Eggless Double Chocolate Kit Kat Cake

Eggless Chocolate cake

Who wouldn't love chocolate cake.. I know there are peeps who don't like chocolate at all, but I am talking about spate of mass.:D

I prepare this cake for my brother's birthday. This was first time since I started cooking I was baking a cake for my brother and parents, was little apprehensive of the results.,but to my surprise not only the cake came perfect but the way I planned to decorate it, also turned out super awesome... It's was my eureka moment when I told my brother that we got the cake from a store and he agreed to it...<3 when we revealed the cake is homemade he couldn't just believe me..:)

So this is super hit cake I made filled and topped with chocolate ganache ( very easy process for chocolate ganache). Decorated with kit kat bars and gems ( you can use M&Ms too). This is gonna be your kid's favourite cake once then see it.

As it's an eggless cake, I had no complains with its texture, sweetness or taste. Was just a perfect chocolate cake.

 For cake
- 1 cup plain flour/maida
- 1/4 cup coco powder
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1/4 cup icing sugar
- 1/4 cup oil ( I used sunflower oil)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tsp Vanilla essence
- 1/2 tsp instant coffee powder

1. Take a bowl add oil and icing sugar and mix them really well to form a smooth mixture.
2. To this add condensed milk and mix well wit the help of a whisk.http://thenovicegardener.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/fiesta-friday-badge-button-i-party.jpg&#8221
3. In a separate bowl take a colander and sieve together flour, coco,baking powder, baking soda and coffee.
4. Sieve this flour mix at least twice ( as this is an eggless preparation, this will aerate the flour and help rise the cake for perfect texture)
5. Add half of the milk and half of the flour mix to oil mix and beat well.
6. Add rest of the milk and flour mix and mix well. At this point do not over beat the mixture, just mix all the ingredients well.
7. Take an 8 inch baking pan, grease from all the sides and sprinkle some flour all over.
8. Pour the cake batter in greased pan and give it nice tap.
9. Bake the cake in a ore heated oven at 180 degrees for 35 minutes or till a tooth pick comes clean.
10. Once done, let the cake cool and demolish the cake.
 Your chocolate sponge cake is ready...:)
