How to make Eggless Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe - Vegan Option
To begin making the easy Chocolate Cake Recipe we will first preheat the oven to 160 C and grease tan 8 inch cake pan with butter and dust it with flour. Get all the ingredients ready to make the cake and keep them aside.
If your recipe asks for 2 eggs, measure 2 tablespoons of flax meal along with 6 tablespoons of water. Stir well and let the mixture rest for about 15 minutes. This process of resting helps the flax meal mixture develop a gelatinous consistency similar to eggs.
In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, beat in the sugar, butter (oil), baking powder and (eggs) flax meal egg replacer and beat until fluffy and combined.
Gradually beat in the cocoa powder, milk (almond milk) and the flours in that order until all the ingredients come together and looks creamy.
Pour the contents of the chocolate cake batter into the greased cake pan and bake in the pre heated oven for 40 minutes or until when a tester when inserted right through comes out clean.
Remove the Vegan/ Eggless Chocolate Cake from the oven and allow it to cool a bit before you can cut it and serve.
Serve the Chocolate cake topped with either chocolate ganache or even seasonal fruits along with whipped cream. You can also serve the cake as it is for a tea time snack.
