After being successful with my Egg-less Sponge cake recipe, i wanted to try an egg-less chocolate cake. I always know that Wilton has wonderful recipes and also i got a recipe from America's test kitchen cookbook. But, both of them had eggs. I made up this recipe by using both the recipes and using some egg replacers. The cake came out fluffy and tasty.
I already gave some egg-substitute in my previous post here. I got few more of these replacers from a vegan cookbook.

1 egg = 1/4 cup oil
1 egg = 1 tbsp vinegar
1 egg = 1 tbsp ground flax seeds + 3 tbsp water (Beat until gelatinous) (Not good for cakes; Best in muffins)
1 egg = 1/4 cup pureed fruit (apple or banana)
1 egg = 1/4 cup soy yogurt
1 egg = 1/4 cup blended silken tofu

I used oil and vinegar for my recipe.

  • All purpose flour - 1 3/4 cups
  • Dark chocolate bar - 1 (3.52 oz, about 100gms) (I used Hershey's)
  • Butter - 2 tbsp
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Baking powder -1/2 tsp
  • Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
  • Vanilla - 1/2 tbsp
  • Oil - 1/3 cup
  • Vinegar - 1 tbsp
  • Milk - 1/4 cup
  • Water - 3/4 cup
How to make it:

Spray and dust a non-stick baking pan. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Melt butter and chocolate in microwave for a minute. Mix flour, baking powder and baking soda. In a bowl, whisk oil and water together. Add milk, vanilla, vinegar and sugar and mix well. Fold in the flour. Add the melted chocolate and mix thoroughly. Pour into a baking pan and bake for 35-40 minutes.
I decorated this car cake for my son's Birthday. He is a fan of NASCAR - #24 Jeff Gordon. The cake here is the above recipe with Butter cream frosting.
