Today i’m in a celebration mood ..Guess what ? Today my blog crossed 1 Million views.. Wow !! Isn’t it great news…?? It is a milestone for me..I had never dreamed of that when I started this blog in August 2013.Thanks to every one who has visited ,motivated me with their valuable suggestions and encouraging comments and feed backs. This is what keeps me going.. Do continue showing your love friends !! I celebrate this occasion with a cupcake .. Cupcakes ??!! Yes you heard it  right.. i am posting my first ever cake recipe at Cook With Smile today. And its the eggless Butterless “Chocolate Chips Muffins / Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cupcakes “.

I took an OTG few months back  and have been experimenting various eggless recipes since then. After few trial and errors now i can proudly admit i too can bake few basic stuff .. Haha.. there’s a long way though to master the designer ones..that would make my day .Hopefully some day it will happen.Just like alphabets starts from “ABCD”.. cooking too starts from learning basic recipes. Agree??

Before baking my first cake ,i was under the wrong impression that baking would be tough..might be not be a cake walk for everyone.Now i realize how wrong i was ..It’s so easy breezy,if you have the perfect recipe in hand.So today i have for you all a full proof recipe for eggless choco chip cupcakes.Its simple,yummy ,moist and spongy.My kids love it so much that i had to literally hide few from them for the photoshoot. I am sure you too would love them.. Here we go…

Servings 10 number


  • 1 cup All purpose flour maida,  (minus  2 tbsp)
  • 2 tbsps cornflour
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup or little less Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 1/4 cup chocolate
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Milk, for brushing


  • In a measuring cup take 1 cup maida and remove 2 tbsp from it .Add 2 tbsp of cornflour to the maida in the cup. So in total we have 1 cup of dry flour.
  • In large bowl sieve maida , corn flour ,baking soda and baking powder twice to ensure even mixing.
  • In another bowl take yogurt, oil ,sugar,salt and vinegar and mix nicely so that sugar dissolves.
  • Preheat oven at 180c for about 10 mins .
  • Now slowly start adding dry flour to the curd mix little by little.Beat well  with light hands in 1 direction until creamy and thick.
  • Add choco chips and vanilla essence and give a quick mix.
  • Line the muffin tray with muffin liners.
  • Evenly fill the muffin cup with spoonful of batter till 3/4 of the muffin cup.Once the batter is in the pan, tap the muffin tray on a countertop to release any large air bubbles in the batter.Top it with few more choco chips if you want.
  • Line the muffin tray in the centre of the oven and bake in preheated oven at 180c  for 20-25 mins or till a fork inserted into the muffins comes out clean.Just 5 minutes before completion of baking ,remove the cake and brush it with little milk.This gives a golden crust.
  • Allow the muffins to cool down in wirerack.
  • Enjoy the muffins as such or top it and decorate with your choice of topping..This stays good for 3-4 days without refrigeration.


  1. Don't fill the muffin liners more than 3/ 4 th else it will overflow while baking.
  2. Addition of vinegar makes the cake more fluffy .Vinegar reacts with baking soda and start the chemical reaction needed to produce carbon dioxide and give those batters a lift as they bake. In the end result you will not be able to make out weird taste or smell of vinegar.
  3. You can use normal granulated sugar or powdered sugar.
  4. Use curd at room temperature only.
  5. Do not reduce oil n curd quantity. That will the cake hard as its eggless.
  6. Once the batter is ready don't allow it to sit for sometime. You have to bake immediately.
  7. As a variation you can add orange rind/ lemon rind/ blue berrys etc for a different flavor.
