Best Eggless Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Buttercream frosting

This moist eggless chocolate cake has a soft tender crumb. In this recipe, instead of using eggs and condensed milk I have switched them with flax meal and yogurt. You must try this recipe and I am sure you will love it. This chocolate cake is decadent, super moist and easy to make. My all time favourite.

Ingredients :

  • 1½ cup  Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • ¾ cup Cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ½ cup Oil
  • 1 cup Powdered sugar
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Yogurt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda 
  • 2tbsp Flax meal (soaked with 3 tbsp of water)

Procedure :

  1. Sieve all the dry ingredients which are flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Repeat the procedure three times then keep aside.
  2. Beat oil, powdered sugar, brown sugar, yogurt, vanilla essence for 5 minutes, then add flax meal paste and beat again for 1 minute.
  3. Gently fold the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  4. Bake at 180°C for 25-30 minutes in an 8 inch cake pan lined with parchment paper.
  5. If you want, cut the cake horizontally and spread buttercream frosting, and place the other half of the cake. Finally, decorate the cake on the top.

Ingredients for Vanilla Buttercream Frosting:

  • 175 gms butter
  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • A pinch of salt

Procedure:

  1. Using a hand or stand mixer, beat the butter for 2 minutes, add rest of the ingredients and beat one last time for 2 minutes.
  2. Add more sugar if the frosting is too thin or add more milk if it is too thick. You can also add your choice of food colour.

Notes:

I have used a part of this cake and buttercream frosting to make cakesicles and also used a heart shaped cutter to cut the other part of the cake and serve with buttercream frosting.
