Eggless Chocolate Cake

This Eggless Chocolate Cake is the best eggless cake I have ever tried. You will find recipes using cud or yogurt or condensed milk, but this is way easier, without any of these ingredients. It is still rich and decadent like an ideal chocolate cake should be.

The ingredients that make this cake super moist and also gives it the best texture is adding buttermilk and baking soda. Both these ingredients, when together, gives any cake the best possible moistness and texture. I have also added instant coffee granules which only add to chocolate flavour making it more decadent.

I have used the simplest form of chocolate glaze for the cake. The dark chocolate ganache can be made using fresh cream or whipping cream, resulting into a thick rich glaze every single time.

So now that we know what all makes this awesome it’s time to see the recipe!
