Baking is the number one challenge for vegan cooks. How do you create moist, flavorful, and lofty cakes without using eggs? The recipe below proves that it is possible. These cupcakes rise up like you wouldn’t believe, and they’re full of banana flavor. They’re even topped with a luscious vegan coconut buttercream.
The trick to getting your baked goods to rise without eggs is to use a combination of an acid like vinegar and baking soda, which is activated when it comes into contact with an acid, creating bubbles. Bubbles are what make your cakes airy. These cupcakes are the very delicious result of one simple and fun science experiment.
