Ingredients required for an Eggless Chocolate Cake –

 

Dry Ingredients –

All-Purpose-Flour (Maida) – We need all-purpose-flour or maida which is easily available at any grocery store or a supermarket.

Cocoa Powder – To make a delicious chocolate cake, the most important ingredient is a good quality Cocoa Powder. I use Hershey’s or Britannia cocoa powder which results is a rich chocolaty flavour.

Baking Powder & Baking Soda – Always remember to check the expiry date of baking powder and baking soda before using it. Else the cake will not fluff up as expected.

Sugar – Castor sugar or even powdered sugar will work for this recipe.

Instant Coffee Powder – Coffee powder enhances the chocolate flavour. I would suggest you to add it, however, if you want you can also skip it.

 

Wet Ingredients –

Oil (Unflavoured) – Use any unflavoured oil, I use sunflower oil for this recipe. The oil makes the cake moist and soft.

Curd – Use nicely whisked curd at room temperature. Curd gives a nice crumbly texture to this recipe.

Milk – Use milk at room temperature.

Hot Water – Hot water is required to make a coffee concoction. Add it at the end.

Chocolate Chunks – Chocolate chunks when melts while baking gives the chocolaty, delicious and yum taste. I would recommend you to use good quality dark chocolate for this recipe.

Make sure all the ingredients are at room-temperature unless mentioned otherwise.

Most common mistakes that people make while baking a cake and most common questions people have –

My cake did not fluff up as expected, it was dense, what could be the reason?

1. While baking a cake it is very important to sieve the dry ingredients like maida, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda in this case. This induces air and makes sure that cake turns out fluffy.
2. Overbeating the batter is another reason that cake does not fluff up. Overbeating removes the effect of baking powder and baking soda and any air induced during sieving the dry ingredients also die off.
3. Use the cut and fold method and mix all the ingredients gently without overmixing them.

 

Why did my cake sink in the middle?
1. The too-high temperature of the oven causes the cake to rise rapidly and then sink from the centre.
2. Opening the oven or kadai, too early or before suggested time, also causes the cake to sink in the middle.

 

Why did my cake become crumbly?
1. Overmixing or under mixing the cake batter makes it crumbly. It is very necessary to mix the batter nicely to combine all the ingredients thoroughly.

How to bake the cake in kadai –

In a heavy bottom kadai add a cup of salt or sand. Place a ring over it. Cover and pre-heat the kadai on high heat for about 10 mins.

Adding salt at the bottom ensures that the kadai doesn’t burn. Heavy bottom kadai acts as oven and ensures even cooking from all sides.

I prefer using cast iron kadai for baking.

 

How to grease a cake tin –

Spread oil in a cake tin evenly using the brush. Dust flour and spread all over, even on sides.

Remove excess flour.
