I’m anticipating that some of you may want to know if this vanilla cupcake recipe can be made without eggs. I have not tried doing this myself so am not entirely sure, but given my success at experimenting with egg-free baking (and remember I use only grain-free ingredients), I very much doubt it.

In terms of your other substitution questions regarding this recipe (as well as others), as I have said for years, I wish I had a crystal ball and could predict which substitutions would work and which wouldn’t. Unfortunately, I haven’t yet found such a thing (if I did it would save me the 10 rounds or so I do of testing every recipe on this website). The only way I get an answer to a substitution question is to test it out. With real ingredients. So go for it guys. Test out your substitutions, and after you do, leave a comment so that others can learn from you. Let’s all teach each other.
