A SIMPLE EGGLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE- Baking for beginners

Eggless Chocolate Cake




Its my hubby's bday and i was on the spree of baking. I have never ever baked a cake in my life!. Ya i know thats really sad :(. But then i stated off making this simple cake and initially i had trouble with knowing the temperature of the oven, i got the cake all torned and burned! But then i m not a person who will accept defeat so fast. So i baked again and Voila!! I got a beautiful cake which my hubby did appreciate a lot. As i thought baking is actually not so hard and after all, its fun :)

Ingredients:

All purpose Flour/Maida - 1.5 cup
Unsweetened cocoa powder - 3 tbsp
Baking Soda - 1 tbsp
Brown Sugar - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Salt - a big pinch
Vegetable Oil/Butter - 5 tbsp
Vinegar - 1 tbsp
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Water - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup ( i used low fat)

For the Frosting:
Cooking Chocolate - 200 gm
Butter - 100gm


Preparation:

Sieve Flour, cocoa powder, baking soda for about 2-3 times to evenly mix the powders. Then add in the oil, vinegar, salt, sugar, vanilla extract, milk and water. Whisk nicely the mix till you get a smooth thick batter.


Meanwhile preheat the oven to approx 180C. Grease the cke tin with butter or oil and pour in the cake batter. bake the cake for 20-30 mins till you get a tooth pick clean when inserted into the middle of the cake. Aloow the cake to cool completely.

Preparing the Frosting:

Melt the butter in a microwave or through double boiler (Keep a pan on top of another pan filled with water). Then add in the cooking chocolate and melt. Keep aside the mixture to cool down till you get a thick texture. Take saptula and spread the choclate texture over the cake.



yuummmmmmmmmm... I didnt have any cream with me to decorate so with my little kiddo i decorated the cake with m&m's :).... how better can it get!
