Continuing in the series for the Bake-a-thon, next comes the Chocolate Cake. The recipe that I had written down actually said Moist eggless Chocolate Cake. However for the alphabet sake I had to retain just Chocolate Cake. After all it's just that end of the day.
I baked it couple of days back, same time when I was trying hard to make the Corn Cheese Croquettes
. Somehow the boys realized that I was baking a cake, most surely a chocolate one this time. So they were literally behind me every step. Finally without anything I had to just give them as they were so impatient. I had planned for another Ganache. But it was to be just this and a sauce that was already at home.
While I was so happy seeing their reaction, I wished I had more time to click better pictures. And moreover during night, the chocolate looks so dark that I prefer day light. Anyway I can't help with the pictures, with the taste being so amazing.
The cake was really so moist and though it did require a little bit sweetness, it was fine. This makes a great dessert!
