Chocolate Fudge Cake recipe with step by step photos
We have a huge collection of cake recipes on our website. So, apart from Eggless Chocolate Fudge Cake:
To make the Eggless Chocolate Fudge Cake, first grease a 150 mm (6”) diameter baking tin with butter and keep it aside.
Preheat your oven at 180°C while you make the batter. If you do not preheat your oven the cake will not rise well and you will not be able to estimate the duration of baking.
To make the batter of the Chocolate Fudge Cake, first take a small bowl and put the curd into it.
Next, add the baking soda.
Also, add the baking powder.
Mix all these ingredients well and keep it aside. You will notice that the mixture becomes frothy. This mixture is the raising agent for our Eggless Chocolate Fudge Cake. Do not over mix the ingredients as it will weaken the raising power.
Now, take a deep bowl and place a sieve over it.
Put the plain flour into the bowl with sieve.
Also, put the cocoa powder.
Push the flour down with the help of a spoon. Sieving the flour aerates it and makes the cake fluffier.
Now, take a large and wide mouthed bowl and add the butter into it.
Add the powdered sugar to sweeten the cake. We have used powdered sugar because it melts easily.
Also, add the curd mixture.
Add vanilla essence to enhance the flavour of the Eggless Chocolate Fudge Cake.
Add the dry ingredients into the bowl.
Add the chopped walnuts and mix well.
Mix well with the help of a spatula. Do not over mix to prevent the cake from becoming dense.
Pour the batter of the Eggless Chocolate Fudge Cake into the greased baking tin.
Bake at 180 ° C for 40-45 minutes. The Eggless Chocolate Fudge Cake is ready when it leaves the sides of the tin and is spongy to touch. You can also check the doneness using a knife. Insert the cknife into the cake. The Chocolate Fudge Cake is ready if it comes out clean.
Loosen the edges of the cake and tap the mould sharply in an upside down position on a plate. Keep the Eggless Chocolate Fudge Cake aside to cool.
To make the Icing for the Chocolate Fudge Cake, take a bowl and add the icing sugar into it.
Now, add the cocoa powder.
Add not more than 3 to 4 tbsp of water into the bowl.
Mix well with the help of a spoon till no lumps remain and a thick paste is formed. Since the icing hardens quickly, make it only after the Eggless Chocolate Fudge Cake has cooled.
Pour this icing generously over the cooled Eggless Chocolate Fudge Cake.
Garnish with a few walnuts and serve the Eggless Chocolate Fudge Cake immediately.
