Egg-less Vanilla Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Butter Cream Frosting

 A friend of mine asked me to bake some cupcakes for the potluck at her house. When we were calculating the numbers,  it was around for 40 People ( including kids). Then we both were discussing what cake to make for the party , we came up with basic vanilla cupcakes with my signature caramel butter cream frosting . Later we noticed the potluck was on a Friday and majority people don't eat eggs. So I decided to make these eggless version.

The cake was super moist , fluffy and everybody loved it . The Salted Caramel Butter cream accompanied the cupcakes really well. 


For the Cupcakes:                                                   Recipe source: Nita Mehta

APF - 2 + 2/3 Cups ( 300 gms )
Thick Yogurt - 1 Cup
Sugar - 3/4 Cup + 2 TBLS ( 150 - 180 gms )
Cooking Oil - 1/2 Cup
Vanilla Extract - 1 1/2 TSP
Baking Powder - 1 1/4 TSP
Baking Soda - 1/2 TSP

Butter - 2 Stick ( 1 Cup)
Icing Sugar -  2 Cups + 2/3 Cups 
Vanilla Extract - 1 TSP (Optional)
Caramel Sauce - 1/2 Cup or  Depending on your taste ( Recipe )
Fresh Cream /Milk - 1 TBLS


For the Cupcake:

  • Preheat the oven at 350 F.
  • Align the Muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  • Beat the sugar and yogurt till the sugar gets dissolved.
  • Now add the Baking powder and Baking soda . Mix well . Allow it to rest for 5 minutes. The mixture will be Bubbly and frothy.
  • Sieve the All purpose flour ( APF) to make sure there is no lumps.
  • Now add oil and vanilla essence  with the yogurt mixture and mix well.
  • Sift the flour in three batches and fold it.
  • Beat the batter for less than 30 Seconds to make sure there is no lumps in the batter.
  • Pour it in the prepared Muffin Pans and bake it for 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Once it is done , Allow it to cool in a wire rack .
  • Make sure it is completely cool before frosting them.
For the Salted Caramel Butter Cream:
  • In a bowl , Beat the butter till it is smooth and creamy .
  • Little by little add the icing sugar and keep beating till everything is combined well.
  • Add Vanilla extract and caramel sauce . Beat it till everything is mixed well.
  • Lastly add the cream/ milk and beat for another minute.
  • Put the icing in the piping bag and decorate as you wish.

  •  If you are baking anything eggless try to bake it on the day of the event/ Party.
  •  Eggless Cake/Cupcakes tend to go harder the next day.
  • You can Spray some Sugar syrup to keep the moistness.
  • I feel eggless cakes/cupcakes are lesser in sweet than the usual cakes so I normally prefer buttercreams especially Caramel buttercream / Chocolate Buttercream for the eggless version .
  • Caramel sauce can be stored in a airtight box/bottle and refrigerate for more than a month.
