First of all, my apologies to all those who have been continuously asking me for an eggless chocolate cake. This has been a long pending recipe. Finally, I am with my no-fail, tried and tested, triple chocolate cake recipe with whole wheat.
Moreover, if you were looking recipes for a chocolate birthday cake, this eggless chocolate cake recipe is for you.
My Ladoo is an active participant of speech and drama in his school. He has seen me making video recipes for quite some time now. As a consequence, his interest towards making his video recipe started growing. His love for chocolate is second to none. And there is no wonder that chocolate tarts and chocolate muffins are his all-time favorite snacks.
This time when he heard about making the triple chocolate cake, he popped out of his seat. I was a little hesitant at first because I know it’s not an easy task. But when he insisted me, I then said okay to him. In fact, he has been baking with me for long now and understands basics of baking. Therefore, for this chocolate sponge cake, he only took 10 minutes and grasped everything.
Watch my junior master chef making his first video recipe. I wonder if he is one of the youngest YouTube chef. Felt excited when Jayashree Trao from Evergreendishes.com featured this recipe in her Mega Diwali Collection post. Thanks Jaya.
