Fluffy, soft, spongy cupcakes with the flavor of vanilla, made with the most easily available ingredients, are eggless vanilla cupcakes and this is a recipe for the best eggless cupcakes. I love to use this eggless cupcake recipe to celebrate any occasion. The best part is that this recipe doesn’t call for any eggs, nor does it call for any condensed milk or yogurt. Milk along with vinegar is used in place of eggs. And the result is such that it is hard to believe that the cupcakes are eggless. I mean, cupcakes can’t get better than this. This eggless vanilla cupcake recipe is simple without any special ingredients or equipment. In this post, you can find how to make cupcakes without eggs along with step by step pictures and a complete recipe video.
Eggless cupcake recipe calls for:
Flour: All-purpose flour and cornflour have been used to make eggless cupcakes. If you are short of cornflour you can use all-purpose flour instead.
Baking powder, baking soda, and salt: Make sure to check the goodness of these ingredients, I mean of baking powder and baking soda. How to check baking powder and baking soda have been explained in the forthcoming topics in this post.
Milk and vinegar: Basically, buttermilk is called for in many eggless cake recipes. However, in place of buttermilk, milk plus vinegar is used. I have personally never used buttermilk in any cake recipe. In case you do not have vinegar, you can use lemon juice.
Oil and sugar: I have tried a number of eggless cupcake recipes. Most of the recipes called for too much sugar and at the end, as in after frosting the cake, I found the cake to be too sweet. However, this recipe gave aptly sweet cupcakes. I have used oil. I have never tried this recipe with butter. You can try it with melted butter too. It should work.
Take ½ of a teaspoon of baking powder in a bowl and add ¼ cup of hot water. The solution should bubble up. If it doesn’t, it has gone bad.
Take ½ tsp of baking soda in a bowl or plate. Add ½ tsp vinegar or lemon juice. It should fizz. If it doesn’t, get a new one.
Well, often used in the incorrect context, the two are quite different from each other.
