Eggless Chocolate Cake

After a long time, am going on a long drive with my school friends today. I have made eggless chocolate cake for my friends.

 The eggless recipe which I had needed condensed milk which I didn’t have. So I browsed the net for eggless recipe without condensed milk.


I took the recipe from a site called This recipe has been posted by Dassana Amit. Friends, I have followed her recipe almost exactly with very few changes and very happy to say that it has really come out well:)
Maida ( all purpose flour)- 1 cup
Cocoa powder- 1/2 cup
Castor sugar- 1 cup
( in that recipe it was powdered sugar).
Baking powder- 1 tsp
Cooking soda- 1 tsp
Salt- 1 tsp
Oil- 1/2 cup
Hot water- 1/2 cup
Cold milk- 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence- 2 tsps
Yogurt- 3 tbsps
For the chocolate ganache
Butter- 4 tbsps
Dark chocolate- 1 cup
Cocoa powder- 3 tsps
Walnuts- 10-12
Almond flakes- 1/4 th cup
Preheat the oven to 180 deg cel.
Grease and dust an 8 inch square pan and keep it ready.
In a bowl sift together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Keep aside.


In a bowl whisk together 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup hot water till well blended. Let it cool down a bit.

Once done add the milk , sugar and vanilla essence. Beat well.

Add the yogurt and beat again.


Now gradually pour the dry  ingredients into the wet ingredients and beat them together well.



Pour it in a greased tin.

Bake it for 35-40 minutes at 180 deg Cel  till the toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Remove the cake and let it cool completely on a wire rack.


Frosting the cake with chocolate ganache.

Melt together butter and chocolate in a microwave ( 1 min) or in a double boiler.

I used the microwave. Blend them well till it becomes a smooth and thick sauce. Add the cocoa powder and mix well.


Dip the walnuts in this chocolate ganache to coat it completely and chill it in the fridge to set.



Slice off a thin layer of cake from the top to make it smooth.


Pour the ganache over it and let it drip on the sides to form a pattern by itself.

Smoothen the top with a spatula.

Arrange the chocolate coated walnuts on top, sprinkle the almonds flakes and leave it to set for some time.


Cut into squares and serve:)
