Eggless Chocolate cake

            This is the first cake I baked at home for my Parent’s 25th Wedding anniversary. Since we are vegetarians, we don’t use eggs and thought of making this egg-less cake. To my surprise, it came out very well. This is the first cake tasted by my grandparents in their life time.

  • Now grease the cake pan (Rice pan that comes with cooker will do good) with ghee.
  • Meanwhile place another rice pan with 1/4 cup water in the cooker and switch on the stove. They will be pre- heated.
  • In the mixture add lemon juice. This will react with  baking soda and helps in raising the flour.
  • Immediately place the pan on the top of the first pan and close the lid.
  • It should be steam cooked so don’t use the weight.

  • Bake on medium heat for 5 minutes. Then bake it in low heat for 30-35 minutes.
  • Once you have done, open the cooker and insert the toothpick at the center to check whether the cake has been baked well.
  •  Now allow it to cool for ten minutes and turn it upside down on a plate.
  • Your cake is ready and you can cut into pieces and serve.
  • It will be yummy.
