Fatiema’s Eggless Chocolate Cupcakes What I Used:
All-purpose flour - 1¼ cups Sugar - ¾ cup Baking powder - 4 tsp (remember, no eggs!) Cocoa powder - 4 tbsp oil - ¾ cup and a little more Vanilla essence 1 cap Cooled boiling water - 175 ml Salt - a small pinch
For Frosting Butter -3 tbsp Icing sugar -5 tbsp Cocoa powder -1 tbsp How I Made It:
In a large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. This is to ensure that the ingredients are well blended. If you don't have a sieve, just make sure you mix the dry ingredients well.
Add sugar and mix together. I used powdered brown sugar but it’s okay to use white sugar as well.
Next, add oil, water, soy milk (or whatever kind you are using) and vanilla and mix thoroughly, churning the batter in one direction.
Pour into muffin liners ¾ full and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees C for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
If using frosting, cut muffins/cake into half horizontally and spread like in a sandwich.
