Cakes with a Green Dot: Chocolate Cake

My love for baking cakes keeps growing and I desperately wait for the next birthday or another celebratory day in my family, when I can bake my next cake.

I personally believe that eggless cakes when compared with the egg based ones are spongier, rise higher, and are absolutely scrumptious. My family drools over the cakes I bake, so I have lots of testimony vouching for Cakes with a Green Dot. 🙂

Today I am going to share with you my recipe for a basic eggless chocolate cake.

Freshly Baked Chocolate Cake: Fabulously Risen, Spongy and Smells of Chocolate and Vanilla All Around

Ingredients:

  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 2 ½ cups plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ or ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1-2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 heaped tbsp cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt

Initial Preparations:

  • Warm Water in a Vessel
  • Grease the baking tin and dust with plain flour
  • Preheat the oven at 180⁰ C

Method:

  • Put condensed milk, oil, sugar and vanilla essence in a pan
  • Mix/blend the ingredients to ensure all the ingredients are combined well
  • Sieve a mix of plain flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cocoa powder a few times, to ensure all the dry ingredients are mixed well
  • Slowly put the dry ingredients in the condensed milk, sugar, oil and vanilla mix
  • Add a tbsp of warm water to allow the mixture to blend well
  • Use the conventional cut and fold method to ensure creation of vacuum in the batter
  • Add a pinch of salt and mix again
  • Pour the batter in the dusted tin pan and place in the preheated oven
  • This cake takes around 45 mins to 1 hour to bake
  • Insert a toothpick or knife to check, if it comes out completely clean the cake is baked. If not, bake for 5-10 more mins

The cake is ready. Let it cool in order to proceed to the icing part. 🙂

        Haha…agree with this to bits…it happens with me so many times…not just the icing, the edges go all crumbly if you try cutting the edges for a warm cake…i mostly decide to make the cake well in advance (atleast a day before the occasion)…and then keep it in the refrigerator….and indulge in some other task so that i dont keep opening the fridge door every 10 mins to check if it cooled 🙂
