Eggless Strawberry Cupcake

Eggless Srawberry Cupcake

 

Cupcakes are small cakes made to serve a single person. They are baked in muffin tins that are lined with the cupcake liners.

The batter of the cupcakes is same as that of the normal cakes. They bake faster compared to the bigger cakes. As they are small in size, the heat conduction is fast and they cook faster. The main ingredients used for making good and spongy cupcakes are flour, butter, sugar, eggs and leavening agents. They can be made of different flavors and varied ingredients such as fruits, nuts, chocolate chips, rice cereals. Sometimes different types of frostings, cream, peanut butter are inserted with the help of nozzle in the cupcakes while making them.

I have made the eggless strawberry flavored cupcake. They are very moist, soft and spongy. I have used milk and vinegar. Vinegar is acidic and reacts with baking soda. The chemical reaction between vinegar and baking soda  produces carbon dioxide which helps the cake to rise. This results in soft and fluffy cakes. The cake remains moist as I have used oil in making them.

I have also made eggless chocolate cupcake with vinegar. I will soon post the recipe.

    • Hi Pooja
      Thank you for going through the recipe. Yes you can use strawberry crush in place of strawberry jam. Since the crush is liquid than jam, so add a tbsp of milk less from the mentioned amount. Happy baking!!
