I am so happy to share that my humble blog completes 3 Yrs this month. It has been an amazing journey which has taught me so many things , introduced me to many wonderful and talented people who are always encouraging with their lovely feedback which has helped me to improve.I would also like to thank my family, friends and my wonderful readers who have time and again given their honest feedback which has made me better understand them and improve myself constantly. Do continue to shower your love and blessings which will boost me .I have met many of them personally and there is long list of people whom i am keen to meet sometime soon.To share this milestone i have baked a moist chocolate cake and decorated it as well.

Now coming back to this wonderful recipe it is eggless. I have tried to step out of my comfort zone and worked with Ganache. It was an awesome experience working with chocolate ganache. I know i need to work on my decoration skills. This is just a baby step and I am happy to have taken it.

Sieve the flour, Cocoa Powder, Baking Soda and salt twice in a wide bowl . Sieve sugar in another bowl.

In another bowl mix milk,vinegar,sugar and oil. Keep it aside till sugar is completely dissolved .

Slowly unfold the flour mix into the liquid mix and mix untill you get a smooth mixture without any lumps.Do not over mix.

Pour this mixture into the greased cake tin and bake it for about 40 mins or untill the toothpick comes out clean.

Keep it on a cooling rack and allow it to cool completely.

For Ganache:

Bring Heavy cream to light simmer and switch off the flame . Pour this over the chocolate chips and cover it for about 5 mins .Do not mix. After 5 mins mix the 2 ingredients to get a smooth mixture .I got the perfect consistency for decorating the cake. Allow it to cool completely.

One cooled pour it on the cake and uniformly spread it on the whole cake.Decorate with all the toppings mentioned above and serve.
