40 minute Eggless Chocolate Cupcakes

Yum
It was Saturday morning and hubby dearest and my sister’s birthday. Both are currently turned off by big creamy cakes L. So I had all savoury items planned, but fate intervened and we had to change all our plans L . We could all just meet up for breakfast. No cake, no elaborate lunch menu… was enough to get me all upset (They were somehow fine L).  But I’m no quitter, so I decided whether they like it or not, I will go ahead and bake cake for them, only I baked tiny little cupcakes so it wasn’t too much cake but still there was something special. Luckily, both seemed to like it. I usually bake cakes for evenings or nights, when I have all the time in the world to take things slowly.  My first time baking for breakfast, and I had to be quick. So I made these simple 40 minute chocolate cupcakes with things easily available at hand. I hope you enjoy making these when you are starved for time.







40 minute Eggless Chocolate Cupcakes


Eggless chocolate cupcakes with choco chips baked in 40 minutes

Recipe Type:  Dessert
Cuisine:          International
Prep Time:     30 minutes
Cook time:     30 minutes
Yield:              8

Ingredients:

3/4 cup Whole wheat flour (atta) / Plain flour (maida)
1/4 cup Cocoa powder
¾ tsp Baking powder
A pinch Baking soda
1/2 cup + 3 tsp of Sugar
1/2 cup Milk
1 Tbsp Vinegar
½ tsp Chocolate / Vanilla essence
1/4 cups Vegetable Oil
1 Tbsp Water
2 Tbsp Choco chips

Method:

  • Sift the dry ingredients together i.e. the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda at least twice. I used whole wheat flour. This can be made with plain flour too.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius
  • Add the vinegar to the milk and set aside for 5 mins
  • Add the oil and 0.5 cup sugar to the milk and whisk until the sugar has dissolved
  • Add the chocolate / vanilla essence
  • Add the dry ingredients and the water and whisk for 3-4 mins. Add more sugar if needed. I felt the 0.5 cups was not sufficient so I added the remaining 3 tsp. If you add sugar now, whisk for about 3-4 mins.
  • Add the Choco chips and mix
  • Line the cupcake tray with liners and spoon the mix into them.
  • Bake for 20-22 mins until done. Mine took 22 mins.
