Eggless Vanilla cupcake recipe
Here is an Eggless vanilla cupcake recipe without butter (oil) and without condensed milk. It comes out super soft, spongy and moist in texture. Yesterday my daughter Raksha told me to bake a cake using Vanilla essence as its her favorite flavor. She told”Mummy,when I come back from the school,I should see a cake in your hand”. Yes,it been months since I baked a cake in my kitchen.For the past few months,I have been making only microwave mug cake recipes(refer side bar)  for her after school snacks very easily within minutes.I think she got bored of them.So she badly wanted me to bake a regular cake this time.As I had already bookmarked some good cake recipes,I quickly browsed through them and tried this eggless vanilla cupcake.This recipe uses simple ingredients.The cake raised beautifully and tasted great with moist, soft n spongy texture.I couldn’t feel its a no egg, no butter, no condensed milk cupcake.You can dare to try this recipe even if you are a beginner in baking.I have used choco chips in this cake to attract my daughter.You can add chopped nuts or even decorate the cake with simple chocolate frosting if you are interested.Lets see how to make this super moist cupcake from scratch.

If you are eager to know the differences between a cupcake & muffin,here u go

  • 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 top.

  • Add 1-2 tbsp more sugar & extra vanilla essence for more sweetness & flavor.
  • You can bake this as a regular cake instead of cupcakes.I guess it will work.
  • Do not over bake the cake because the outer layer will turn chewy.
  • You can use lemon juice if you don't have vinegar in hand.
