I know there’s a lot of carrot cake recipes out there, but what about EGGLESS carrot cake cupcakes! Grab your bowls and mixer and get started on this yummy recipe.
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, then you know I’m allergic to eggs and I don’t like making things I can’t eat. I started experimenting with recipes and have created a bunch that are eggless! Many are located on my site so take some time to look around.
Eggless Carrot Cupcakes
Who else is a carrot cake fan? We’re on spring break this week and with Easter coming up, I thought I would type this up and get it out to y’all.
This cupcake is so light and moist and the vanilla buttercream frosting is fantastic on it.
I think it’s easier to make eggless recipes in smaller sizes. Eggs help hold baked goods together. You can make an eggless cake that holds together well, but I don’t like using weird ingredients that you have to buy special and will never use again.
I used basic vanilla buttercream frosting for these. It’s super easy to make.
Supplies that I LOVE that make this recipe easier.
- Silicone cupcake liners– My kids love these and you can just throw them in the dishwasher. This is a 12 pack so make sure to purchase two! They are a necessity for eggless recipes.
- Cooling racks– These are my very favorite and the main reason is because they don’t take up a lot of space in my cabinet.
- Calphalon Muffin Tin– I also got this for a wedding gift and still makes perfect cupcakes and muffins.
