Eggless Chocolate Cake

This Eggless Chocolate Cake made by Nunu and her Sister is perfect for those who are not able to consume eggs. Moist, Gooey Cake that is not only eggless but effortless as well.

By effortless, I mean no whisking. No piles of bowls and whisks to wash. Nothing. Just mix it all up and bake. Perfect project for the kids. The girls had fun mixing up the ingredients till smooth. Barely 5 minutes of prep and 35 minutes later the Cake is done.

If you need to go eggless, try this cake. As with all things that compromise on something or the other, I believe this cake is best with a simple glaze or frosting.
