Chocolate Truffle Cake is something we love a lot. My hubby and my daughter just fell in love with this cake. This super-soft, moist, melt in the mouth, eggless chocolate cake with ganache topping makes a wonderful celebration. And guess what? People at home couldn’t believe that this cake was made without eggs.
If you ask me, if I like store bought cake. I would say NO….
It’s been a while, that I had store bought cake. I prefer making cake at home, whenever there is celebration.
This is the first time, I made a layered cake, and it came out more than what I expected. In each and every bite, I was telling myself…great job Puja…you made it..
Don’t believe me.. Then just give it a try…
And tell us how it turned out for you…
Anyways, let me tell you about the basic ingredients I have used for this recipe
All-Purpose Flour – I have used all-purpose flour, but you can also use wheat flour for this recipe. Prefer using good quality of maida to get a good result.
Cocoa Powder – Something very important for this recipe. It is important to use good quality cocoa powder because that is what decides how tasty your cake is.
Baking Soda – Another most important ingredient for this recipe. Always use fresh baking soda. Now the question is, how will you make out, whether the soda is fresh or not.
Add about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of baking soda in a mixture of 1 tablespoon vinegar + 1 tablespoon of water. The solution should fizz and bubble. If the solution does not fizz and bubble, the baking soda is not active and fresh. So avoid using it.
Baking Powder – The reason why both soda and powder might be used, because you might have enough soda to neutralize the acid in a recipe, but not actually enough to lift the batter. In these cases, a little baking powder will give the extra lift needed to make the recipe perfect. You could use the baking powder alone, but then your finished baked treat might taste too acidic.
Curd – Plain curd and baking soda react with one another which gives it the soft, moist texture that we’re looking for.
Oil – Prefer using neutral flavor oil. Usage of oil also helps in making the eggless cake soft and moist.
Chocolate Ganache – Ganache is a mixture of cream and chocolate. The cream is heated up and chocolate is added and whisked till the chocolate melts. For topping on cakes and desserts, the ganache should be a bit liquid, pourable.
Things to be taken care, while making Eggless Chocolate Truffle Cake
Do not over-mix the batter.
Let the cake cool down completely before you remove from the cake tin.
Its better to use big size of the cooker in order to bake without any hassle.
You can decorate the cake, before or after keeping the cake in the fridge.
