These cupcakes' bright stripes and vivid colours evoke images of old-fashioned candy stores or the movie Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

This simple batter yields delicious cupcakes – better than any store-bought mix and well worth the extra minute or two it takes to measure the ingredients. Vanilla seeds add the luxurious flavour of real vanilla.
Simple ingredients, just one bowl and minimal mixing miraculously add up to the moistest, richest chocolate cupcakes ever. This is a go-to cake batter for any occasion – and it's egg- and dairy-free.
