Pumpkin spice cupcakes

An eggless fall treat to add a little spice to the fall season

As we all know, fall is just around the corner and fall baking recipes can be hard to find especially if you’re a vegetarian or allergic to eggs like me! What better way to start fall than with these pumpkin spice cupcakes?

Growing up finding an eggless cake was hard, so for every birthday custom ones were the only option which was on the pricier side.

So instead of finding the answer in a bakery or asking people to find the answer for me, I decided to try and see for myself how to make a cupcake without eggs.

Harjas Kaur, Features Reporter
Hi, my name is Harjas Kaur Chauhan, and I’m excited to enter the 2023-2024 school year as a sophomore here at SHS. This is my first year on The Journal, and I am a Features writer. I am so excited to meet new people and work with everyone this year. As I get to know you, I want you to know a little bit about me! So I grew up in a small town in New Jersey and was born into a Sikh family. I started speaking Punjabi when I was four and was surrounded by culture and family. I loved to read and go to the Gurudwara as a child. My background is still an important part of me, and I carry pride in being a Sikh. When I turned eight, I moved to Indiana. It’s really different because here I can’t just travel to New York on the weekend, which is why I don’t really like it, but I can’t say it’s all that bad because I met my best friend Simran here. I love watching horror movies with her. Thanks for checking out my bio, now go check out the rest!
