My friend and support team leader extraordinaire, Carol shared her recent Egg-less Cupcake Experiment. She tried three different recipes for egg, milk, peanut and nut free cupcakes with varying results. 1ST PLACE:Divviesrecipe forChocolate Cupcakeshad the right texture and a nice dome. Carol, did you say that the icing didn't hold up as you expected?
2ND PLACE:The Duncan Hines cake mix with a can of soda. For yellow mix add white soda, for chocolate mix add a can of dark soda. The cupcakes did not dome as good as the Divvies Recipe, but they were good for a quick recipe, or a recipe for family and friends. Basically, you don’t add any other ingredients but the cake mix and the can of soda, but apparently take a few sips out of the soda first as it doesn’t need too much liquid.
3RD PLACE:The Duncan Hines cake mix with Ener-G Egg Replacer which you can buy fromwww.allergygrocer.comand other specialty markets. The cupcakes tasted fine, and domed a little better than the soda can recipe, but they were VERY fragile. They were separating from the liners when I was trying to get them out.
Carol asks if anyone knows how to make the Divvies recipe for yellow cupcakes. Anyone? Anyone?
