Moist Eggless Chocolate Cupcakes

To make the cupcakes healthy I have used flax seeds instead of egg. Secondly have used oil instead of butter to make it low cholesterol and vegan. Also for sugar I have used organic raw sugar which is nutritious and any day better than plain sugar. Now for presentation I have made use of ingredients which are easily found in your kitchen.

 

I have topped some cupcakes with desiccated coconut, some with almond flakes, some with pecan, some with nuts and some I have kept plain. So they looked like a cupcake basket. Also because of the different topping they taste also slightly different.

Also had made dry fruit fudge which turned out great. But the cardamom powder was coarse in it and I didn’t like them so I haven’t posted that recipe. I gotto try a better version of dry fruit fudge soon :) as of now make these yum Moist Chocolate Vegan Cupcakes!

Total Time: 30 mins

Yields: 20-24 cupcakes (also depends on size and shape of moulds)

Ingredients:

  1. 125 gms refined flour
  2. 125 gms wheat flour
  3. 1 tbsp baking powder
  4. 1 tbsp corn flour
  5. 1 t/s salt
  6. 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  7. 1 tbsp vanilla powder
  8. 4 tbsp chocolate chunks Or chocolate paste
  9. 2 tbsp flaxseed + 6 tbsp water
  10. 100 ml sunflower oil
  11. 175 gms raw sugar / brown sugar/ castor sugar (I have used less as prefer less sweet)
  12. 100 gms chocolate paste Or chocolate chunks
  13. 1 tbsp vanilla extract Or vanilla essence
  14. 5 tbsp hot water

Method:

  • Preheat oven at 200°C exactly ten to fifteen mins before baking. Grease the cupcake moulds with oil and dust some flour on it. You could use cup cake papers as well.
  • Roast flax seed on low heat for 3 mins. Once they start popping up switch off the gas. Grind roasted flax seed in the processor until fine powder is formed. Mix 6 tbsp water into it and keep aside for 5 to 7 mins.
  • Sift both the flour, salt, baking powder, cocoa powder, vanilla powder, corn flour and salt.
  • Cream oil and sugar (beat them) until light and fluffy. Now add flaxseed+water mixture and beat nicely for 2 mins more.
  • Now add sifted dry ingredients slowly into wet ingredients alternatively add all hot water. Fold the mixture nicely.
  • Lastly add vanilla extract Or essence and fold well.  Pour the batter into the moulds leaving some space for the cake to rise. Top cakes with desiccated coconut flakes, cherries, nuts, flaked  almonds Or choco chips. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 12 to 14 mins Or once the skewer comes out clean.

Tip:

  1. It’s important to preheat the oven before baking cupcakes.
  2. Add toppings of your choice.
  3. If chocolate paste isn’t available make use of chocolate chunks.
  4. You could use coconut milk Or soy milk instead of hot water.
  5. Dust the cupcakes with icing sugar and make you own frosting.
