Egg-free yoghurt cupcakes

Egg-free yoghurt cupcakes



  • 2/3 cup vanilla yoghurt
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 1/3 cups caster sugar
  • 100ml rice bran or canola oil


Preheat oven to 180C.

Fill cupcake or muffin tin with 12 cupcake papers/casings.

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl or stand mixer.

Beat on low speed, graduating to medium speed until the mixture is well combined and smooth.

Spoon the mixture into papers/casings 3/4 full (this allows room for the cupcakes to rise).

Place tin in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked through.

Serve warm or cold!
