Wow! what an incredibly easy recipe, made them with my grand daughter. I did the milk instead of water thing too, added a few mini chocolate chips. I was a bit puzzled over the no eggs factor as well, but I remembered my mom had a chocolate cake recipe like this we used often, the vinegar reacts with the soda and makes a very even rise. I think its a depression era recipe, no eggs no milk. And you really don't need any icing. delicious and oh so moist all on there own.....I couldn't resist eating one, diet be damned.
Used this recipe when i made cupcakes for a baby shower :) Very rich and moist, and I appreciate that these are egg less. A lot of the guests at the shower appreciated it as well. Very easy to make as well. Thank you so much for posting!
Just made these;<br/><br/>added 1/2 cup of chocolate chip morsels<br/><br/>baked them at 325 vise 350 <br/><br/>pulled them out when a knife stuck in them came out clean. <br/><br/>they were fantastic. Love the no milk recipe as my sister is going lactose-free and needed a recipe that would give full flavor and this one is it!
Excellent, simple cupcakes! I see this recipe floating around a lot online and I am so glad I tried it. I am making more today and going to add a scoop of cheeaecake filling.in the center. Mmmm!
These were a hit! I loved the texture, they did not crumble as others noted and they passed the hubby test. I did use whole milk in place of water but am excited to have a recipe that doesn't require dairy. I'm looking forward to experimenting with this recipe and altering for my gluten/dairy free friends!!! Thanks so much for the recipe!!! :)
This is the easiest cupcake recipe I have ever tried. They are so delicious and moist! I used fluffy vanilla icing for the topping.
Didn't like these at all, unfortunately. They didn't rise in the middle (my son said they looked like they had bellybuttons). The flavor was also really odd... like they were burnt on top, and they weren't very chocolaty. I did like that they weren't sickeningly sweet and they were nice and soft in the middle, though. I made them as directed, so I'm not really sure what happened. They got mostly good reviews, I'm kind of surprised they didn't turn out! Sorry I couldn't offer more positive feedback. :(
Great recipe and very easy and quick. They turned out really moist and chocolatey and rich. They were not crumbly at all as some others have stated. I did make some substitutions. Instead of 1 cup of water, I used a little more than half a cup of cream and a little more than half a cup of brewed coffee. I added the liquid until the batter was creamy and smooth, but not runny. I used half granulated sugar and half brown sugar. I prefer the rich taste of brown sugar to the taste of white sugar (just a personal preference). I also added dark chocolate chips. Thanks for posting!
The cupcakes were just OK nothing special. I had to add milk to make it thiner, it was very thick. Tastes kinda like a brownie in my opinon.
These cupcakes were absolutely delicious!! I followed the instructions with no substitutions, and added just a drop of peppermint extract (we are nuts for mint chocolate in this house). Made them with my 4 year old, and love that she could lick the beater! Paired with cream cheese icing, they disappeared in a day!! This is now my go-to chocolate cake recipe. Thank you for posting.
