YOU WON’T MISS EGGS IN THIS MOIST EGGLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE
Eggless Chocolate Cake is for real, and, to be honest, I had no idea you could make such a moist chocolate cake without eggs.
I know I was just as shocked, and it’s perfect, thick, moist and overall an eggless chocolate coffee cake recipe that everyone should try.
Our son is a massive fan of chocolate cake but is very particular about what kinds, and this eggless chocolate coffee cake was a HIT.
That’s exciting news for us as parents of a picky eater child, even though this is only a treat he gets once in a while.
We’ve even turned this eggless chocolate coffee cake into muffins so he can take them to school.
He’d sooner eat a boxed chocolate cake since it is so moist than a dense homemade cake or brownie (my favourite).
Satisfying Your Sweet Tooth
It was just the other night I had a chocolate craving, and I was tempting myself to head to the kitchen to make my Fudgy Brownies.
Although my Facebook Fans motivated me to get up and bake, I decided to wait a day as it was a bit late.
During a Facebook conversation, two fans Christine Weadick and Sarah Jackson, started talking about allergies and eggless cakes.
Sarah’s little one is allergic to eggs and was looking for some new easy eggless recipes.
It’s not so easy to find eggless cakes at the grocery store, and honestly, your best bet when allergies are involved is to bake it yourself.
Then, outcomes Christine, a long-time CBB fan, to the rescue with her easy eggless chocolate cake recipe, and boy are we glad she did.
Eggless Chocolate Cake
Christine went on to post her favourite eggless chocolate cake recipe, and I was intrigued by it.
The next evening I made her eggless chocolate cake, and it turned out so good it was gone within a couple of days.
So yes, you can make an egg-free chocolate cake, and it will taste amazing.
If you use good organic cocoa, the flavour erupts in your mouth like a blast of chocolate which I strongly suggest doing.
We buy our Organic Rodelle Cocoa at Costco or find it on Amazon Canada. A little goes a long way. It’s so good.
If you’re looking for an easy chocolate cake recipe that won’t keep you in the kitchen for hours, this is the one.
If you have company coming over and want a last-minute dessert, serve this one up, and your guests will clean their plates.
We use this cake to make our son’s birthday cake every year because we know he will eat it.
Eggless Chocolate Cake With Hints Of Coffee
So, I was happy with the eggless chocolate cake recipe and wanted to switch it up a bit the following day with different flavours.
I wanted to make the best chocolate cake ever, and I didn’t want to use eggs to do it.
So my eggless chocolate cake wanted it to be full of chocolate, but I wanted to have real depth in taste with coffee.
I’ve always wanted to make a coffee cake that was moist and good enough to eat for breakfast!
I mean, what’s the difference? The world feeds kids Nutella to start the day.
Ok, so maybe not a healthful breakfast, but I’m sure it will kick-start the first hour of your day!
You can also use decaffeinated instant coffee if you are worried about caffeine or don’t care but love the coffee taste.
If you prefer to leave the coffee out, you can do that as well.
Switching Up Cake Recipes
I have a habit of wanting to mess about with ingredients in the kitchen to see what will happen.
Sometimes it’s not pretty, but it gets easier as you know how certain ingredients work together as you go along.
Learning how to bake a cake, predominantly a basic white or chocolate cake, will help you create signature cakes you can call your own.
You can add chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, but remember, measurements when baking can be critical to a cake’s success.
Trial and error is the name of the game and the way any good baker learns, so don’t be afraid to try something new.
Like I mentioned above, I turned this eggless chocolate coffee cake into muffins, and you can even make a loaf cake.
Frugal Baking At Home
We typically end up with more food than we can sometimes handle, so don’t be afraid to take a piece to your neighbour as we did.
Your friends and family won’t believe you made this eggless chocolate cake from scratch.
This eggless chocolate coffee cake is easy on the budget and simple to make, and fun for the kids to get involved with.
Overall it cost about $6.50 for the pan with icing, not including time and electricity to bake it.
