Servings: 7-8 persons
Preparation time: 15 mins.
Cooking/Baking Time: 40-50 mins.
Mix oil and sugar in a mixer/blender. Add curd and milk to it and blend/mix well again. Keep this aside.
In a large bowl, sieve and add plain flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder. Add above mix to the bowl and start beating all ingredients.
Add cut dry fruits of your choice if you wish to, add vanilla essence and continue beating. This is an important step because if all ingredients are not beaten well together, the cake will not rise well while baking. Once this mix is beaten well and is fluffy, pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees.
Spread some oil on the baking tray and spread the above eggless chocolate cake mix evenly.
Now bake at 180 degree. After around 40 minutes, check if cake is done. You can check by using a needle or fork. It should come out clean. If it does not, then bake for few more minutes till the cake is done.
Once done, let it cool down and take out the cake from the tray (by turning it upside down and tapping gently). Eggless Chocolate Cake is ready to be indulged in.
Suggestion: If you want to save time, you can start pre-heating the oven before you begin to beat all the ingredients.
