Eggless Chocolate cake

It has been a week since I baked anything, because I don't have butter in my fridge. Today I had been to nearest Nilgiris store and bought 4 blocks of butter. You must be wondering what I am going to do with so much butter. This week I am trying various recipes for basic eggless vanilla and chocolate cakes. I am planning to bake 3 or 4 different eggless versions and will pick the best suited recipe for my home baking.

This recipe is from . This recipe does not have Eggs, Butter or condensed milk, just few readily available ingredients goes in. This is the first time I am trying eggless chocolate cake. This cake was moist and spongy. But when compared to the Cakes with eggs, I find this cake little densed.  Taste wise not so good, yeah that's what I feel. When I used sugar syrub and drizzled the cake with chocolate ganache, it tasted better.
