eggless rainbow muffin recipe
I had a long time wish to try out this rainbow muffin, though my wish was to try cake rather than muffin. I sent this rainbow muffins to Kungumam thozhi last month’s edition. As I am just back from my tiring trip to Indian, no mood to get back to blogging. Taking my own time to get back to the swing. I will be posting my video recipes from next week sure, meanwhile you can enjoy these step by step recipes. My trip was so hectic that out of 8 days I was in travel for 5 days. In between you can imagine how the 3 days would have flown away! Winking. Our regular visit to temple and visiting couple of  relatives and an awesome trip to Bangalore and had great time with my brother, sis-in-law Chitra, parents along with my in-laws. Bangalore and Mysore was too good, loved the food a lotBig Grin. Now back to my routine life. This rainbow muffins is with the eggless vanilla cake recipe as base, just added food colours to it.

Eggless rainbow muffin recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Continental  |  Recipe Category: Dessert
Prep Time15 mins     |  Cook time: 15 mins     Makes: 8 muffins

Ingredients

Maida/ All purpose flour – 1 & 1/2 cup

Corn flour (Starch) – 3 tbsp

Curd (Plain yogurt) – 1 cup

Sugar – 3/4 cup

Oil – 1/2 cup

Baking powder – 1 tsp

Baking soda – 1/2 tsp

Vanilla essence - 1 tsp

Pink, blue, yellow, green food colour (liquid) – 1/4 tsp each

Salt – A pinch


Method

  1. In a mixing bowl, take maida and take out 3 tbsp maida from it. Add 3 tbsp corn flour to it and mix well. Keep aside.
  2. 1-step
  3. In another mixing bowl, mix curd, sugar and salt until sugar is dissolved completely. Add vanilla essence, baking powder and baking soda to it. Mix it and you will get a frothy mixture. (Will see bubbles in it)
  4. 2-step
  5. Add oil to this batter and mix well.
  6. 3-step
  7. Now mix the flour 1/4 cup at a time and mix well. Finish all the flour the same way.
  8. 4-step
  9. Meanwhile, pre-heat oven at 180 deg C. Divide the batter to 4 in 4 different bowls and add food colours to it. Line a muffin tray with muffin liners. Add one tbsp of each coloured batter as shown in the picture. Blue first, green second, pink third and yellow last.
  10. 5-step
  11. Bake at 180 deg C for 20 mins or until a knife/ toothpick inserted comes out clean. Once done, leave the muffins in the tray itself for 10 mins. Then take out carefully and cool over a wire rack.
  12. 6-step

Notes

    • Muffins will stay good for 3 days in room temperature. Just keep in a muffin rack. No need to keep in an airtight container.
    • If there is a moist top over the muffin, its natural, dust with sugar powder to absorb the moisture.
    • You can use your favourite colours.
    • Fill the muffin liner only with 3/4th of the batter.
    • I tried using different flavour, it was good. Just 2 different flavours though.

For me, Muffins taste and smells great next day. It could be coz, since I bake, I get saturated with the smell of it. Tongue

  20. Tried your recipe.. tasted well except that my muffins got cracked at the top and was a bit dry on top alone.. If I bake it for lesser time then it's not cooked in the center.. Wat do I do?

    1. I think you are over mixing the batter. Try mixing with a spatula instead whisk next time. Other reason could be more baking powder/ cooking soda.

    1. Little more water to the batter will solve the problem. Also make sure not to over mix.
