Eggless Cauldron Cakes

If you are an ardent fan of Harry potter books,you would have surely heard lot about this word cauldron. But i have never seen cauldron as cakes until Gayathri send us this recipe suggested by Archana for this month's Baking Eggless Challenge.Seriously when i saw this cake, i really want to make some soon as possible just to see how my kids will react to this beautiful very attractive cake. Finally i tried them this week, unfortunately i had hard time with the chocolate handles as they were seriously very fragile and i couldnt able to get them prefectly.Else everything came out extremely prefect and i filled my cauldron cake with mascarpone chesse filling.

My kids just enjoyed having this beautiful cakes even i served them with broken chocolate handles,i'll be making again soon for my son's birthday. Yep this cake is pretty easy to make apart from the chocolate handles. May be with more concentration and patience,i think i'll be able to get those chocolate handles prefectly next time,fingers crossed.Do check ChampaSrivalliSumana Deepak,Veena,Jayasri and Preeti Deo wat they baked for the last day of bake-a-thon.


2cups All purpose flour
1/4cup Unsweetened Dutch process cocao powder
1cup Sugar
1cup Yogurt
1tsp Baking powder
1/4tsp Baking soda
1/2cup Butter (room temperature)
1tbsp Cornstarch
1tsp Vanilla essence
1/4tsp Salt

Line the muffin mouls with paper liners.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Sift the flour,cocao powder,corn starch,salt,baking soda and baking powder together.

In an another bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until they turn smooth, add the yogurt,vanill essence and beat for few minutes.

Fold in the flour mixture and mix gently with a spatula.

Pour enough batter to the lined baking mould and bale for 15-20minutes and let them cool completely.

Mascarpone Cheese Filling:

1/2cup Mascarpone cheese
1/4cup Heavy cream
1/2cup Confectioners sugar

Beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.

In an another bowl,beat the mascarpone cheese and confectioners sugar until everything get well mixed.

Gently fold the cream to the cheese mixture and mix well. Keep in fridge for atleast an hour before starting the filling.

Chocolate handles:
1/2cup Chocolate chips

Melt together the chocolate chips with few drops of water in microwave oven for a minute, whisk well and transfer it to a pastry bag.

Pipe it over a baking sheet as handles and keep aside until its hardens.

Chocolate Glaze:
1/2cup Chocolate chips
2tbsp Butter

Melt the chocolate with butter in microwave oven for a minutes, whisk well and keep aside for 5minutes,transfer it to a piping bag.

Assembling the cake:
With a cupcake corer or a sharp knife, cut out a cavity in the bottom of the cupcake,fill it with the already prepared mascarpone cheese filling.

Original recipe went for dipping the top of the cupcake into the chocolate glaze,i just skipped that part.

Now pipe the chocolate glaze around the edge of the cupcakes, place the already cooled chocolate handles on the top of the cupcakes.

Enjoy.
