Calling all chocolate and Vanilla lovers! Do you love chocolate and vanilla in your cupcakes then why settle for one flavor? In this made-from-scratch cupcakes, chocolate and vanilla are swirled together in a simple one-batter to create the most light and fluffy eggless marble cupcakes. So soft that they’ll just melt in your mouth!

By now, you can tell that I love making cupcakes. It’s an easier way to keep a tab on your portion control. 😉  All the cupcake recipes on the blog are homemade, egg-free and delicious. 

But today, I am preparing these cuties for Mother’s day which is just around the corner. I have some yummy sweets lined up for this special day and the first sweet among my list is eggless chocolate-vanilla marble cupcakes. Eggless Marble Cupcakes - www.ruchiskitchen.com

Now on to the recipe!

To avoid the confusion I have arranged the ingredient list in a simple manner. The first and second part makes a white batter. For chocolate batter I have listed the additional ingredients separately.  You will love these cupcakes because – 

  • No fancy equipment or ingredients required
  • Easy to make
  • Egg – free
  • Has a wonderful texture and 
  • You get to taste the best of both the worlds – Vanilla followed by chocolate in every bite. 

So what makes these cupcakes so light and airy? 

The secret ingredient is Flaxseed meal. Flaxseeds are loaded with good stuff. It’s a –

  • Rich source of omega 3 essential fatty acids and fiber
  • Rich in phosphorus and magnesium
  • High in anti-oxidants 
  • Aids digestion
  • And an excellent substitute to eggs.   Eggless Marble Cupcakes - www.ruchiskitchen.com

Regarding the marbling part – it’s not that difficult.

You don’t have to swirl the batter in a fancy pattern. Simply do either one of these tricks- 

  1.  Pour one spoon of white batter at the base followed by a spoon of chocolate batter. Keep repeating till the cupcake liners are 2/3 filled.
  2. Do half and half – half of white batter on one side and half of chocolate batter on the other – shown below.
  3. Or simply layer the batter in the liners spoon by spoon and then use a toothpick or knife to make a round swirl or a star on top. 

Whatever method you choose, this recipe bakes into a deliciously soft, tender cupcakes. The flavor is so good that you can hardly taste the flax seed meal in your cupcakes. In fact, flaxseed meal adds a nutritional punch to these cupcakes. Eggless Marble Cupcakes - www.ruchiskitchen.com

Now, let’s talk frosting !

These cupcakes are so yummy and delicious as is that it really doesn’t need any frosting to dress them up. But if would like to add a zing to these cuties, then top them with homemade nutella buttercream frosting – recipe given.
