Eggless Chocolate Cake

September 2, 2011

This recipe is dedicated to all my vegetarian friends who love cake but are restricted to only the eggless variety. Now with a little experimentation here and there one can substitute chocolate with their favorite flavors and enjoy as much.

Eggless Chocolate Cake

For the cake:
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour (maida)
¼ cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
¾ cup melted butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
¾ cup water

For decoration:
¼ cup mocha or hot chocolate powder
¼ cup melted unsalted butter
¼ cup crushed nuts (almonds, pistachios)
3 tbsp sweetened chocolate syrup


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9” round cake tin with vegetable oil or butter.
  2. In a mixing bowl, sieve together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda. Press the lumps gently that form in the sieve.
  3. Add in the condensed milk, melted butter, vanilla essence and water.
  4. Mix the ingredients with a spoon just until the mixture is uniform and smooth. There is a possibility for tiny lumps, but doesn’t matter too much.
  5. Pour the batter into the cake tin and bake for 40 minutes.
  6. Once done take it out of the oven and set aside to let cool.
  7. For the decoration, mix in the butter and mocha/hot chocolate powder stir until the mixture is like a smooth paste. Add or lessen butter to the desired consistency.
  8. Spread this mixture smoothly on top of the cool cake. Need to make sure the cake is cool or else the mixture will melt.  Now sprinkle the crushed nuts over this and use the chocolate syrup to draw some zig-zag design using a dripping spoon.
