I just came back from most amazing holiday! It was one of our annual birthday trip. this time we chose mountains and did a road trip to Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh. More on that later. A day before leaving for my trip, I got a chance to celebrate my birthday in style! I baked a cake and shared with everyone who came to learn the recipe from me at Home centre in Viviana Mall, Thane :)
I have always liked cooking savories more than baking desserts but a girl gotta know a good decadent chocolate cake, right? This is an eggless recipe which uses condensed milk. I have never had a problem with it. Also, important thing is to use right kind of bake-ware. I have chosen silicon bake-ware from Home centre and my cake came out perfectly! I didn’t have to struggle with taking the cake out at all. No sticking, no breaking of the cake!
Eggless Chocolate Cake
Cocoa powder 1/2 cup
Refined Flour 2 cups
Condensed milk 1 can of 400 gms
Butter softened, 200 gms
Water 1 cup
Sugar 2 tbsp
Vanilla essence 1 tbsp
Baking soda 1 tsp
Baking powder 2 tsp
A pinch of coffee powder
You need to:
Preheat oven at 180 degree C. Grease a cake tin and keep aside
Sift the dry ingredients together i.e. flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder.
In another bowl, take the condensed milk, water, essence and butter and microwave on high for a minute. Take it out mix well and add sugar and mix.
Add flour mix slowly to this wet mix in 3 parts. Mix slowly to get a smooth batter. Do not over mix. Add coffee.
Pour the batter in greased tin and bake for approximately 40 mins. Let it cool then .
Optionally, you can cover it with chocolate ganache (Melted chocolate + cream) and sprinkles like I did :)
I also used their tart moulds to make savory puff pastry pesto tarts. This is what I like about their products – the versatility and ease of use.
