Egg free, Dairy free & Peanut Free Chocolate Cupcakes & VLOG

*Welcome to Pamela's Heavenly Treats 1st VLOG*

This is new for me, doing a VLOG but I thought it would be fun, and it was.  When I watched the VLOG I was laughing at myself because my eyes were all over the place, sometimes it looked like my glasses were crooked LOL and I said blender and meant to say mixer, and I said vegetable oil and I use canola oil but I made it through.

I have 2 VLOGS because I didnt know how to combine them and my hubbie isn't here, he would know what to do! The first one is me talking about Pamela's Heavenly Treats, and making the cupcakes, and the second one is me showing you the finished product.  My camera man was Josef he did an awesome job.  I will try to do a VLOG each week!  Hopefully get better at it each week!

I made  a cupcake for people with allergies to eggs, dairy or peanuts, I didnt know how well the cupcakes were going to come out, because I tweaked some ingredients, but I have to tell you this is the best chocolate cupcake I have tasted.   I must be honest with you, they tasted better than my regular whole wheat chocolate cupcakes!  They were so moist, yummy, and had a delicious taste, and I saved making this healthy treats, because I didnt have to use eggs or buttermilk.  Without further adue!


1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
5 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup cold water
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)


Set oven to 350, for cupcakes makes 12-16, for cake grease 8x8 cake pan.
In a bowl combine flour, salt, light brown sugar, cocoa powder and baking soda, set aside.
Mix oil, vinegar, vanilla and water.  Add dry mix slowly.  If you want to add chocolate chips, stir them in.  Cupcakes bake for 18-20 minutes, Cake 8x8 bake for 40 minutes.  Cool on wire rack.

Easy Cream Cheese Frosting

1 8oz package cream cheese (softened)
1 stick unsalted butter (softened)
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups of sifted powered sugar
Orange Icing coloring

Combine cream cheese, butter and vanilla, slowly stir in powdered sugar until you get the consistency you want, (I wanted a thin frosting so it could look like a glaze on cupcakes) then add orange icing coloring and stir until your frosting is orange all over!  Frost your delicious cupcakes!  Add some festive sprinkles if you like!

  1. The cupcakes look amazing! =)

    Oh and I just wanted to let you know that I can't see the video. :/ it says, "This video is private."

  2. Good stuff! I happen to have all those things in the kitchen at this very moment, so I'll take that as God telling me to get baking.

  3. I gotta give props to all the "-" free bakers out there. I'm too scared to try anything gluten free, egg free, or whatever from scratch. My go to gluten free treats are Marshmallows and jell-o.
    I'd be happy to have you as a Sweet Sponsor. I look forward to hearing from you.

  4. How cute are you Pamela??! I LOVED watching you demonstrate your recipes in the vlog! Really nice to hear your voice, and watch you in baking action! I'm pinning this one! Have a blessed week!
