No Eggs--it's like this one: Wacky Cake (Poor Man's Cake) Ingredients: • 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour • 1 cup sugar • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa • 1 teaspoon baking soda • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1 teaspoon vanilla • 1 teaspoon vinegar • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil • 1 cup cold water Preparation: In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt. Make three wells in the flour mixture. In one put vanilla; in another the vinegar, and in the third the oil. Pour the cold water over the mixture and stir until moistened. Pour into 8 x 8-inch pan. Bake at 350°F. oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until it springs back when touched lightly.
No eggs, and it's delicious.
As im new to this, could you please tell me what it is about the vinegar that adds to this recipe?? Does it add to the flavour? or does it make the Cupcakes more moistened? :)
The vinegar helps it be more like using buttermilk. For homemade buttermilk you us 1 tbs of vinegar to 1 cup milk. Buttermilk gives cupcakes just that little extra something to make them the best cupcakes you've ever had.
It is interesting that there is no eggs, i will have to try it and see how they come out!
I just made them and they are simply awesome!
I've been searching high & low for a more dense, heavier cupcake.... like the kind you might buy in a professional bakery. Do these cupcakes have that sort of texture or are they light & fluffy?
So, could you replace the milk with buttermilk? I might have to see for myself.
