Eggless Chocolate Cake with Fudge Icing Recipe ~ Step by Step Eggless Chocolate Cake

>>  Sunday, August 17, 2014

We are starting the third week of BM#43 and I will be making some Eggless Cakes. Of course I only bake eggless cakes and muffins and if it's for this space, it naturally is without eggs. So you might wonder why I even specify that. Well that's just to bring home the thought that eggless cakes are as soft and tastier as those with eggs. And the fact that I get to eat them as well.

Off late things have been very hectic at home front. I practically don't get time to cook anything new during a week day. Back from work, I get just enough time to teach the boys. All this while they were getting tutored and we felt it would be good if we take care of it ourselves. So our hands are tied up more and don't find time at all for any experiment or even new dish. 

Imagine the weekend how tightly packed it's going to be. Anyway when I was deciding on the themes, I wanted to make sure I select only those that my kids will enjoy. It naturally had to be the cakes. I had my list of recipes shortlisted to be prepared, then I saw this recipe and wanted to make it right away. As I say I never go back and check on my cakes that I have already posted. I know I will go crazy myself, deciding if this measurement and combination has already been posted or not.

So in spite of having decided on a set of dishes, here's a different one made eggless with the usage of Curds, condensed milk. Muffins and Cakes differ in the way the ingredients are mixed. In cakes we always cream the fat, so even if one was supposed to make the cupcakes, the creaming part had to be intact and frosting done as well.

I was very particular I make the creamed cakes as the texture always turns more soft and crumbly. I wanted to be very adventurous and try ragi or jaggary in this cake, then felt I must first make the regular way and then think of changes. So this cake is very simple and straight and turns out very fine with great texture and holds itself.

I used a 8" round baking tin. The height is just enough for another layer to be place over this for a layered cake. The frosting turns out so good as well.
