Eggless...Perfectly Perfect Chocolate Cake for Eggless Baker's Group

When Gayathri announced this month’s challenge I had absolutely no time to think about it. I had so much on my mind with the coming Blogging Marathon # 25  celebrations  and then the hang over, I completely forgot about the challenge. Finally I decided to bake the cake using the egg replacer that I had got from US.I decided to make half the recipe, but Archana Potdar was all ga ga over this cake and said I would repent later.So, yes I made the full recipe .Made some cup cakes, a bundt cake and a medium cake. Frosted cakes are always eaten by my niece and me, so I just frosted the cake with Chocolate Ganache and sandwiched it with hazelnut filling.

Needless to say the cake turned out delicious, moist and spongy. The beginning was rather rough, ah!..the negligence of reading the recipe and too many things on mind…I did not set the temperature right , and realized only when I saw a burnt top . Thankfully well in time,  I just had to scrape off the top portion .So here is how I made this cake…

Cake batter
1 ¾  all purpose flour
¾  cup cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
1 tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
2 cups sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
1 cup boiling water
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp  egg replacer + 6 tb sp water
Sieve all the dry ingredients.
Slowly start adding the wet ingredients and beat.
The batter is a little runny.
