Nescafe Chocolate Cake (Eggless)


It is sincerely one thing to be crowned as a sensational baker, the other for people like me who baked once a while, is baking simple sweet pleasures (Chocolate Lave Cake Microwave & Banana Bread). Simplicity, if you have noticed, is not only my style to cooking, it is also my way to my simple life. Undeniably. I baked, as I have already repeated donkey a times, for getting a hang of it and not definitely for impressing anyone (Chocolate Chilli Cookies & Butter Cocoa Cake). The impressing I will leave it to the rest who badly need attention and to those who claim they are sharing recipes for fun (Chocolate Genoise & Classic Genoise) when in actual fact they are chasing after blogging fame and popularity. Otherwise, why would they literally die in the virtual world? Goodness gracious, wish people are simple in sincerity, then again, social media success potentially does open doors to major success. It will, trust me. So, keep chasing success but make sure you don't burn your ass. For me, let me put it like this. If fame comes my way, I of course will grab it. If it doesn't, life goes on, baking too will still take place at my own whims and fancy, and not because I want to perk up my baking success.  

Having said that, from the baking I have done so far, I have gained much further insights to cake cracking atop. Maybe its the oven temperature, maybe its the opening and closing of oven or other reasons I am not aware of. But no matter how extremely careful you are, I realise that cake does and will crack atop. My chef friend couldn't agree more. This Nescafe Chocolate Cake (Nescafe Ice Cream & Nescafe Glazed Custard Cake) did crack crack atop. Was I disappointed? Neh, whatever for? Its just a cake (Marble Cake & Chocolate Cheesecake) and not a crack on my brain or head. So, I wholeheartedly accepted the crack instead of feeling disappointed (Almond Brownies & Chocolate Rum Tart) I can't impress any of you. Aside to cracking, Nescafe Chocolate Cake, mind you turned out quite a fab. I said fab, and not fantastic okay?  Soft, spongy and attractively appealing, Nescafe Chocolate Cake is an absolute dessert moment treat. For vegetarians and non-vegetarians, please stop with debating that eggless vegetarian cake won't trill your sweet temptation (Mango Kulfi & Wajik/Sweet Glutinous Rice Cake, Mango Stick Rice & Honeydew Sago Dessert). Try this Nescafe Chocolate Cake of mine and you will know what I mean. 

Ingredients
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
2 tsp Nescafe (optional - add more for a stronger coffee taste) 
1 cup yogurt/curd (I used the no frill basic yogurt)
3/4 cup powdered/icing sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup no smell/olive oil

Method
Sift flour, cocoa and Nescafe twice.
Keep aside. 
Whisk and combine yohurt, sugar and vanilla. 
Add baking soda and baking powder, whisk and "don't disturb it" for 2 minutes.
Pour in oil, simultaneously fold the sifted ingredients.
Gently please while ensuring there's no lumps. 
Tip into a greased baking pan.
Bake at 175C for about an hour or until cake is cooked.
Remove, cool down and "cut-me-up".
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Your support is my pride. Thank you everyone.

  4. Nava ,I agree with u on the bullet train issue :)
    Some people just look for cons now thats their problem not ours. I remember baking a marble cake and the crack really marred the whole look of it but here it looks like a zigzag pattern only.
