Five minute Eggless Chocolate Cuppy Cake for Two



It just happened to be one of those ultimate cake craving days - again. And because we are on a diet ;), no eggs, no butter, easy on the sugar. :( . So it has to be an egg-less, butter-less cake - and a cupcake - and just two of them - just to limit the servings and the craving... :P. This is what I whipped up, and it turned out to be just wonderful. I hope you would enjoy this moist low fat cupcake just as I did. 

Ingredients: 

For the cake: 

1. All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
2. Dutch processed cocoa - 1/4 cup 
3. Powdered or icing Sugar - 1/4 cup
4. Cold water - 1/2 cup
5. Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
6. Vinegar - 1/4 tsp
7. Salt - 1/4 tsp
8. Oil - 4 tbsp

For the frosting: 

1. Mascarpone Cheese - 3 tbsp
2. Dutch processed cocoa - 2 tbsp
3. Icing sugar - 3 tsp

Preparation: 

1. Pre-heat the oven to 360 F. 
2. Spray any non stick cooking spray on a cupcake pan. I used two small ramekins instead. 
3. Sift the dry ingredients one by one in a mixing bowl - flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, and salt. 
4. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients well with a whisk. Please keep in mind to add the vinegar only towards the end. 
5. Pour them onto the ramekins/cupcake pans and bake for 15 mins or until a toothpick inserted comes our clean. 
6. Once baked, keep the cupcakes on a cooling rack for 15-20 mins. 
7. To make the frosting, mix the three ingredients well. 
8. Add the icing on top of the cupcake once cool. 

Enjoy! :D
