Decadent Eggless Chocolate Cake

For the past few months I've been wanting to bake an eggless cake. I do not usually bake any eggless/vegetarian cakes, but I thought its about time that tried making some. 

The other day when I was talking to a friend of mine, who was a vegetarian, she told me that she makes vegetarian chocolate cake with coca-cola. Yes, you read that right! Coca-cola! Immediately, I was interested in trying a similar recipe, and I got to work, googling for chocolate cake recipe with coke. After going through various sites, I found the recipe here favourable.

Start by sifting together he flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, soda bicarbonate and baking powder.

Beat the butter and sweetened condensed milk. Beat till there is no lumps of butter. Add in the vanilla extract and mix well.

Stir in the sifted dry ingredients. 

Lastly, quickly pour in the coke and combine well. 

Pour into a lined tin and bake for 1 hour.

The final product. Yummy chocolatey goodness!

100 g butter, at room temperature
1 can sweetened condensed milk (500g)
225 g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda bicarbonate
250 ml coca- cola
1 tsp vanilla extract

1) Preheat oven at 150 degree Celsius.
2) Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda bicarbonate. Keep aside.
2) Beat butter and sweetened condensed milk till there is no lumps of butter.
3) Stir in the vanilla extract.
4) Stir in the sifted dry ingredients mix well.
5) Pour in the coke and combine well.
6) Pour in a lined cake tin and bake for 1 hour.

1) I used self raising flour since I didn't have plain flour, which the original recipe called for. If you are using plain flour, use 2 tbsp baking powder and 1 tsp soda bicarbonate.
2) The top of the cake may appear a little hard once it is out of the oven. Don't worry, just let the cake cool completely for 1-2 hours and top will soften.
