After a long hiatus, amidst the COVID crisis, with close ones staying at home, it is time to share a very simple recipe of chocolate cake, that too an egg-less one. It is always a joy to get back to baking whenever I feel to satisfy my sweet teeth. This recipe, in that sense is so quicker and easier that one can prepare it without much ado, anytime. Frosting for this recipe is purely optional and and one can easily do away with it. As I often follow the videos of “Joy of baking” for various preparations of cake, I am indebted to chef, Stephanie Jaworski, for this recipe too.
Egg-less Chocolate Cake
‘Fruitcake’ is ideal to be prepared on the occasion of ‘Christmas’. However, I missed the chance to make it in last Christmas. Few days back, on demand of my family I baked a super soft, fluffy and spiced fruitcake. Moreover the cake is egg-less as my parents become vegetarian few years back. The recipe is quite simple and does not need any electric hand or stand mixer. The reaction of buttermilk with baking soda gives the cake a soft and airy texture. I have used four types of spices in the cake batter which smells captivating while baking the cake. One will have ample amount of dry fruits with each bite of the cake. As the winter is still not over we can enjoy a slice or two with a hot cup of coffee.
