Eggless Chocolate Fudge Cake, this Diwali?

Chocolate could very well sum up celebration for kids, and most of us adults too. And make that a Chocolate Fudge Cake and boy the very thought could have you sprinting down the street in search of one. So this festive season I decided to treat my twins’ taste buds to home-made Chocolate Fudge Cake. It is easy (yes, you just need to ‘put the ingredients in the mixer and churn’, instead of ‘beat slowly till it rises’) mixing and baking and has no eggs! No eggs also means I could add it on my vegetarian Diwali Day Menu, and let the family have a choice between traditional and contemporary desserts. What’s more, with this recipe, you get to make your childhood favourite ‘Sticky Jaw’ sweets on the side too!

At this point let me let you in to a small little secret of mine, I cannot bake cookies. Nah! Either they are too hard, too soft, too burnt (ya the really charred burnt is what I mean). Cakes somehow go well with my fingers and my mouth :). And did I tell you this particular Chocolate Fudge Cake recipe makes treasures you can gulp down with a glassful of warm milk. If you don’t visit heaven post that, you simply need to dig into some more of this sinfully delicious dessert.

Chocolate Fudge Cake… Drool, Drool, Drool…

For base:
1. 120gm saltless butter
2. 180gm flour
3. 60gms golden syrup

For Fudge:
1. 175gm saltless butter
2. 1tbsp golden syrup
3. 250gm brown sugar
4. 400gm condensed milk

For the topping:
200gm of milk chocolate


For Base:
1. Preheat the oven and grease and prepare a 9-inch cake tin
2. Mix butter, flour and syrup in a mixer to make a soft and smooth batter. Pour it into the cake tin.
3. Bake it in the preheated oven for 20-25 min at 180 degrees.

For Fudge:
1. Bring the mixture of sugar, syrup, condensed milk and butter to a boil in a saucepan.
2. Then cook at a low heat, continuously stirring till it looks smooth and really thick.
3. Now take out a bowl full of this mixture and keep it aside. Pour the rest on top of the baked base and let it cool.
4. Take the left-over portion of the mixture and refrigerate it, immediately. Enjoy ‘Sticky Jaw’ sweets later (I bet you won’t stop at one).

For Topping:
1. Melt 200 gm of your or your kid’s favourite chocolate. I used milk chocolate.
2. Break into small pieces and melt the chocolate on a low heat.
3. Leave it to cool and then spread evenly on top of the fudge and cake mixture.
4. Refrigerate till the three layers set in.

Now use a fine knife to cut the Chocolate Fudge Cake in your desired shapes and sizes. I suggest you keep some tucked in safely in your fridge before you serve them to your family. Beware these buttery, rich, gooey and soft Chocolate Fudge Cake squares can lead to serious unrest on the food table. And as I mentioned above, this recipe has no eggs, so simply decorate your pooja thali with these for a little contemporary twist in Diwali celebrations! You could name it Chocolate Barfi, if that helps fit it into your Indian Festive mood.

Happy, Happy Diwali to you! I better rush before my twins single-handedly demolish the Chocolate Fudge Cake squares.
