Chocolate Brownie (Eggless)

It isn't always easy to write the first post... a thousand thoughts cross my mind right now.. but then I am sure my writing skills shall improve with time.. hopefully ;)

A close friend's birthday came in Navratra and so cropped the thought of baking an eggless cake.. thanks to a recipe my sister shared and a few tweeks here and there.. DELICIOUS CHOCLATE BROWNIE CUPCAKES came as my end product :))

Oil - 1/2 cupSugar (powdered) - 3/4 of a cup
Curd - 1 cup
White Flour - 1.5 cups
Cocoa Powder - 1/2 cup
Coffee Powder - 1 teaspoon
Baking Powder - 1 teaspoon
Baking Soda - 1/2 teaspoon
Gems/Chocolate Chips - for garnish

1. Preheat the oven ;350 degrees F.
2. Place paper liners in a 12-cup muffin tray.
3. Mix Oil, Sugar, Baking Powder and Baking Soda in a bowl and keep aside for ten minutes.
4. Sieve the White Flour, Cocoa Powder and Coffee Powder together.
5. Combine both the above mixtures in a bowl along with curd and beat well (we could use an egg-beater too)
7. Crush the walnuts and add them to the batter and stir until mixed.
8. Fill the muffin tin till about the brim of the paper liners.
9. Bake until the batter rises (roughly 20 minutes). Insert a tester into the center of the muffin to check. (the tester should come out clean with no batter stuck to it) 
10. Remove from oven and let the muffins cool. Place them on a serving tray, garnish with gems/chocolate chips and serve.

It would taste great with a dallop of vanilla ice-cream and chocolate sauce.. slurrp :)
