Easy Eggless Chocolate Cake

I am new in baking.  This is my first eggless cake. Yes, my first attempt is successful.

  • Plain flour (Maida) - 1 cup
  • Cocoa powder- 2 tbsp
  • Baking powder- 1 ½  tsp
  • Soda bi-carb- ½ tsp
  • Condensed milk- ¾ cup
  • Unsalted melted butter or homemade butter – 4 tbsp
  • Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
  • Walnut small pieces- ½ cup
  • 2 tsp melted butter for greasing 
  • Powdered sugar- 2 tsp (optional)
  • Water- 1 cup
  • Dark chocolate bar- as required
  • Cherries- 3

  • Sieve the plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda bi-carb together and keep aside.
  • Combine the condensed milk, melted butter, vanilla essence and mix well. If you like sweeter taste, add powdered sugar.
  • Add the prepared sieved plain flour-cocoa mixture and water and mix gently with help of a spatula. Add walnut pieces and mix well. The batter should be of dropping consistency.
  • Grease the cake tin with butter on all the sides.
  • Pour the prepared cake batter into a greased 175 mm. (7”) diameter tin and spread it evenly. (I used here 2 small heart shape mould.)
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 c (360 f) for 25 to 30 minutes or till done.
  • The cake is ready when it leaves the sides of the tin and is springy to touch.
  • When ready, remove from the oven, invert the tin over a plate and tap sharply to unmould.
  • Let it little bit cool. Grate the chocolate on it. Garnish with cherry.
