well to be honest, this cake recipe is my first baked recipe using conventional oven. till now i have always used my small stove to prepare all the veg recipes. even my previous eggless sponge cake was in cooker and not oven. however, i am starting with new section of recipes prepared with conventional oven. when i started the hebbars kitchen journey, i had the principle of preparing only basic recipes with my small stove. however, due to several request, i am today sharing the simple eggless chocolate cake recipe.

furthermore, some important tips for a perfect moist sponge eggless cake. firstly, even though we term this cake as chocolate cake recipe, vanilla essence has to be added to cake batter. vanilla essence when combined with cocoa powder, enhances the chocolate flavour. secondly, after adding condensed milk and butter, beat it properly with hand blender or whisk it. after adding dry ingredients like plain flour and cocoa powder just fold it and do not beat it. lastly, if you are preserving this cake for a week or so, use oil instead of butter. typically, butter solidifies after a day or so and the cake turns solid.

finally, do check my other international recipes collection and eggless cake recipes collection from my website. i have posted basic eggless sponge cake recipe, eggless chocolate mouse, eggless mug cake recipe, french fries recipe and veg pizza recipe on tawa. in addition i request you to check my other recipes collection like,

    Hello Hebbar
    I tried your recipe for first time on my son’s second birthday and it turned out amazing. I used oil instead of butter as my husband always complain that cake turns hard the second day after refrigerating. It is so soft and spongy even after refrigerating! Though i had to bake it for 45- 50 mins in my fan oven.
    Thank you!

    Can you please confirm if unsalted butter is available commercially as we do get lots of brands like Amul, Britannia or regional which make only salted butter.
    If replace butter with oil, any specific oil or just any refined oil will do?
