Eggless Chocolate Cake

            Hello everyone, Welcome to my blog, Aromatic Cooking. The recipes will be mostly of Indian origin, but I always like to try anything new, a slight change in the spices or vegetables added would sometimes end up in an entirely new dish. Most of the recipes will be my experiments in my kitchen. Thought I should start on a sweet note..

            This is a very easy cake, just mix in all the ingredients and bake, how much simpler can it get, an eggless version, but still very moist and light, and I would say, a low-fat version too..
Need To Have
  • All Purpose flour or Maida - 1 cup    
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder - 1/2 cup
  • Sugar - 3/4 cup
  • Baking powder - 3/4 teaspoon
  • Baking soda - 1 teaspoon
  • Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Fat free evaporated milk - 1 cup
  • Curd - 1/2 cup
  • Oil - 1/4 cup
  • Vanilla extract - 3/4 to 1 teaspoon
  • Butter scotch chips - 1/4 cup melted in little milk

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9" cake pan, I used a loaf pan. Take all  the dry ingredients in a large bowl, add the wet ingredients, mix well. The batter will be watery like idli batter. Pour it in the pan, mix in the melted butter scotch chips, bake it for 25 to 30 mins. Keep checking after 25 mins, cool it. Slice and serve it as such or with ice cream.

If evaporated milk is not available, can use milk that has been boiled to reduce to half the quantity.
Can leave out the butter scotch chips, can increase the sugar to 1 cup if you need a very sweet cake.
If you like frosting, can do the same, I left it out because everybody at home likes it plain.
