Eggless Choc Chip Cupcakes

When you look at the above picture, are you thinking exactly like what I am thinking? To me, it looks like chocolate cookies hehehehe …..
Too bad, they are not but cupcakes. :)

It never rise completely that I suspect maybe I spoon out too much to the cup liners, resulting the batter overflowed from the cup instead of form a domed-shaped. :(
But most important, this cupcakes came out soft and tasty.

Thanks to The Batter Baker for sharing this simple and easy recipe.

125 gr Milk
1 tbsp Cocoa Powder
50 gr Oil
1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence (I used Rum essence)

110 gr Flour
1-1/2 tsp Baking Powder
70 gr Sugar
90 gr Choc Chips

- Preheat oven to 190C
- Warm the milk and dissolve the cocoa to release its flavour (Do not need to wait until it boil, switch off the fire)
- Add in oil and rum essence.
- Combine all dry ingredients into a separate bowl.
- Pour the wet ingredients into dry ingredients, stir till just combined (do not overmix). Batter will be lumpy.
- Scoop into cup liners.
- Bake for 15 mins or until cook.

Yields : 10 Mini Cupcakes


  1. I should keep this recipe handy so that I can still do some baking when I run out of egg.

    Yes, I tot they are choc cookies at first glance.

  2. hey, this looks familiar ;)
    Thanks for giving my recipe a try. Yours turned out looking really nice. And the colour of your cups complement the cupcakes very nicely! Your version must have tasted really yummy with the rum essence.

  3. hahaa...the first picture really looks like cookies. I would like to try this, thanks for sharing.

  4. Yes, one look and sure looks like cookies, lol! Love the crackle top, must be crunch outside soft inside, yum! Is it because no leavening agent was added, that's why it didn't rise?

  5. The cupcakes look moist and chocolatey!

  6. You are right, I too thought it was cookies. This is really cute, might attempt this for next week.

  7. Cook.Bake.Love,
    You are right! It's fun to make and yummy too.

    Thanks very much to you too for sharing this recipe with us.

    hahahaha ... I just realised it too once uploaded the pictures to the computer :)

    Honey Bee,
    There are Baking Powder used in the recipe, just maybe because I pour too much batter into cupliners instead of 80%. The cupcake raised to sideways instead of to top hahahaha .... I guess.

    Thank you.

    Thanks! Give a try! It's simple to do and taste delicious too. Looking forward to your beautiful version. :)

  8. Hahaha... I really thought they are cookies, very yummy chocolate cookies...haha

  9. DG, I thot those are cookies too, looks good!

  10. Ya la looks like cookies,will give it a try

  11. Neyeeloh, Jess & Chik Mimi,
    Hahahaha ... so I ate chewy chocolate cookies and cupcakes at the same time. :D

  12. I am really surprised that this is not cookies. Lol. You got me there. Haha. Maybe I should trick my kids too. Actually they are asking me to bake some cookies or cup cakes. This one will have them both. Chocolate chip cookies and chocolate cup cakes in just one recipe is such a great idea.

  13. Rose White,
    Thanks for visiting & lovely comments Hahaha ... I prefer my cupcakes have a dome top, but you prefer like mine to surprise your kids. LOL.
    Happy baking!

  14. Those are really awesome. I can’t wait to taste cookies like those. Thanks for sharing this wonderful and yummy cookie recipe.

  15. I tried this and am really happy with the end result. The cake was simply yummy and it is definitely a good recipe and will do it again when I have vegetarian guests.
