Eggless chocolate cake recipe
Last month I tried this eggless,super soft,moist & spongy basic Chocolate cake recipe for my FIL’s birthday.I wanted to share this as my new year’s post but i couldn’t do it.This post was lying in my drafts.As i am out of station,i thought of sharing this post today. I tried to do icing/frosting for the cake but it was not goodSilly.I must learn to do it perfect.But the cake base was a super hit at home.I have tried eggless chocolate cake with condensed milk for my black forest cake recipe.So i was looking for a recipe without condensed milk & butter.I came across this recipe Sharmis blog,made a small change and tried it.It came out very well.I have baked this cake so many times for Raksha’s school Christmas & New year party but without icing.I just made a simple decoration by drizzling some Hershey’s chocolate syrup and sprinkled some sugar balls. All her friends loved the cake and asked her whether your mom is a chefLaughing.This was the best complement i’ve ever received for my baking.And now i am happily sharing this fool proof recipe with you all.Try it for your family and take the credits.Ok,lets see how to make this eggless,spongy,moist chocolate cake recipe using oil.If you wish to try this cake using pressure cooker,please refer THIS POST for the baking procedure.

    1. Hi Preetha,
      As you are a beginner, its good to read the oven manual.Most of our doubts will be cleared.In the cookbook given with oven, some cake recipes must be there. Try anyone of them as per the instructions. You will get some idea.As per my knowledge, if the cake browns of top and not cooked inside, it must be due to uneven heating. So its better to cover the top with a foil and reduce the temperature to 160c, bake for more time. check with toothpick before removing the cake.Hope it helps :)

  5. Thanks for the feedback Harini :) Regarding cream: As your cream has become butter, just check whether it tastes good. If not beat more and make it butter completely. Add some vanilla essence. Mix well. You can use it as simple butter cream frosting. If you don;t like its taste, you should buy amul cream or butter and make the frosting again. Hope this helps Harini :)Pls update me on what you do :)

  7. Hi my daughter got me milky mist fresh cream once again as Amul was not available.this time it came out very well.and i made black forest cake a as she wished.
    first time I kept the cream pockets in chill tray with milk pockets as I was planning to use two days later.so it got freezed like ice.even though I thaw it for some time.this could be the reason why the whipped cream turned into butter.this time I just refrigerated for 3hrs and whipped and it came out well.and regarding the previous whipping I whipped fully and got butter.it is sweet in taste as I added icing sugar to it.what to do it now.can I use it for making cookies or cake or just whip up some cocoa powder to it and whip once again.ll it be nice?please tell me.thanks in advance.
