Today I am dedicating this post to my hero and that’s my DAD . He turns 75 today. I am a bit emotional too as we celebrate his birthday virtually. It is tough for all of us but I want to see the positive side of it. I am blessed to be his daughter. He is a very humble and a very affectionate person. I have acquired most of his traits which I am proud of. My Mom will surely vouch for this statement.I can go on and on writing about him.In these tough times do keep us in your prayers and wish my parents a very Happy and Healthy Life. We are Celebrating his birthday with this delicious Eggless chocolate cake (Vegan).
My DAD my HERO………………………
My dad is my pillar of strength. Every daughter’s first hero is their dad and so is mine.We think alike. I have seen him always smiling and happy no matter what. I was scared of him only when he taught me Mathematics. Not sure if I was scared of him or the subject in my primary school.The memories are just flashing in front of my eyes today. He is leading a very simple and principled life .He has imparted the same values to me and my brother. We love you DAD.
Ingredients for Eggless Chocolate Cake (Vegan):
Unbleached All Purpose Flour: I have used unbleached All purpose flour. You can use wheat flour instead.
Cocoa Powder: Use good quality cocoa powder to get good results.
Baking Soda:We have used only one leavening agent here. You cannot substitute baking powder with baking soda in this recipe. Use Eno if you do not have baking soda.
Salt: It balances the sweetness and enhances the flavor of the cake
Water: I have used cold water here.
Sugar: I have used cane sugar. You can use any sweetners of your choice.
Neutral Oil: I have used Sunflower Oil.You can use any neutral oil.
Vanilla Essence: I like to add vanilla essence in my bakes.
White Vinegar: I have used white vinegar. You can use lemon juice in case you do not have vinegar.
