Rich Chocolate Cake and Eggless too!


Hi all,
you all already know that I made chocolate cake on a very special occasion! You also know that I am not good at baking cakes and biscuits..:-( still I tried..there is a saying that "Practice makes perfect!" and it actually came out good...I was happy with the results, my family loved it..that's what mattered to me the most..
Recipe Sources:-Asda Magazine

You will need:-
Serves 10
  • 425 g Organic Dark Chocolate(70% cocoa solids)
  • 225 g unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp Instant Coffee
  • 100 g self-raising flour
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 25 g cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp bicarb of soda
  • 375 g  caster sugar
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 60 g whole Egg Replacer(recipe said 3 eggs)
  • 300 ml double cream
  • 150 ml water
  • Grated or Shaved chocolate(I used white chocolate)
Method:-

Break  200g chocolate into a bowl with the butter, coffee and 125ml water.  Stand over a pan of simmering water for 3 minutes.  Remove from the heat, leaving the bowl on the pan.  Stir untill smooth, then leave to cool.
Stir together the flours, egg replacer, cocoa and bicarb, then add 350 g sugar.  Stir into the chocolate mixture with the milk and 150 ml water untill evenly mixed(don't overbeat).  Turn into the tin and bake for 1 hour 20 minutes or untill the top springs back when pressed.  Leave in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn out on to a wire rack.  Break the remaining chocolate into a bowl.  Heat the craem and remaining sugar untill simmering, then pour on to the chocolate.  Stir untill smooth.  Leave untill cool but spreadable.  Spread the mixture over the top and sides.  Decorate with grated chocolate.   Enjoy!!

The greatest good you can do for another, is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
