Eggless Chocolate Cake


When I came across this recipe from one of my fav blogs Ruchik Randhap, was wondering how an eggless cake would turn out to be.  it was quite delicious.  My daughter took the same to school for her friends who were quite excited especiall the ones who are vegetarians and dont eat eggs.

You Need:
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (or maida)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (I used Hintz dark cocoa)
  • 1 cup thick yogurt
  • 3/4 cup caster/powdered sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1-1/4 baking powder
  • 1/2 cup odourless oil (I used Borges olive oil)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract/essence
For the crumble
  • 1/2 cup chopped Cashew kernels
  • 1-1/2 tbsp granulated sugar (for the crumble)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract/essence

Preheat oven to 200 degree C. Line a 6" or 7" round tin with parchment paper.
Sift the flour & cocoa powder 2-3 times. Keep aside.
Beat the yogurt, sugar and vanilla essence on high speed. Add the baking powder & baking soda and whisk it lightly. Allow to stand for 3 minutes - you will notice that the mixture has turned a little frothy. Add the olive oil and mix well
Add the flour in 3-4 parts mixing until all the flour is well incorporated. The mixture will be rather thick but that's ok. Pour it into the prepared tin. Cover the surface with the chopped cashew kernels and generously sprinkle the granulated sugar and vanilla essence over it.
Bake at 200 degree C for 10 minutes and reduce the temperature to 175 degree C and continue to bake for 40 minutes or till the skewer comes out clean.
When done, remove and allow to cool for 30 minutes before turning over a wire rack to cool further. Remove the parchment paper carefully and serve.

Sirach : 31:27-31
My son, while you are well, govern your appetite,
and see that you do not allow it what is bad for you.
For not everything is good for everyone,
nor is everything suited to every taste.
Do not go to excess with any enjoyment
neither become a glutton for choice foods;
For sickness comes with overeating,
and gluttony brings on nausea.
