eggless chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache

This is the BEST eggless chocolate cake EVER!!!

And the family agrees.

This year when I asked both Raj and Gee if I should bake them a cake, both of them just shooed away the thought and asked for different things. I made those other things, but it did not feel like a birthday if I did not bake a cake. So here's the best Birthday cake I ever made.

Recently, my baking has been a little bit of a failure - super healthy cakes that tasted not so delightful, a tray of freshly baked brownies that saw the floor before they saw the mouth and a cake that tasted like groundnut more than vanilla thanks to the groundnut oil I used. So this cake had to be a success. It was, after all, the birthday of the two people who make up my life.

This cake is everything you ever imagined a Chocolate Cake should be. It is eggless, yet moist. It is rich, dark and deeply chocolatey. Top it with the dark chocolate ganache and the cake becomes sinful and indulgent. Basically, this cake kicks the ass of any other birthday cake.

To make this Eggless Chocolate Cake

Firstly, we need to bake 2 layers of cake. I do not use box mixes, so this cake is made from scratch.
The cake is made from simple easily available ingredients. A few things that make this cake rich and moist:

Oil instead of butter. We want a moist and dense cake instead of a light and crumbly cake. And my pro tip, use a flavorless oil, unless you like the flavor of oil. Last time I used groundnut oil and it had an aftertaste that I could not get rid off.

Condensed milk. This is my favorite egg replacer in all eggless cakes. The condensed milk manages to hold the cake together like nothing else does. I always use sweetened condensed milk, so I tend to use less sugar instead.

Yogurt. Again, this makes it moist while adding a creaminess to the cake. You will never taste the sourness of the yogurt, but it does add another dimension to the flavor.

Coffee. Coffee has time and again been used in dark chocolate cakes, and with good reason. Coffee brings out the flavor of the chocolate and makes the cake taste more chocolatey. It enhances the darkness of the cake too, in flavor and color, if you know what I mean.

I baked the cake at night and frosted them the next day morning. The cakes need to completely cool before you frost them, else the ganache will melt. While all my cakes dome in the center, this one did not really. I mean it did, but ever so slightly. So while frosting the cakes, I sliced the top off to level them.

eggless chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache


The cake tasted AH-MAZING with the chocolate ganache, so I really wish you make it too.

The ganache is made from only 3 ingredients, so be nice to me and yourself, and make it. Use the best quality dark chocolate bar, your favorite one. I used a regular sweetened dark chocolate bar that I eat and not cooking chocolate. I used Amul's Peru single origin dark chocolate bar and it tasted so good. Cut the chocolate into small pieces so it melts quickly. Heat the cream and pour it into the chocolate and mix it until the chocolate melts and has no lumps. If the cream isn't hot enough, the chocolate will not melt. In that case, gently melt the chocolate over a double boiler.

The chocolate I used already had sugar in it, so I added very little powdered sugar later. If you are using unsweetened or semi sweetened chocolate, add in more sugar (as desired). At this point the chocolate is molten, you can pour this over the cake if you plan to serve the cake as a single layer cake. If you want to make a two-layer cake like me, then cool the ganache slightly in the fridge so it hardens slightly and reaches a spreadable consistency. 15 mins were more than enough for me. This time may differ depending on the type of chocolate used. I suggest peeping into the refrigerator every 10 minutes. If it hardens up a lot, gently reheat it over the double boiler for a few seconds and add some milk and whisk it into submission.

I did not pipe the ganache into fancy shapes but just used the back of a spoon to create the pattern on the top of the cake. You can make any pattern you like.

The cake tastes best when slightly warmed up. Microwave any leftover slices for 10-20 seconds and enjoy an even more sinful dessert.

Milk Rusk Recipe | Sweet Bread Rusk Recipe [Video]


Milk Rusk is a twice baked sweet baked. Milk Rusk is sweet and tastes best with a hot cup of tea. Rusk is a popular tea-time snack in India.

In a hurry? Jump to Video or Jump to Recipe


How do you like your chai/tea? I like mine slightly strong with little milk and 1 tsp of organic jaggery powder, that brown chocolatey kind, with a rusk to dunk into it.

I LOVE dunking biscuits and rusks in my tea. I sometimes dunk cakes and bread too, but that's a story for another day. I've been dunking rusks for years and loved how the crispy hard rusk just melts once dunked. My snack box usually has a packet of rusk from the local bakery, coz those are the BEST!


So one Saturday, when I was relatively free, I decided to bake some myself. So there are sweet rusks and savory rusks. I am not sure if the savory one is native to only Bangalore and surrounding areas because I had never seen one before. But that's my least favorite one, so totally ignoring the existence of that one. There are 2 types of sweet rusks, the bread rusk and the cake rusk. The cake rusk is like a biscotti, where one bakes a cake first and then slices it and bakes again until it dries up and becomes a crisp sweet cake rusk. That's a recipe I still need to try. This time I tried the second recipe, which is of bread rusk. 

To make the bread rusk, one needs to bake a sweet bread first and then slice it and bake it again until it dries up to give the crispy hard rusk that we all enjoy.


About the Sweet Bread
  • Bread rusk takes a considerably longer time to make because it includes the rise time of the bread. However, this is free time as you don't need to monitor it, just leave it in a warm place to rise.
  • Sweet bread takes longer than regular bread to rise. The added sugar slows down the process, so you will have to wait longer. It took me around 4 hours to get a good rise out of the bread, it may take longer if you live in a cooler area. 

Once the bread is ready, it doesn't take very long to make the rusks if you have a large oven and a sheet pan. I had to make mine in batches, so it took me some time to bake them all.

But the wait was worth it! The satisfaction of dunking a home baked rusk exceeded the boredom of the waiting period. Happy Rusk Baking to you!!

Chhole Pulao | Chickpea Pilaf [Video]

Chhole Pulao - a combination of two of my favorite dishes - chhole and pulao, now encompassed into one dish! Growing up, this was our Sunday lunch (mostly). My mom made her famous Pulao and Chhole on Sundays and on special occasions. It was a family favorite. The idea of combining both and making one dish originated from Instagram. A long time ago, one of my favorite Instagrammers, thegutlessfoodie posted her meal of a Chhole Pulao, albeit without chickpeas in there. I loved the idea and took on to making this dish. It has been a success. 

This Chhole Pulao simply put, is made by cooking a dry version of our regular Chhole or chickpea curry and mixing in cooked Basmati rice. It is an easy to make meal and it can be prepped well in advance. You can cook the chickpeas a few days ago and store them in the fridge, for an even easier approach, just buy canned chickpeas. The Basmati rice also can be cooked in advance and stored in the fridge. You can also make it with leftover rice, any variety you have. I personally like cooking the masala fresh, because it really doesn't take much time, but you can also make this in advance and on the day of the meal, just combine the three.

For the past two weeks, I have been stressed with very little time at my hands to cook a meal. It is at times like this, that recipes like Chhole Pulao come very handy. As far as I prep everything on the weekend, the weekdays seem easier.

Since the Chhole Pulao is a carb-heavy dish, so it ends up satiating you. I call it comfort food. Chhole Pulao is a plant-based meal that fits well into the Vegan lifestyle. It can be served as a main dish at festivities and celebrations.

Schezwan Paratha Recipe | Szechuan Paratha Recipe [Video]


Schezwan Paratha is a Chinese inspired stuffed Indian wholewheat flatbread. The paratha is stuffed with a spicy cabbage, capsicum and onion stuffing.

szechuan paratha



When normal people think Paratha, schezwan paratha doesn't even pop up in the head. But for a foodie, anything is possible and this schezwan paratha possibly popped in some Indo-Chinese food-obsessed North Indian foodie. Just to let you know, this is not my idea. Na-ah. But the recipe is definitely my own.

Six years ago, I watched a Gujarati cooking show that showed the making of a schezwan paratha. I didn't understand the language, but as they say, food has a language of its own. And that's what happened, I got the gist of the dish while I didn't understand a word of the instructions. And after a few attempts, this paratha was here to stay.

Schezwan Paratha is a perfect fusion of two styles of cuisine. The Chinese inspired vegetable mix is stuffed inside a whole wheat dough, rolled and pan-fried until crisp. The paratha satisfies several cravings - craving for Chinese food, craving for comforting Parathas, the craving for spice and of course, the basic craving for some delicious and new food.

szechuan paratha


Any stuffed paratha has 2 parts, the stuffing, and the coating. The coating, in this case, is a regular dough made of wholewheat flour, a pinch of salt and water. The dough is kneaded the same way one would for chapati or other parathas. If you want you can add some maida or all purpose dough as well while kneading the dough. The soft dough is stuffed with a spicy mixed vegetable stuffing. The stuffing, in this case, is made with julienned vegetables such as onions, capsicum, and cabbage. You can also add carrots. The vegetables are cooked down with a spicy homemade garlic-chilli sauce that is ready in 15 minutes.

Paratha is generally as breakfast item as it is filling and it gives you energy to cruise through the day. But parathas are also a great dinner option. Pair paratha up with some homemade yogurt (Dahi) and pickle and you are all set to lull yourself to a food coma.

Patoli Recipe | Sihi Kadabu Recipe | Goan Patoleo Recipe [Video]


Patoleo or Patoli is a traditional Konkani sweet made for Nag Panchami or Ganesh Chaturthi. Patholi are jaggery-coconut stuffed rice rolls that are steamed in fresh Turmeric leaves. This dessert is also made in Udupi-Mangalore as Sihi Kadabu.

Patoli Recipe, Sihi Kadabu Recipe, Goan Patoleo Recipe

Patoli or Patoleo or Sihi Kadabu, a sweet with many names and just as many different recipes. Last year when I saw fresh turmeric leaves in the market, I felt the desire to make this sweet. After all, Gee loves it and so does Raj. Me? Not as much a fan of it. but I will still eat it because it is sweet and my sweet tooth can rarely pass an opportunity to be indulged. 

And then began the quest to find the perfect recipe - my mom's recipe. It is times like this that I feel the huge gap my mom's absence has left me with. She never wrote down her recipes or even remembered it enough to tell us. She believed we need to watch and learn when she cooked something. And most often, we did not, because I think we believed she will always be around to help us out when we needed it. So there I was with these fresh seasonal leaves and no recipe.

Patoli Recipe, Sihi Kadabu Recipe, Goan Patoleo Recipe


The first thing I did was look up recipes online, only to find so many variations, that I ended up confused. Next, I messaged by Goan friends, hoping to find some commonality there. Alas, there too each one had their own version. I called up my aunt to get her recipe, wishing she had my mother's recipe, but it wasn't it. I could make any one of the 100 recipes that I find online, but just 1 will taste close to what she made it. And I was on the lookout for that recipe. I'm not sure this is exactly the one, but it sure came close. I had photos from the last time she made them for us and I just found them the other day, so when I saw those turmeric leaves again in the market, it was go time. 

It is a simple recipe I'm sharing today, 7 ingredients including the fresh turmeric leaves. And that sounds just like amma. She never over-complicated her cooking. It was the simplest one with the least ingredients but tasted delicious, I guess it was the magic in her hands. Last year, I cooked the filling, this year the pics showed me, my mom, just mixed it and there was no cooking involved. Last year I soaked raw rice, then ground it to make the dough, this year I just used rice flour, as one of the pics seem like that's what she did. This is the only step I don't have photos of. The rest is similar to all the recipes. And guess what, this year, the patoli came damn close to the real deal. And we've all wolfed down so many, that we've lost count. I only hope I've done justice to her recipe.
