Posted in : Baking frenzy, cakes, Dessert on by : indrani Tags: Cake, CHOCOLATE, DESSERT, eggless, VEGETARIAN
I had made this cake on my 14th anniversary.My objective was to give the recipe a healthy touch as well as making it eggless as most of my colleagues don’t touch any eggs or non vegetarian items in this month “Shravan” which is the fifth month of the Hindu year beginning in late July and ending in the third week of August.
I used whole wheat flour instead of regular refined flour.The whole wheat flour being rich in fibers is more heavy and needed to be used in less quantity.In 1 kg normal eggless chocolate cake I use 200 gms of refined flour and 30 gms of cocoa powder but using whole wheat flour I used 100 gms of whole wheat flour and 100 gms of cocoa powder.
You can use any glaze or even eat it without a glaze as it is soft and moist already.I used a white chcolate glaze just for a change.
1.12 to 15 apricots(Dried)
2.100 gm of whole wheat flout
3.1/2 tsp of baking soda.
4.1 tsp of baking powder
