How to make Eggless Chocolate cake using curds

  1. To make the batter for your Eggless Chocolate cake using curds , sieve the plain flour and cocoa powder together to get rid of impurities or lumps.This is also done to make the flour lighter for a fluffier product. Keep aside.
  2. Combine the curds and soda bi-carb in a bowl and keep aside. This mixture becomes frothy in a few seconds and is the only raising agent we are going to add. Mix it gently using a whisk. The mixture should not be lumpy.
  3. In another bowl, combine the butter and sugar to make a thick paste. Be very careful when you are measuring the ingredients. Too much flour or sugar can alter the texture of your cake.
  4. Add ¼ cup of hot water and whisk well till the sugar dissolves.
  5. Add the curd mixture to the butter- sugar mixture and mix well with the help of a spatula.
  6. Add the half of the plain flour-cocoa mixture to the butter sugar mixture. Mix well.
  7. Now add the other half of the flour-cocoa mixture and mix well until no lumps remain. The batter should look smooth and velvety.
  8. Take a 175 mm. (7”) diameter bowl grease it with any kind of fat.
  9. Dust it with some flour and discard the excess flour. Greasing and dusting is done to prevent the Chocolate cake from getting stuck to the baking tin and make the process of unmolding easier.
  10. Now, put the Eggless Chocolate cake using curds batter into this baking tin. Spread evenly with a spatula to get a smooth surface.
  11. Pre-heat your oven for  10- 15 minutes at 180°C(356°F).
  12. Bake at 180°C for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted into the cake comes out clean. Do not poke the knife at the centre of the Eggless Chocolate cake using curds when you are checking. It might deflate the cake and make it dense.
  13. Remove the Chocolate cake from the oven and keep aside to cool. Always wear gloves when you are removing something from the oven as the product you have baked might be too hot to touch.
  14. Use a knife to detach the sides of the cake from the tin.
  15. Demold the cake by placing the cake tin  upside down on a flat plate.Remove the tin and use as required.You can cut this Eggless Chocolate cake using curds into pieces & enjoy it with your friends over a cup of tea. If baked properly, this cake can also be frosted with whipped cream, butter cream frosting, chocolate ganache, etc.

I tried the recipe again. It was hard and crusty after 45 minutes of baking when the recipe calls for 60 minutes of baking. There is something seriously wrong with this recipe. Please correct it. I am quite a fan of Tarla Dalal recipes but there is something off about this one.

I tried the rectified recipe above. The cake did not turn out well. It was overly moist and the butter was floating all around. I think quantity of melted butter used should be reduced to 3/4th or 2/3rd cup. Please confirm. Thank you.

   Hi Divya, We have used 1 cup butter only. This is a tried and tested recipe from our kitchen and it really works out. Mix together all the ingredients well with a spatula so the butter does not float.
