Chocolate-mandarin-coconut cupcakes (without egg)

I made those amazing cupcakes yesterday - I didn't have any eggs left, and it was too late to go shopping, so I looked for a recipe for muffins without eggs, then added some mandarins, cream and caramelized muffin crumbs. Simply amazing.

Here's the recipe:

Quick and easy chocolate muffins


  • 125g flour
  • 1.5 tsps baking powder
  • 0.5 tsp baking soda
  • 65g sugar
  • 3 tblsps cocoa
  • A few drops vanilla essence
  • 100ml water or fruit juice
  • 50ml oil
  • 1 tblsp vinegar
  • 200ml whipping cream
  • 1/2 can of mandarins
  • 50g shredded coconut
  • 3 tblsps butter
  • 3 tblsps icing sugar

Mix all dry ingredients. Add water, oil and vinegar, don't stir any more than necessary.
Fill into 12 paper muffin cups and bake for about 20 minutes at 180^C/350^F. Let cool.

Remove the top of all muffins, crumble them and put them aside, you will need them later.
Beat the whipping cream (if you want, add some sugar and vanilla essence). Carefully add coconut and mandarins, and distribute the mixture equally between the muffins.
Heat the butter in a pan, then add the muffin crumbs. Add icing sugar, and let caramelize while continuously stirring (be careful not to burn them).
Spinkle crumbs over cream.
