Eggless Chocolate Cake
It’s been a while I baked a cake and eggless chocolate cake has been there in my mind for quite some time. Eggless chocolate chip cake is something that is liked by people of all age groups. Few don’t even need a reason to grab it. Personally, I would never skip a chance to bake an egg free chocolate cake. I prefer my cakes to be eggless but that doesn’t mean that I don’t bake them with eggs. Now because I was baking an eggless cake, I have used condensed milk as an alternative. Condensed milk is sweet enough to give sweetness to the cake and hence I have not used additional sugar. People who prefer their cakes to be extra sweet, may add sugar according to their taste.
Weekends and chocolate cake
A typical lazy weekend morning, my kid at home and husband not rushing for his office. Now all of this is a combination that triggers a lot of demands from the family to make something good for them. When I opened my refrigerator, I found some leftover condensed milk. I scratched my head (not in reality, but in imagination) and thought what I could do with it.
Diwali was all about Karachi Fruit Biscuits and Choco Chips Cookies. As the Christmas is nearing, so thought to bake a cake. The First thought was to bake an eggless vanilla cake with berries, but my kid’s love for chocolate made me think to make something chocolaty. I had to change my mind from a vanilla cake to an eggless cake.
