    Y u use vinegar in dis recipie ?
    Is dere any subtitute of vinegar ??

    • Aarthi

      vinegar reacts with baking soda in this recipe and makes this cupcakes extra soft and moist. You can add lemon juice instead of vinegar

    Hi Aarthi.. Could we omit the vinegar out of the recipe..or add an egg instead?

    • Aarthi

      NO vinegar is must in this recipe. If you want to skip it, you can add lemon juice instead.
