Eggless Chocolate Cake

Eggless_Chocolate_Cake_1 This is my first attempt to bake a chocolate cake. I am not much interested in chocolate so I never tried this. But seeing chocolate cakes in so many blogs I thought of trying it out. Amazingly it turned out well and my whole family enjoyed it. It was looking beautiful. I normally avoid frosting the cake, as my family does not like it. This time I tried that too.

Ingredients

  • All purpose flour – 2 cup
  • Cocoa powder – ¾ to 1 cup Eggless_Chocolate_Cake_2
  • Vegetable oil – 1 cup
  • Icing sugar – 2 cup
  • Milk – 1 cup plus 3 table spoon
  • Baking powder – 1½ tea spoon
  • Baking soda – 1½ tea spoon
  • Vanilla essence – 1 table spoon
  • Paneer or cottage cheese – 50 gram
  • Unsalted butter – 1 table spoon
  • Salt – ½ tea spoon
  • Drinking or club soda – ½ cup

Method

  • Sieve all purpose flour, cocoa powder, icing sugar, baking soda and baking powder twice or thrice; mix well with hands.

  • Grind together paneer, milk (3 table spoon) and butter (1 table spoon) to make a puree; then add this puree with oil, one cup milk, pureed paneer and vanilla essence in a mixi jar and run for few seconds.

  • Grease the baking container with little butter and dust with some flour; pour the mix and level it; I baked it in my microwave/convection/grill oven in cake mode by setting weight of the mix as 1200 gram; it took almost 55 minutes to bake.

  • I then did frosting by cutting the cake diagonally.
  • Frosting:
    • Icing sugar – 1 cup
    • Butter – ½ cup
    • Blend both items and do the frosting.

  • I also used cherry to garnish. Everyone in my family enjoyed this cake. Only frosting has not come out well as I planned due to power interruptions.

    @ Vanishree Venugopal,
    Baking cake in a pressure cooker (without using an oven) may not yield the desired results. I have not tried like that.
