Eggless Chocolate Cupcake

Soft and moist....a keeper ^_^
This recipe tasted surprisingly good. I didn't have high expectation on an eggless recipe as I have tried a few before and while the cakes are soft and moist, the cake crumbs stuck to the teeth. But that also could be due to high liquid contents in the batter. This one is different, moist, soft, not sticking to the teeth and it's eggless! ^_^ It doesn't taste any different with other baked goods with eggs in them.

As I need to finish off some milk and I have most of the ingredients in my cabinets anyway, I gave this a try. The recipe is adapted from Anncoo Journal - Eggless Chocolate Cake. This will make about 15 pieces using 9.5cm egg tart mould.

  • 1 tsp instant coffee powder
  • 75g sugar
  • 200ml fresh milk
  • 80g dark compound chocolate, chopped
  • 80g salted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g natural yoghurt
  • 150g cake flour/plain flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  1. Heat instant coffee powder, sugar and milk together until instant coffee powder and sugar dissolved.
  2. Add chocolate and butter. Cook until they melted. Remove from heat and leave it to cool.
  3. Sift flour, baking soda and baking powder into another bowl.
  4. Then add vanilla extract and yoghurt into the bowl with liquid ingredients. Mix well with a hand whisk.
  5. Add sifted flour, baking soda and baking powder in 2 to 3 addition. 
  6. Mix well with the hand whisk to form a smooth and thick batter. (This probably will take a few minutes but try not to overmix. Stop once a smooth batter is achieved.)
  7. Spoon into greased mould to 90% full. (It doesn't seem to rise too much on the side, I wanted the side of the mini cake to be taller. To ease the clean-up of the moulds, put in cupcake liner.)
  8. Bake at preheated oven 180 degrees C for about 35 mins or until a skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes clean.
  9. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 mins before taking the cake out to be cooled on a cooling rack.
