Picture of Custard Powder Egg Less Cupcake

This is an egg less version of cup cake. Here the custard powder gives a different taste to the cake. The custard powder acts as an egg substitute here. Do try  it out :) I have used and egg free custard powder.

Note : If any one is allergic to eggs please check out the ingredients of custard powder. There are brand that are egg free. So you can use that brand if you want to completely avoid egg.

Hi Nimitha, I tried your recipe after a long day at work. Just goes to say that they went down a storm with my wife and 2 daughters. Didn't come out as yellow because I used instant custard mix, due to a lack of ingredients. But the flavour was awesome! Especially fresh out the oven :-)

it sure looks many cupcakes does it make?

BakeitUp (author)Ananya S Rao2014-03-19

Thank you... It makes about 12 cup cakes of the basic size.. I made cupcakes of two spoon full of the batter in each mold... Hope this helps you.. :) :)

i was wondering how it would taste if i added dark chocolate. any clue?

BakeitUp (author)Ananya S Rao2014-03-22

May be we can just take some amount of batter and mix it with melted chocolate. Then the amount of milk should be reduced a little Then create marble effect or swirls using both the custard batter and the chocolate batter. This is just an idea.

I think the gluten free flour mix caused them to 'pop' open, but they taste fantastic! This will now be my 'go to' recipe for picnics and parties ;-) And, because my cup cake tray is quite shallow, I got a massive 24 cake yield! Thank you so much for this tutorial!

Thank you so much for trying and the wonderful comment :) Surely encouraging :)

You do know that custard powder contains egg powder, just incase anyone has allergies.

BakeitUp (author)ukjesus2014-03-19

Thank you for the valuable comment. I used an egg free brand. Bird's Custard is also egg-free custard. So in case any one is allergic do check the ingredients. I will surely update this information.
