Minnie Mouse Chocolate Cupcakes (Egg-Free) with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting Recipe

My future sister-in-law asked for my assistance on making egg-less cupcakes for her niece’s 2nd birthday party. I was super nervous about making egg-less cake, but these turned out to be extremely moist and perfectly complemented by the buttercream frosting. And to top it off they are SUPER CUTE!

 

Chocolate Cupcake Ingredients
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp. of baking soda
1 tsp. of salt
1/3 cup of cocoa powder

1 tbsp. of vinegar

Chocolate Cupcake Directions
Mix all ingredients in a medium/large sized bowl until fully blended.
