Eggless Easy Chocolate Cake

During this weekend i was supposed to bake a chocolate cake for one of my friend's birthday who doesnt eat eggs at all, if u asked me how to bake cakes without eggs before two years, i would have definitely say i dont know,but today i can cook or bake anything as egg free or vegan, i learned so many beautiful things through this blogsphere... Am very proud to say that if i dont have eggs at home, i can prepare a beautiful cake using many egg subsitutes like tofu,egg replacer,baking soda with vinegar or else with flax seed meal, i prepared this dark chocolate cake for my friend as egg free cake using flax seed meal, this super moist and spongy cake was a  big hit and we had a super duper birthday party this weekend..

Chocolate Cake

2cups All purpose flour
1cup Sugar
200grms Chocolate bar (broken as pieces)
1cup Low fat cream or yogurt
1/2cup Butter (room temperature)
1tsp Baking soda
1tsp Baking powder
2tbsp Flax seed meal
6tbsp Hot water
Confectioner's sugar (for dusting)

Preheat the oven to 350F..Beat the butter,sugar until they turns smooth,meanwhile sieve the flour with baking soda and baking powder and keep aside..mix the flax seed meal to the hot water as thick paste and keep aside...Now add the low fat cream to the smooth butter-sugar mixture and beat for a while, melt the chocolate pieces in microwave oven with a tablespoon of water..now add the flax seed paste,melted chocolate, whisk everything well until they get well mixed..

Gradually add the sieved flour, give a stir with a spatula, dont whisk..Pour this cake batter in a greased round mould,bake for 20-25minutes in middle rack until the skewers inserted comes out clean..Dust the cake while serving..
