Eggless Condensed Milk Chocolate Cake

Photobucket

Birthdays are meant to be celebrated with cakes is what I know since the time I was born. But it wouldn't have been so for our grandparents. They wouldn't have even known what a cake was for the first 25 years of their life!!

My man's Grandpa turned 82 yesterday and I wanted to celebrate his birthday with a cake :) I guess this would have been his first experience of someone baking a cake for him at home with love :) and that too he felt it really special when his grand son's wife baked it for him :) He enjoyed the cake a lot and so did I baking it for him :)

Happy birthday Thathaiyah!! :)

Method:

Sieve flour, cocoa, baking powder and soda together into the mixing bowl.

Add melted butter, condensed milk and water to it. Beat using an electric beater until well mixed. The batter would be in pouring consistency.

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease the cake tin with butter and dust with flour.

Fill the pan upto 3/4th and bake it for 40-50 mins at 180°C.

Check if cooked by inserting a tooth pick. The cake is done if the toothpick comes out clean.

Allow it to cool on a wire rack for a while.

Apply cream of your choice and enjoy the cake.

Chocolate Ganache topping:

Chop dark chocolate into small chunks and chop the butter as well. Collect them in a glass bowl. Place it over a pan of water and melt gradually. Keep stirring it until it is completely melted and comes to pouring consistency.

Pour on top of the cake and spread using a spatula on top and around the cake.

Decorate with cut strawberries and chocolates of your choice :)
