    Eggless Chocolate Cake is one of the quickest and easiest cake recipes that can be baked even by a beginner without any hassle and it turns out soft, spongy, moist, dark and decadent. Simple Home Made Chocolate Sauce or syrup goes very well on this cake.

    Step 1

    Take a large bowl. Add one cup curd and half cup of oil. Do use oil which has neutral flavors. For all my cake recipes, I always use sunflower oil as it is bland, neutral and there is no after taste felt in the cake. Oil also helps in making the cake soft and moist. Though you may use butter as well but oil helps to make cake soft and moist.

    Step 2

    Add one cup of powdered sugar by sieving. I have used raw unrefined cane sugar, however, regular white sugar can also be used.

    Step 3

    whisk all the ingredients together properly.

    Step 5

    Now gradually add one and a half cup of all-purpose flour (maida) to the wet ingredients and mix them well. pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk them together.

    Step 6

    Now add two tablespoons of cocoa powder. The most important ingredient contributing to the flavor of the chocolate cake is cocoa powder. It is important to use a good quality cocoa powder as this will affect the overall taste of the cake.

    Step 7

    Now add one teaspoon of baking powder, half a teaspoon of baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. The most important ingredient affecting the texture of the cake is the baking soda and it is important that it is fresh. If the baking soda is not fresh or past its shelf life, the cake will not rise.

    Step 8

    Now add one cup of milk and mix all the ingredients well. Make sure your milk, is at room temperature. This is important because room temperature ingredients emulsify better. While combining dry and wet ingredients, be sure to NOT over-mix. By over-mixing, you will knock out all the air and land up with a dense cake. Simply use an offset spatula and gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.

    cook it for 40 minutes. Do not open the lid of the pressure cooker many times. Only open it after three-fourth of the baking is done. For doneness check the cake with a bamboo skewer or toothpick. The bamboo skewer should come out clean.

    BAKING TIPS- Make sure all your ingredients, including milk, are at room temperature. This is important because room temperature ingredients emulsify better. While combining dry and wet ingredients, be sure to NOT over-mix. By over-mixing, you will knock out all the air and land up with a dense cake. Simply use an offset spatula and gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Let the cake cool completely before you start frosting it. You can eat this cake as it is or top it with frosting. You can either use a vanilla buttercream frosting or cream-cheese frosting.
