Eggless Chocolate Desserts

There are reasons for so called “no egg” in the recipes…

1. not being able to eat/digest egg because of health,

2. vegetarians

3. you ran out of eggs; because you ran out of gas you don't feel like going to the store! :)

Moist Eggless Chocolate Cake

Ingredients for cake:

1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup (1 tsp. of coffee = 1/4 cup hot water) hot coffee

1/4 cup milk (I used plain non-fat, measured it with dry measuring cup)

1/4 cup yogurt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 170 C. Lightly grease an 8-inch round cake pan and dust it with cocoa powder.

In a large bowl sift together the all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder and sugar. Make a well.

Add all the wet ingredients one by one.

With an electric mixer, beat the mixture on low speed for 2-3 minutes until the dry and wet ingredients are well combined. Do not over beat it (I didn’t use electric mixer but only baking spatula to mix the ingredients).

Pour the batter in the prepared pan. Tap the pan a couple of times so the batter is spread evenly and there are no air bubbles.

Bake for about 30 min. Check the cake with tooth pick. Toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake should come clean when the cake is ready.

Once out of the oven, transfer the pan to a wiring rack to cool. After about an hour remove the cake from the pan and let the cake cool completely before frosting.

Yield: One 8-inch or 9-inch cake.

Ingredients for frosting :

3 tablespoons margarine/butter at room temperature

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3-4 tablespoons milk, fat free

Directions:

In a medium size bowl add the margarine, powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Start beating with an electric mixer on low speed. At this stage it may seem to be very dry. Don’t panic. Wait until you add the milk.

Add milk little by little and continue beating the mixture till you get a nice spreadable consistency.

Now transfer the cake to a plate and start frosting it.

Cool down in fridge for at least one hour (the texture of the frosting will look better after at least one hour in fridge).

Yield: About 3/4th cup of frosting, enough for one 8-inch or 9-inch cake.

Eggless Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies Using Condensed Milk

Ingredients:

2 sticks butter, softened (I used Smart Balance 50/50 Blend)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk (I used Eagle Brand Fat-Free Milk)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (not mentioned in the original recipe but I included it)

2.25 cup all purpose flour (I used 2 cups flour and 1/4 cup cocoa powder instead, see Note below)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1.75 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips/chunks (I used white chocolate chips)

Optional nuts (I used chopped walnuts for 1 batch)

Procedure:

Preheat the oven to 350F (180C) for 15 minutes.

Grease baking sheets or line it with parchment paper.

Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until pale and creamy (for 5 minutes).

Pour in the condensed milk, vanilla extract and beat to combine.

In a separate bowl, sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder and combine well.

Stir into the butter mixture, then add the chocolate chips, nuts (if using).

Combine it well using a spatula. Don’t beat it.

Take a tablespoonful of dough, roll it and flatten it using your fingers. Grease the tablespoon, so that the dough will fall off easily.

Bake it for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown. (The color check can be done if using all purpose flour only. Mine were done at 17 minutes).

Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes in the baking sheet itself. Don’t try to remove it. It may look unbaked but it will become hard on the baking sheet itself.

After 5-10 minutes, using a spatula transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes:

I had only white chocolate chips in my pantry. White chocolate chips with all purpose flour, will have a pale look, so to give a contrast in color, I mixed 1/4 cup of baking cocoa (Dorste) to 2 cups of all purpose flour, not changing the 2.25 cups of flour mentioned in the original recipe. So if you have semi-sweet chocolate chips, you can just use all purpose flour alone to bake the usual chocolate chip cookies.

The cookies were very sweet. I would suggest reducing the chocolate chips to 1.25 cups and add some chopped nuts or quick cooking oats instead.

If you are using a dark (black) color non stick baking sheet, reduce the baking time by 1 or 2 minutes, so that the bottom does not get burnt.

The cookies were crispy, not chewy. So if you want a chewy chocolate chip cookie, I think decreasing the quantity of butter or increasing the all purpose flour would be helpful.
