Chocolate Cupcakes (Eggless & Butterless) with Whipped cream frosting

Chocolate cupcakes are my elder son's favorite.Chocolates drive kids crazy and even adults like me too:) How about a chocolate cupcake with lesser calories??None can say no to these cute little butterless & eggless ones.I had tried out the Eggless Chocolate cake sometime back,I have almost used the same recipe in this recipe just a few modifications here & there.These cupcakes are very simple to prepare and require no advanced gadgets just a wire whisk can do the work.A dollop of ice cream or whipped cream makes it even more delicious & heavenly.They are very soft,moist and perfect for any kitty party.Try & enjoy!!!


Ingredients
for cupcakes
all purpose flour 1 cup
cocoa powder 3tbsp
granulated sugar 3/4 cup
baking powder 3/4tsp
baking soda 1/4 tsp
oil 1/3cup
salt 1/4 tsp
water ;warm 3/4 cup
vanilla 1/2 tsp
vinegar 11/2tsp

for whipped cream
heavy whipping cream 1 pint
vanilla essence 1tsp
sugar granulated 2-3tbsp



Method
FOR CUPCAKES
  • Sift the flour,cocoa,sugar,baking powder,baking soda and salt twice.Keep aside.
  • Mix the vanilla extract,warm water,oil.Add this to the dry flour mix.Mix well to incorporate.
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F and line a muffin tray with baking cup liners.
  • Add the vinegar just before you scoop it in muffin cups,mix well.In each cup,add the mix upto 2/3 rd of the cup.
  • Tap the tray on the counter 3-4 times to pop the air bubbles that appear.Place it in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.(I finished at 27minutes)
  • Cool on wire rack and cool completely before frosting.

FOR WHIPPED CREAM
  • Place the bowl and the whisk blades  in the freezer for 15 minutes before you whip the cream.
  • Pour the cold cream in the bowl thereafter and start whisking for 3 minutes.Add the granulated sugar and vanilla essence ,continue to whisk until you get stiff peaks.
  • Scoop it in a bowl and cover.Refrigerate until further use or pipe over muffins in your desired shapes.


Servings~ 11-12 muffins

NOTES
* You can add lemon juice instead of vinegar too.
* The amount of sugar to be added in whipping cream depends on your sweet tooth.The cupcakes are sweet and so I wished a mildly sweet frosting and so I used 3tbsp of sugar.
* You can have these cupcakes without frosting too.


See u guys after a short break :)

Whipped cream on chocolate cupcakes- you are genius Julie. My b-day is coming up and I asked my husband for the same combination in a cake. Maybe I should just have him bake one, directing him to this now bookmarked page ;-)
