Egg-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

We had a fun Easter dinner, but I think the best part was dessert.  So many Easter recipes feature eggs, but I found this Egg-Free Chocolate Cupcake recipe with Orange Buttercream Icing.  I should have made the icing a different color, to avoid the ‘Halloween look’, but these were great tasting cupcakes.

The cupcakes use basic ingredients like flour, and sugar, and cocoa powder, with chocolate chips for good measure.  You don’t need flax, or chia or any other egg substitute; the recipe just works.  They are so moist, they stick to your fingers when you eat them.

The frosting is a basic butter/powdered sugar blend, with orange juice for flavor and gelatin powder for color.  So you really could make these any flavor and color.  This will be my new go-to recipe for holiday cupcakes!

  1. I am so happy that you found a good recipe that did not require eggs or a substitute.
    Sounds like our “little one” enjoyed it–orange frosting and all!

  2. Hi Kerry — I’m so glad that you liked my recipe!! They were a huge hit with all of the kids in our family last summer and is definitely my ‘go-to’ egg-free dessert recipe. I’ve used that icing several times (even for the purse cake I made for my daughter) and I think using strawberry jell-o is my fav. 🙂

    I have a few more egg-free recipes on my blog if you’re interested (and all of my recipes are – or can be made – peanut/tree nut free). Thanks so much for stopping by!
