About the Recipe

This eggless chocolate cupcake recipe is the perfect treat for special occasions or even if you'd like to satisfy a desire to bake. I've always loved baking eggless cakes because it shows the versatility of baking and highlights other types of leavening agents like baking soda and vinegar.

This recipe is rich and decadent and has a delicious chocolatey flavour. It pairs well with any buttercream. I'd specifically recommend using chocolate buttercream!
