Eggless Sweet Potato Chocolate Cake

Chocolates, i cant give them up for any reason, if i feel down or happy immediately i'll bake something either with chocolate or else eat dark chocolate to keep myself comfort. Am starting an another week of blogging marthon with chocolates as theme. So the next three days is going to be desserts or bakes with chocolates. For today's post am posting a delicious,fudgy like cake with sweet potato and chocolate.Mashed potatoes are good replacement of eggs in cakes, obviously if am making eggless cakes i'll replace it either with applesauce or else with cooked mashed potatoes. But trust me, cooked mashed sweet potatoes are even more interesting to replace eggs in cakes.

This simple chocolate cake came out extremely fudgy, i served this cake topped with a simply chocolate ganache, trust me this cake is seriously a fabulous feast to a chocoholic person like me.If you are planning to make a simple chocolate cake, give a try to this sweet potato chocolate cake.


1+1/2cups All purpose flour
2tbsp Corn flour
1tsp Baking powder
1/2tsp Baking soda
1/2cup Cocoa powder
1/4tsp Salt

Wet ingredients:
1/2cup Mashed sweet potato
1tsp Vanill extract
3/4cup Sugar
1/2cup Oil
1/2cup Yogurt

Preheat the oven to 350F, grease a round pan, keep aside.

Combine the dry ingredients together, sieve twice and keep aside.

Mix well the wet ingredients together in a bowl.

Make a well in the centre of the dry ingtedients, gradually add in the wet ingredients, mix gently with a spatula.

Pour this batter to a already prepared baking tray and bake for 25-30minutes.

Allow to cool in a wire rack.

You can top the cake with a simple ganache or else simply dust the cake with confectioner's sugar.
