Ingredients to make Eggless Chocolate Cupcakes:

The most obvious ingredient in this eggless cake recipe is the cocoa powder. I prefer using dutch processed unsweetened cocoa powder as it adds an incredible amount of richness. Because of the low amount of sugar used in the recipe, the cake itself is not overly sweet. In fact, you will come across some bitter roasted notes from the unsweetened cocoa powder. This just adds on to the decadence factor.

Additionally, the dutch processed cocoa powder adds a deep dark rich colour to these eggless chocolate cupcakes. One bit is all it takes to experience the eternal indulgence. Whether you’re throwing a party for the kids, or suprising your loved one, these egg free cupcakes are sure to do the trick.


I really hope you give these eggless chocolate cupcakes a go! They’re absolutely delicious and I bet you’d be dreaming of these long after eating them.
