I started baking with my mom, when I was in class 6. I love to bake for my family and my friends. When, I had my kids and wanted to bake something good. This is the first time I was nervous to bake, as at all the time I was thinking whether my babies will like it or not?
With so many ideas and different ingredients keeping in my mind, I finally baked egg-less chocolate cupcakes with flax seeds for my 9 months old babies. They loved and now it became our family signature recipe . I just replace vinegar in my mom’s recipe with flax seeds. Nutty flavor of flax seeds is the key part in this recipe which my kids and hubby love!
Ingredients: 1 and ½ cups All purpose flour 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 and 3/4 cups sugar ½ cup unsalted butter 3 Tbsp ground flax seeds 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda 1 cup milk 2 tsp vanilla extract 1 cup boiling water A pinch salt Methods: Preheat oven 350 degree F. Grease and lined muffin/ cupcake pan. Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Take ground flax-seed and mix it in ¼ cup of water. Rest it for 2-3 minutes. Now in mixing bowl add melted butter, flax seeds mixture and milk and mix it together. Now add dry ingredients in it and mix very well. Add boiling water slowly and as needed , you might ended up close to one cup but not all. Consistency should be smooth batter which you can pour easily in mold. Pour batter in muffin/cup cakes mold. And bake it for 30 - 35 mins. Cool 15 mins before taking it out from pan. Make 8 - 12 servings. Note: You can add any dry fruits you like in it. I don’t add because my kids like it plain. Hope y'all like this recipe. I am glad to post my recipe for my lovely friend Mani!
