We are cupcake lovers at my house and it’s one of our favorite treats. These eggless chocolate cupcakes are pefect for me because I have an egg allergy. Even nonallergic people love them!

These are super moist, which can be an issue with eggless recipes and the taste is a nice, smooth chocolately taste.

Many egg free recipes have white vinegar or lemon juice, but this recipe has neither. I added buttermilk to help hold it together.

Eggless Chocolate Cupcakes

Here are a few things that I use to make these cupcakes that I can’t live without.

  • 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.
  • Mixing Bowl– Stainless steel mixing bowls are my very favorite.
  • 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 and they’re perfect to place your cupcakes so they’ll reach room temperature.
  • KitchenAid hand mixer–  I received this as a gift for my wedding over 18 years ago and it’s still going strong.  It’s definitely worth the few extra dollars.
  • Calphalon Muffin Tin–  I also got this for a wedding gift and still makes perfect cupcakes and muffins.

Cupcake Tips

Eggless Cupcake Tip #1

This recipe calls for the cupcake liner to be filled half way. I know it doesn’t look like a lot when you you are adding the batter, but it will rise!

Eggless Cupcake Tip #2

The batter for these cupcakes will be thick, like pancake batter. An ice cream scoop is perfect for this!

Eggless Cupcake Tip #3

These cupcakes are done with a toothpick is inserted in the center and it comes out clean. Make sure to check before you turn off the oven.

Eggless Cupcake Tip #4

Let them cool COMPLETELY before putting the frosting on.  I know sometimes things get rushed, but they’ll look the best if you wait until they are completely cooled.
