Eggless chocolate chip cake
Chocolate cakes are always loved by kids and my kids, Varsha and Varun are not an exception to this. In fact they love all my baking recipes. This is a double chocolate cake, which is always a super hit at our place. Few months back when we went for a beach picnic, a friend of mine baked this delicious double chocolate eggless cake. The original recipe is adapted from here. Varsha was too fond of the cake and was asking me to make this for her. I made once for her, and the next time when she asked i told her why can't you learn to bake it on your own. So here comes the post of eggless double chocolate cake from my sweet daughter Varsha suresh, who is turning 14 tomorrow. I just clicked the pictures for the step wise  pictures and the set up for the final picture was done by her.  Over to Varsha..

Hi. I'm Varsha. Amma talks about me in some of her posts so I guess most of you
know who I am. I love to eat more than cooking. I enjoy baking cakes and muffins.
I'm the one who usually brings  the cake for any of my friend's birthday and hence
I'm titled the "BAKER". Amma gave me an opportunity to write one of her posts. I
chose this one as its my  favorite cake recipes. The name of this cake speaks for
itself. It is the perfect choice for chocolate lovers. Most of my friends go head
over heels for chocolate (just like me :p), so I usually bake chocolate cakes. I've
baked this cake a couple of times.  Since many of my friends love chocolate I've
baked this cake for my friend's birthday, my teacher's birthday as well as for an
earth day fair. This cake has always turned out soft (for me) and remains soft even
when kept in the fridge overnight. When my teacher had tried it for the first time
she was very surprised to hear that an eggless cake had turned out to be very
soft. All of my friends love this cake.  Some have even asked me for the recipe . So
here is the recipe for a mouth watering double chocolate cake.

  12. i tried today.. but its too soft and breaks it while taking. it sticks to bottom of my pan even i dusted it. what went wrong? can u clarify me? i tried ur peas masala its was yummy.

    1. Thanks for trying. Regarding your doubt, either you must have take out from the pan when it still warm. Also timing varies from oven to oven. Cook it for few more mins and take it out from the pan once it completely cool

  13. mam pls reply. i want to know where i did mistake... inside nalla palapala innu varla, konjam wet ah irunthathu, y is it so?
