Wacky cake recipe – vegan chocolate cake – No egg no butter cake recipes

      What if you want to bake a cake in a hurry?You dont have eggs at home and cant run to the grocery store now.  Are you calorie conscious and dont want to eat a cake because of the butter in it. 

Try this cake. You can have the cake and eat it too!!!

         I had seen this recipe a couple of months ago in chef in you website and several other blogs. I had loved the recipe and wanted to try it immediately, but had somehow forgotten it due to other commitments. Later when Usha had posted it last month, I was reminded of it and tried it on the same day. It is so easy to bake and is also ready in minutes. You can make the batter in the same cake tin itself. The ingredients are readily available too. It does not require butter or eggs or even baking powder.We all loved it a lot. I even stored it in the refrigerator and we had it the next day. It actually tasted even better the next day , as with time, the flavours are beautifully absorbed.

The history of the cake is interesting too. It was made during the world war II days when there was a shortage of butter,milk and eggs. There are some variations too. I would love to try similar recipes in future and will be posting them if they come out well.

        So do try this cake. You are going to love this one and you can even gift it to your friends.

Do give your feedback if you try this one.
