If you love eggless red velvet cake as much as we do, then you are in for a treat. 

This  red velvet cake is super moist, perfectly sweet, flavored with a hint of vanilla and cocoa powder, and topped with whipped cream  frosting is a complete showstopper.

Bake these beauty to blend with your Valentine’s day theme, and I promise everyone will love them.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and line your Cake tin Set aside.
  3. Combine milk and vinegar in a bowl. Whisk it well. Set aside for 5 minutes to curdle.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, cornstarch, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and beet root powder.

    Once baked, remove from the oven and cool completely.

  14. Slowly add powdered sugar/icing sugar (spoon by spoon) and beat until it is well blended.

  • Sift the dry ingredients well. This will ensure there are no lumps of baking soda or cocoa powder in these eggless cupcakes. 
  • Baking soda + vinegar together starts a chemical reaction that helps the cake to rise. It’s a chemical reaction that produces carbon dioxide bubbles, and that’s what makes a cake/cupcake fluffy and light. Be rest assured, you won’t taste the vinegar in this recipe.
