This recipe is similar to my chocolate cupcakes recipe. Vinegar is used to make it spongy, light and soft. This is also Vegan orange chocolate cupcake recipe except the frosting.

I have made orange flavored frosting and it makes cupcakes more orangey. I just love this orange and chocolate flavor combination.

I am very obsessed with eggless baking. In the result of that you will find a huge collection of eggless recipes on the blog. I will be posting more eggless recipes here as I do bake a lot.

If you are baker then you know that whenever you bake something with orange, the whole house is filled with nice aroma. I have orange cake recipe on the blog and orange chocolate chip muffins recipe I have just shared.

I have made only 6 cupcakes but recipe below is for 12 cupcakes.
