What is Eggless Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake?

Eggless Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake is a moist, absolutely delicious and very chocolaty cake made using whole wheat flour and without the use of eggs (as the name suggests :D). The texture of the cake is so beautiful that you might have a tough time convincing people that it is a whole wheat cake).
The eggless whole wheat chocolate cake is a perfect tea time cake and a great base cake. You can deck it up with your choice of frosting. I have frosted it with chocolate ganache.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Eggless Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake

As the title suggests it is a whole wheat cake. No all purpose flour has been used. For the chocolate flavour, cocoa powder has been used. Cold water and melted butter have been used. I have prepared a simple and quick and my favourite frosting to dress up the cake i.e. chocolate ganache.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
