Pear Crazy Cupcakes

Pear crazy cupcakes are cupcakes made without egg, milk or butter and need no fuss. The crazy cake is also known as depression cake or war cake and was made during the great depression.

The idea of making eggless, butterless or less sugar is to make a cake when there is a scarcity of ingredients. I added some peaches into these cupcakes to make them go with my letter and also a little flavour as well.

The recipe from where I followed the cupcakes also have a crazy cake recipe in which there is n need of bowls as well. The cake is baked directly into the cake tin. How crazy is that, right?
