hi everyone i desperately need a really good chocolate cupcake recipe that is eggless, i have tried a couple of them but the cupcakes just sink. The colour looks good but they are not rising and just sink very low down and basically just dont look good! This is the recipe i have been following:
1 1/2 cup flour
* 1/3 cup cocoa powder
* 1 tsp baking soda
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup vegetable oil
* 1 cup cold water
* 2 tsp vanilla extract
* 2 tsp vinegar
What am i doing wrong???? I tried the recipie the same but for the baking soda i used bicarb of soda was this right or should i have used baking powder???
baking soda and bicard of soda cause two different chemical reactions so you should of definatly used baking soda.
i use that recipe and it is ok for me. i also add fresh grated chocolate or chocolate chips too.
I found this recipe earlier this year and use it all the time. I actually made the whole cake (it was delicious), but this is now my go to recipe for chocolate cake/cupcakes. They rise very nicely and are moist.
Bicarbonate of soda, baking soda, sodium bicarbonate, bicarb soda etc are all the same thing ..
Let's see .. US measurements ..
too much oil - 6 tablespoons is enough
a bit more flour - around 8 oz .. between 1 1/2- 1 2/3 cups
more vinegar - 2 Tbs. - to react with the soda to raise the cake
The batter will be thinner and runnier than normal batter ..
