Chocolate cupcake eggless

Recently my friend Gayathri gave me “Hershey’s classic recipes”. I tried this eggless chocolate cupcake without butter, condensed milk from the book. It turned out awesome. I couldn’t believe it is eggless, butterless cake without milk products. Its a vegan cupcake recipe. It was so soft n moist. I would say this is the best eggless chocolate cupcake I have ever tasted. We all loved it and it was a big hit in my home. Thank you so much Gayu for the book.The best thing is there is no butter , milk & curd. Instead I have used little vinegar & oil. Try this cake , u’ll love it for sure.  It’s a best recipe for beginners to try.

    -Jaishri Khanna

    1. Thank u Jaishri Khanna.Regarding the differences :
      Cupcakes tend to be sweeter than muffins; there are savory muffins such as cornbread
      Cupcakes are often iced or frosted, whereas muffins tend to have no topping, or a simple crumb topping
      Cupcakes usually have a head or top no larger than the body of the cupcake; muffins are often encouraged to overflow their baking cup, so that their top is larger in diameter, giving them somewhat of a mushroom shape
      Cupcakes are almost always, well, cupcake shaped; muffins can be made as just muffin tops
      Cupcakes are almost never crispy or crunchy; muffins are often encouraged to brown and develop texture, especially on the tops

      source :Yahoo answers.Thanks for asking this question to me.Now i too came to know their differences :)
