Eggless Chocolate Cake with chocolate buttercream frosting

This Chocolate cake was baked by me for my beautiful niece Aadyaa for welcoming her at our home for first time last year when she was only three months old. It was moist, yummy and loved by all from kids to elders.

Ingredients for Cake :

1 cup All purpose flour
6 tbsp Cocoa Powder
3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup Thick Curd
1 tsp Vanilla Essence/ Chocolate Essence
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Coffee powder in 1/4 cup Hot water

Ingredients for Chocolate buttercream frosting :

1/2 cup Amul butter at room temp
2 cup Icing Sugar
4-5 tbsp Cocoa powder
2-3 tbsp Milk
A pinch of Salt
1 tsp Vanilla/Chocolate Essence
2-3 tbsp Grated White chocolate for garnishing

Method : Take one bowl sieve all purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda and keep it aside. In another bowl add sugar, vegetable oil, milk, curd and coffee mixture and mix well. Now start mixing wet ingredients with dry and add vanilla essence while mixing cake batter.

Pre heat microwave at convection mode at 180 degree for 10 mins. Pour batter in greased round cake tin of 8 inches and tap a bit to level cake batter. Bake it for 25-30 mins at 180 degrees or till its done. Take it out and keep on wire rack for cooling.

For butter cream frosting take butter in mixing bowl and whisk it with hand whisker till it is light and creamy start adding icing sugar 1/2 cup at time and whisk continuously to avoid lump formation. Keep on adding icing sugar once its done add milk, cocoa powder, salt and vanilla essence and give final whisk.

Once cake is cool apply buttercream frosting on it and finish it with grated white chocolate. Serve it to your loved ones.

Tip : If frosting is thick add milk and if it is thin add more icing sugar to it :)
