Basic Moist Eggless Chocolate Cake Recipe

Moist Eggless Chocolate Cake

Sharing is caring!

Moist Eggless Chocolate Cake Recipe is the basic Chocolate Cake made with a mix of Cooking Oil and curds without using butter. This entire recipe comes together very quickly and makes any occasion a grand event.

This cake happened when Konda was bored and wanted to do something. She is still on summer vacation and all my collection of books came down to be read through this time. However, she suddenly felt she had to make some cake. She asked what cake I want and obviously, I said a chocolate cake. She picked up a recipe herself and though through the entire process she was on phone with me, trying to get everything right, it was entirely done by her and the cake was waiting for me when I went home in the evening.

The cake rose so beautifully and though a small bit was little burnt and turned slight hard, the other part of the cake was so moist and nicely done. She wanted a basic chocolate ganache to be done and I simply got both cream and chocolate melted and made it in Microwave. It was really such a bliss having somebody bake a cake for you and you keep enjoying every slice of it.

I asked her if I could share this recipe for the Mother’s day Special dishes as this is something I would love to enjoy again and she said I don’t even have to ask!

We are starting the BM#88, Week 3, where I will be sharing some dishes that were part of our Mother’s Day Special.

P.S: I have given up cross checking if I already have this recipe proportion on my sites. So chocolate cakes will come as they come!
