Eggless Vanilla Cupcakes - Christmas baking....

I hope all of you are busy baking goodies for Christmas and going for vacations and so on. For me the baking bug has bitten me yet again and so there are some cakes and cupcakes coming out of my oven. Some are successful and some with cracks ..:(

The cracks in the sense, in the starting days of baking , i.e when I learnt baking, I had a passion to bake more and more goodies and so the cookies, cakes and cupcakes, whatever I made came out well (as you all can see in my previous posts). but now- a-days, whenever I am trying to bake something, either it would be half baked and raw or I can see big big cracks on them, which is not at all a pleasing sight.

So my little one insisted me to make cupcakes for her and as she will be very happy even with my cracked cupcakes and so I made her these egg less cupcakes and to my surprise, they came out perfect (without any cracks ). I was really surprised how these turned out perfect. This is the recipe I used ...

Adapted from cookingandme:

  1. All purpose flour / Maida- 1 ½ Cups
  2. Thick Curd- 1 Cup
  3. Sugar- ¾ Cup
  4. Baking powder- 1 ¼ tsp
  5. Baking Soda- ¼ tsp
  6. Vanilla Essence- 1 tsp
  7. Oil- ½ Cup
  1. Mix sugar and curd well till the sugar is well dissolved.
  2. In this add baking powder, baking soda, vanilla essence and oil. Stir well.
  3. Add the flour slowly and gently fold the mixture, without over mixing the batter.
  4. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and pour the above batter in the cupcake liners and bake for about 15- 20 min or till a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  5. When it is done cool them on wire rack and decorate as needed or serve them as it is.

I am sending this to cookcookandcook and also to spicyfood events.
