There is lot of demand for eggless baking which i never heard of before..Many people requests for eggless cake recipes through this blog..I have tried recipes without eggs for cakes which has comes out really good and very easy too..One of the best thing on eggless baking is you dont need a hand beater and no careful folding of batter...Though i have many recipes on eggless baking,I want to try this one which is making a big round in many magazines here..The AD for nestle milkmaid had a huge chocolate cake slice picture really took my breath for a minute.During my recent visit to bangalore,i received a booklet on the same too..Omg,Luks like this recipe is
chasing teasing me to bake.. :)
Butter-100 gms(at room temp)
Flour-1 cup(100 gms)
Baking Soda-1 tsp(I used half tsp)
Beat the butter and nestle dahi until light and creamy
Seive flour,cocoa and baking soda
Fold the flour in the mix,alternating with milk and condensed milk
Fold in the walnuts/cashews and pour into greased tin
Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes @ 170*C till tooth pick inserted in the comes out clean
Allow it to cool for 5 minutes and then remove from the tin
For the Chocolate icing
Condensed milk-1/4 tin
Just mix all of them to smooth icing
Here is my verdict on the recipe and the cake...
I did expected the cake will be little chewy since it had condensed milk...But the recipe is very clever proportions...It was equally balanced with the butter,sweetness and the rest...The cake is more dense,light,moist and fudgy..It holds the flavor of cocoa ,and to surprise it is not sweeter in taste..
