Eggless Pineapple Cupcakes / Pineapple Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting

Egg-less Pineapple Cupcakes

Last month i thoroughly enjoyed making few cakes and bakes.  But my wish to bake cupcakes and muffins which did not turn out well as i could not find a perfect muffin tray that fits into my oven. Recently when i went to supermarket i found these individual muffin cups , so thought to get one. Then again i have to found the muffin liners to fit into it and finally got one. Finally i baked my cupcakes as a valentine special recipe.

Mithu likes to take cupcakes as snack  to school. So i tried these egg-less pineapple cupcakes and of course with no butter. I tried butter cream frosting in small quantity just to decorate 3 cupcakes and put my piping bag to use.  I had to search a lot for egg-less pineapple cupcakes and most of them were with egg and some were cream cakes and finally found it here. This cake has a subtle flavor and the tiny pineapple chunks in the cupcakes will make anyone carve for one.

Normally most of my cooking and clicks are taken after sending mithu to school. This too was like that. So i was in a hurry to take the clicks before mithu comes and the day was out of  bright light due to the rainy climate here. 
So  now onto to the recipe..
