helps in rising the cake. This makes the cake fluffier  and softer. The moisture in the cake is maintained with the help of oil used for baking.

This is the basic chocolate cupcake. You can make vanilla cupcake following the same procedure, the only difference is that you have to use cornflour instead of cocoa powder and vanilla extract to get vanilla flavor. The taste of the cake can be enhanced by adding different nuts to it. I have baked the egg-less strawberry cupcake by using vinegar.

You can frost the cake with the frosting of your choice or decorate the cake with different themes.

I love baking this simple egg-less cake . I have recently baked them for my son’s birthday celebration at his school.

I am sure you will enjoy to bake them!! Happy Baking!!

Do not overmix the batter after adding dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Overmixing of the batter will result in dense cakes.
