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!
