Eggless Chocolate Cupcakes with White Frosting



                                                                    
This is best batch of cupcakes I have ever made as of today, so soft, perfect looking even textured and definitely moist till last bite. Earlier I was in a dilemma whether to bake a large cake or divide it into small cupcakes. Hence, after giving  it a long thought, I realized that cakes will be finished on the same day as my hubby and son are choco maniac. However, in case of cupcakes anyone can count how many he has had and when to hit the brakes :) ! Also the fact that cupcakes can take less space and can be stored more easily. So for the veg lovers, this time it is eggless cupcakes which I am about to present to you for your view and further comment.


Yields: 12 cup cakes, Baking Time: 20-25 minutes


Ingredients:
Dry Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups of All purpose flour
3/4 cup Confectioner's sugar
1/3 cup Cocoa powder
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Salt


Wet Ingredients:
1/2 cup Oil
1 cup Water
1 tbsp Vinegar
1 tsp Chocolate flavor essence


Method:
Pre-heat oven and line cupcake pans with cupcake papers or you can simply grease the pans. In a mixing bowl sift together all the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder, powered sugar, baking soda and cocoa powder) and make a well in the center for the wet ingredients. Pour oil, water and vinegar in the center and begin stirring from the center of the well, slowly incorporating the dry ingredients to the liquid. When the batter is lumps free pour this batter into the cupcake pan and place the pan in the middle of a pre-heated oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes(this can vary depending on your OTG's size and performance). Mine took exact 20 minutes to bake. 


                                                                     


Remove them from oven and place the cupcakes on cooling rack for 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from the pan now and let them cool completely before decorating them.
Serve cupcakes at room temperature. You can also store them in containers and keep in fridge.
                                                                      


For Frosting :
1/2 cup Whipping cream
1 tbsp Icing sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla essence


Method:
Place the bowl and beater in the fridge for an hour. This step is very important so don't skip for the better results. Now pour chilled cream in that bowl and beat on low speed for 1 minute then add icing sugar and beat the mixture until both are combined well. Add vanilla essence and increase the speed of blender to medium and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Decorate with some sprinkles on top.  

With some sprinkles on top, isn't these looking gorgeous? :-)

  37. Your cupcakes look delicious. You make a good point that when eating cupcakes, you tend to count the number you have eaten so you might limit yourself from eating too many :-)

    My boys and husband really like chocolate too.

  47. Tried these with banana instead of choc. The cakes were v good except the salt in this recipe is too much. The cakes were a bit salty at the bottom after baking. Very good recipe!!
