Chocolate & Walnut Yogurt Cake with Black Sugar

One of my recent find out is Black sugar, i didnt picked it accidently as i love to experiment with different ingredients to add in our dishes. I recently crossed black sugar in M&S during my recent visit, initially i was bit skeptical though i seriously want to give a try with this new ingredient. So i picked it immediately along with black treacle syrup to give a try. Back home, i tried making this simple yogurt cake with both black sugar and black treacle syrup. Black sugar can look quite similar to brown sugar,however black sugar is more darker almost black.Personally i felt that this black sugar is almost like our Indian jaggery but more dark in colour.

However both black sugar and black treacle syrup turned the cake super catchy in colour with beautiful flavor. I loved these both ingredients and especially this cake smells too good, if you get a chance to get black sugar, dont forget to give a try. Heard that even Asian stores sells this sugar as they are quite famous in Japan and Taiwan. If you dont get black sugar, just stick with dark brown sugar to give a try to this cake. Am running holiday bakes as this week's theme for this week's blogging marathon and hence am posting this cake.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#59.Sending to Kid's delight - Party food hosted by Priya, event by Srivalli.

The black sugar is certainly intriguing. I will check this out during my next visit to store. The caramel colour of the cake is stunning and the black sugar has certainly done the job right! Brown sugar might not provide the same colour though the dark jaggery could. If I dont find that, will try it with jaggery instead. Loved the recipe and I should try an eggless version soon. Baking cakes I am very lazy as I dont enjoy eating it much either but I guess blog is the motivation and certainly friends like you who post amazing stuff.
