Eggless, Butterless, Milkless Chocolate Cupcakes

…with dark chocolate frosting!

I was craving to bake (and eat) a cupcake at 9pm, but out of eggs.  Not to worry!  This recipe doesn’t contain eggs, butter, or milk – so if you have an allergy to any of those ingredients, this is also a great option to get a chocolate cupcake fix!  Additionally, it’s healthier, unless you decide to smear it with dark chocolate frosting… like I did. :)  The frosting does contain butter and milk.

They get a light crust on the outside and are soft in the center.  I cut the sugars down in half as a matter of preference.  The recipe is for cake, but halving the recipe yields a dozen cupcakes…350F for 15 minutes (my oven his hyperactive though).  Definitely spray the muffin tin with oil or use cupcake liners to avoid potential sticking.
