Bonne Bouche – Eggless Chocolate Cake

Hello, Blogger Melons!

It has been a while since my last post *shudders*

I know, right! Days have been busy but I promise not to let my followers feel disappointed with my absence. *For those who care*

The last weekend was productive as I managed to bake an eggless chocolate cake that was a delectable bonne bouche… It isn’t like the regular spongy cakes that require 45-min preparation time with an added half an hour to prepare the icing. *surprised, eh?*

  • Preparation Time: 25:00 – 30:00 minutes
  • Baking Time: 5:00 – 6:00 minutes
  • Serves: 5-6

Well! This one wouldn’t necessitate much of your time… I was prepared that it would consume an hour or so but I was surprised when everything was done in less than half an hour. Read on to acknowledge the recipe for an instant eggless chocolate cake…

Eggless Chocolate Cake (Microwave):-

  1. Take a bowl; add yogurt and baking soda in it. Mix well and set it aside
  2. Take another bowl; add all-purpose flour and cocoa powder in it. Mix well and set it aside
  3. Take a microwave safe bowl, add water in it and microwave it for 1:00 minute
  4. Take the warm water out of the microwave; add sugar and oil in it. Mix well till the sugar is dissolved in the water
  5. Add the yogurt-baking soda mixture in the dissolved solution and mix well
  6. Add the flour-cocoa powder mixture in it and mix it well till a smooth batter is formed *avoid the formation of lumps.
  7. Take another microwave safe bowl, add a tea spoon of oil or a table spoon of butter and spread it around the sides of the microwave-safe bowl
  8. Pour the batter into the bowl and let it set for half a minute
  9. Microwave the batter for 5:00 – 6:00 minutes. You need to monitor the baking process because every microwave isn’t the same. *Mine took 5:30 minutes*
  10. Take the bowl out and keep a cold-water soaked towel below the bowl to help it cool faster than it would take, otherwise. Or else you can keep the cake in the refrigerator to let it cool
  11. Let the cake cool down *This one wouldn’t rise much, it would be soft and savouring but not too spongy or cushioned*

Chocolate Icing method:-

  1. Take a microwave safe bowl and add in the 100 grams chocolate along with butter.
  2. Microwave it for 0:30 seconds
  3. Mix it well, the chocolate would be melted; add in milk and mix it well considering the appropriate consistency

Garnishing the Cake:-

Chocolate Cake with Wafer Chisels

  1. Invert the cake over a plate
  2. Pour the icing over the cake and spread it consistently
  3. Garnish it with chocolate wafer chisels or top it with a cherry or gems *your call*

TIPS:-

  1. You can serve the cake slightly hot with ice-cream
  2. Adjust the sugar level according to your taste
  3. This cake is made in a microwave so it wouldn’t rise much, not that microwave baked cakes do not rise but this one, would not.
  4. Butter can be a substitute for oil
  5. The cake must be cool when you invert it on the plate or else it can even break
  6. If you want the cake to be spongy and softer, use sour curd

Enjoy the Bonne Bouche . . . *Mouth-watering*
