      4 Comments on Perfect Chocolate Cupcakes (Eggless)

Hello Everyone, Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday and in case you are wondering what special to make for your mom then you don’t have to worry as I have got the perfect recipe. I’m talking about these chocolate cupcakes that are super moist, have a tender crumb and are very easy to make. Oh and they are eggless too. They are the Perfect Chocolate Cupcakes indeed!

Cupcakes are one of my favourite things to bake as they are quick and easy to make. They are ideal for whenever you have a craving for cake but don’t have time to make one or when you want a quick dessert.

Last year on Mother’s Day I made a cake for our mom and Karen helped me to decorate it. The cake looked really good and our Mom was really happy. I must tell you that seeing the smile on your Mom’s face when you make something special for her is really priceless.

Since there were no eggs I made an eggless cake. I adapted a recipe and replaced the eggs with yogurt. The cake turned out fine and looked nice but according to me it didn’t taste that good or have the right texture. So this year I wanted to make a chocolate cake that tasted as good as it looked.

I have searched for eggless recipes  and tried out many before but they didn’t turn out very good. Finally I came across a recipe which stated that it was a ‘No Fail’ recipe. So I tried it out and I was simply amazed by the way the cupcakes turned out. They were so chocolaty, moist and had a soft crumb that it was hard to believe they were eggless. I had been searching for a perfect eggless chocolate cupcake recipe for a long time and I’m so glad that I have finally found one. I’m so happy that I just had to share it with you. It is now my ‘go to’ recipe and I doubt I’ll be using eggs in future for making chocolate cupcake since I’ll be using this recipe from now on.

I think you should definitely make these chocolate cupcakes for your mom this Mother’s Day and make her feel special.

You can also make these for any occasion like birthdays, bridal showers, anniversaries etc. They not only look good but are also really delicious to eat, so go ahead and make them for your family and friends. I can guarantee you that they will love it!

I have made cupcakes but you use the same recipe for making a cake. You just need to double the recipe to make either an 8” cake or two 6” cakes.

Recipe adapted from


  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar/granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence / extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or use 1/2 cup milk mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of white vinegar


  • Preheat the oven at 180°C for 10 minutes and line a muffin tin with cupcake papers.
  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together oil, buttermilk (or soured milk) and vanilla essence and combine well.
  • Slowly add the dry to the wet mixture and fold together till it forms a smooth batter of dropping consistency.
  • Now using two tablespoons or an ice cream scoop fill each of the cupcake liners with the batter and bake at 180°C for around 15 to 18 minutes or until done.
  • To know if it done, insert a toothpick in the center and if it comes out clean, that means it is done. You can also just touch the top of the cupcake and if it springs back then that means it’s done.
  • Remove from the oven and allow it to cool completely.
  • Pipe some chocolate ganache or buttercream onto it and decorate with colourful sprinkles. Enjoy!!
