My best friend Elysia (the one that made the banner for this blog! Hi Elysia!) gave up eggs a bit more than a year ago so it’s been difficult baking her things she can eat that still taste the same with or without eggs. I found this recipe for “Coco Rouge Velour” cupcakes with no egg. It looked amazingly simple and delicious, so I had to give it a try!
These cupcakes were incredibly moist, even without egg to bind the ingredients together. They had the slight cocoa flavor, and were literally as soft as a pillow. They tasted the same as “normal” red velvet cupcakes – aka, amazingly delicious! The cream cheese frosting (listed oh-so-helpfully at that blog as well!) was also the best cream cheese frosting I’ve ever made and eaten! It wasn’t incredibly sweet as many other frostings and still had a distinctive cream cheese taste. I may have eaten three of these cupcakes in one sitting…others may have eaten more 🙂
