Its really nice to see the blog world flowing with christmas recipes. It sure creates the festive mood within us. Here is my treat for christmas : Eggless Vanilla Chocolate Chips Cupcakes. Ever since I got the muffin pans after a great search, hubby was complaining that I didnt put it to good use after the Eggless Dates walnut muffins. So looked out for a basic eggless vanilla cupcake recipe and this one was apt for my search. Needless to say the taste, it was yummy! My little one enjoyed it to the core and my happiness knew no bounds :)
This is sure a kid pleaser. I just halved from the orginal recipe otherwise I followed almost the same. The result was fluffy and soft cupcakes studded with chocolate chips, it was pretty as well. The cupcakes are slightly crusty on the top and soft inside as perfect as the bakery plain cakes.
This can be used as a keeper for basic eggless vanilla cake too. Next time I am planning to try a vanilla sponge loaf cake with doubling the measurements from this. I got 7 large cupcakes since my muffin pan holds only 6 I used a mini tumbler like cup for the 7th one. My OTG can only hold medium sized cake tins and muffin pans so my 1 cup measures accordingly as I dont have the patience to bake in batches :)
This is the first time I am very happy with the outcome of an eggless vanilla version of a cake. Last time when I tried with curd as egg substitute it was a super flop but guess I might have gone wrong in measurements, sure waiting to try and get it right next time atleast.
Hubby always teases me when I half the cake like this to click, he says why do u dissect the cakes ;) But I have the habit of doing this to see the texture inside and to show it to you :)
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
