EGGLESS CHOCOLATE SPONGE CAKE

Ingredients:-

1/2 tin condensed milk (200gms)
2 3/4 cups plain flour (240gms)
40 gm cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda (soda bicarb)
2 tsp icing sugar
1/2 cup butter melted (60gms)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
100 ml milk
100 ml Coke or Thums Up

  • Sieve flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, cocoa all together 2 to 3 times. Keep aside.
  • Pour condensed milk in a bowl. Add the butter, and beat well till smooth. 
  • Add the flour spoon by spoon, mixing into the condensed milk mixture. In between, add milk as required if the butter begins to get too stiff. [Stir the mixture in one direction only all the while. 
  • This will incorporate more air and make the cake lighter].
  • Once all the flour is used up, beat the batter as above till light (5-7 minutes).
  • Add the coke or Thums Up and mix gently till smooth.
  • Pour into a greased cake tin. Do not smooth with a spoon etc. If the consistency is right this will not be needed.

  • Poke with a skewer and check. Cool a little. Invert on wire rack. Cool completely before doing icing if any. Or
  • serve warm with tea.
