Tips to make perfect eggless chocolate sponge

  1. Make sure to seive the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda. It makes the cake lighter. 
  2. The water can be adjusted in the batter. It depends upon the quality of flour used.  
  3. Make sure to use the cut and fold method, while you mix the batter.
  4. Pre-heat the oven at the required temperature, or else the cake will not rise while it is baking. 
  5. Once the Eggless chocolate sponge is baked, cool it completely and then cut them into wedges and then serve 

Batter for chocolate cake

  1. To make batter for eggless chocolate cake with condensed milk, assemble all the ingredients and keep the oven to pre-heat at 180ºC (360ºF).
  2. Next to mix the dry ingredients, place the sieve over a deep bowl.
  3. Add plain flour.
  4. Add cocoa powder. Using a good quality dark cocoa powder is very important to get maximum flavours in your eggless chocolate cake
  5. Add baking powder
  6. Add baking soda. Both baking powder and baking soda are leavening agents that help in making the chocolate cake fluffy and spongy. Check the use by date or else your chocolate cake will not rise
  7. Sift together and keep the dry ingredients aside. Sifting the dry ingredients helps in removing any lumps and impurities from the flour before it incorporates into the batter. It also helps in mixing all the ingredients evenly and introduces air to the cake batter
  8. For mixing together the wet ingredients in another bowl, add condensed milk. In this eggless chocolate cake recipe, we have used condensed milk as an egg replacement that will help in keeping the cake soft and moist. There is no need to add any extra sugar as condensed milk is sweet enough for sweetening the entire cake
  9. Add melted butter. You can melt the butter in a microwave or on stovetop. Just heat the butter until it is just melted and bring down to room temperature before adding. If you are planning to store this eggless chocolate cake then typically, use oil instead of butter as butter solidifies after a day or so and the cake turns solid
  10. Add vanilla essence. Instead of vanilla essence, you can use vanilla powder or scrape a fresh vanilla pod. Any other essence of your choice like coffee powder, cardamom powder can also be used for flavouring
  11. Also, add 6 tbsp of water. You may require more or less water depending on the quality of flour
  12. Beat well using a whisk
  13. Add the sieved flour mixture
  14. Mix gently with the help of a spatula. While combining dry and wet ingredients, ensure you do not over-mix. By over-mixing, you will knock out all the air and end up with a dense chocolate cake
  15. The batter should be of dropping consistency

   Hi, you can add dessicated cooconut around 1/4 cup. But try adding in a vanilla sponge cake, rather adding in a chocolate.
