Egg-less Chocolate Cake 2 Or Whole Wheat Egg-less Chocolate Cake

The Egg-less Chocolate Cake! This is how tall it was!!
Amazed at this gargantuan cake! Well I was too and it has a story behind it…

My friend Vidya came around the other day on her way out for her evening walk and left behind a container for me to microwave as hers was for repairs. She said it was a cake and to just microwave it for 10 minutes. She had also left behind a sachet of Eno’s fruit salt to be used if needed. I used it!!

Since all my micro containers were for a wash I took out the microwave rice cooker that I rarely use and just store my extra dish cloth in it and used it. Boy was I glad I did it, the cake was huge anything else and I would have spent the evening moping the oven floor and cursing her (especially since she was on her way to a party by then)!!

Of course she shared the recipe with me!! We do that regularly. What more you use regular gehu ka atta to make it.

2 cups whole wheat flour (yes whole wheat /Gehu ka atta)
1 ½ cup sugar
½ tsp soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tblspn cocoa
1 tblspn drinking chocolate
½ tsp instant coffee (my addition)
½ tsp vanilla essence
2 tblspn butter (I used salted butter)
½ cup curd
½ + 1/3 cup milk (I used 1 cup)
2.5 grms Eno’s salt

1.       Melt the butter totally add the curds and milk. Mix well and keep aside.
2.       Mix all the dry ingredients except the Eno’s salt in a big bowl.
3.       Add the butter mixture. Mix well. It is okay if the mixture is soft dough consistency the sugar will melt. Keep aside for 4 hours.
4.       Grease a huge container. Mix the Eno’s salt in the batter and transfer to the container.
5.       Microwave for 10 minutes or till the knife inserted comes out clean.
