Eggless Choclate Cake

Eggless Choclate Cake
I can cook comfortably for a party of up even 40 people…but baking has eluded me so far….I’ve not been able to bake something with finesse or to my satisfaction and both….. This cake I tried many times and quantity of ingredients is just perfect and one can go ahead with confidence. It did taste different from a regular chocolate cake with eggs in it, but this was good for an eggless one The cake was very soft , spongy and moist.But the preparation was quite easy the cake is really worth trying and I really enjoyed making this cake. . One thing I have to learn is decorating the cakes. As soon as I baked it, I tried decorating it.. But It is not perfect.. May be good next time when I prepare it again:)

Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour - 2 cups

Baking Powder - 1 teaspoon

Baking Soda - 2 teaspoons

Unsweetened Cocoa Powder - 3/4 cup

Chocalate Powder-1/2 cup

Sugar - 2 cups

Milk - 1 cup

Butter- 1/2 cup

Vanilla Extract - 1 teaspoon


Method:

1.Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celcius.

2. Grease the baking pan with butter or oil or use a non-stick cooking spray. I used a 8 square pan.

3. Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and sugar into a large mixing bowl &Mix well.

4. In another bowl beat butter then add Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture while beating well in one direction. Keep beating until the entire dry mixture is fully incorporated.



5. Now add the milk slowly and beat for a minute.

6. Pour the mixture into the greased pan. You do not have to spread the mixture using a spoon, if the mixture is of the right consistency. Tap the cake tin to release any trapped air bubbles.

7.Place in the centre of the pre-heated oven and bake for 30 minutes. The temperature and baking time can vary from oven to oven. Hence, test the cake at around 25 minutes to see if it is done. . Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a wooden tooth pick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

8.Remove the pan and let the cake cool for 10 minutes. Invert it.

9. A rich moist yummy egg less chocolate cake is ready! Serve it with icecream! Yummmmmy!




Cake loved by all and especially kids, hence this is my entry for Madhavi's Lovely Children's Day Event

Good one Jaishree. I have not tried this recipe for an eggless cake. Regarding frosting, you have to wait until the cake cools completely. You can even keep the cake in the fridge to cool it. After taking the cake out of the oven, let the cake cool for an hour or so at room temperature. Then do a very thin coating with the frosting and keep it in the fridge. Then the next day or after a couple of hours do the full frosting.
