Eggless Chocolate Cake


  • All purpose flour : 1¼ cup
  • Baking powder : 1½ Tsp
  • Baking soda : 1½ Tsp
  • Cocoa pdr : 4 Tbsp
  • Powdered sugar : 1 cup
  • Cofee pdr : 1 Tsp
  • Honey : 2 Tbsp
  • Vegetable oil : ¾ cup
  • Milk : 1¼ cup

Sieve together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder twice. Keep it aside. Add milk, honey, coffee pdr and powdered sugar into a pan and heat it well. When the sugar melts completely, pour it into a mixing bowl and cool it. Then pour the vegetable oil into the cold mixture and stir it. Finally, add the dry ingredients and vanilla essence into it and combine well using a spatula or with a wooden spoon. Pour the batter into a greased 8 inch pan. Bake it for 40 mins at 180° C. It took 47 mins for me in an convectional microwave oven. 

Transfer it into a wire rack and cool it completely. Then garnish it with dark chocolate ganache and chocolate shards and fans.

For the Ganache :
  • Baking chocolate (at room temp) : 200 gm
  • Fresh cream : 200 ml

Chop the chocolate into small pieces. Heat the fresh cream till it starts to boil and pour it over the chopped chocolate. Mix it well until it melts completely. Cool it to the room temperature and pour it over the cake.
