Eggless Pineapple Chocolate Chips Cupcake

After few sucessful baking I am more motivated to try more baking but still not dare enough to try something of my own.. So I tried to look for Eggless recipe. I came across this recipe in made some slight modification. It came out so well. As I try more and more I getting more confident to bake :-)

  • Maida - 1 and 1/2 cups (225 gms)
  • Cornflour - 1 teaspoon
  • Butter - 1/4 cup (50 gms) (You can replace it with oil too)
  • Granulated Sugar - 3/4 cup (185 gms)
  • Milk - 3/4 cup (180 ml)
  • Pineapple essence - 3/4 tsp
  • Salt - 1/2 teaspoon (if using unsalted butter)
  • Baking powder - 1 teaspoon
  • Chocolate chips - 1.5 tablespoon
Sift the flour, baking powder, cornflour and salt together atleast twice to make sure they are evenly distributed. Keep aside.

In a wide bowl, cream the butter and sugar using a whisk until the sugar is completely dissolved, Keep aside. Add pineapple essence to the milk, mix well and add the milk to the creamed butter sugar mixture. Beat it well until its light and creamy.
Now add the flour in 2 parts to the above creamed mixture and mix well. The consistency is inbetween thick and runny.

Add in the chocolate chips reserving half a tablespoon alone for the topping. Just fold in gently, dont overmix.
Arrange muffin liners in the pan and spoon the mixture to fill 3/4 of the muffin pan. 

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C and bake it for 25-30 mins until a fork inserted comes out clean.
