Eggless Choco Lava Cake

I had once been to a masterclass conducted by Chef Daniel Koshy  , the Executive Pastry Chef at JW Mariott , Bangalore . In his class he had shown making of choco lava cake . The cake was the hero that day .The chef demonstrated the making of the choco lava cake from scratch during which he shared with us many tips and secreats to make it perfect . He made the making look so simple … Once done the dessert went for baking and within few minutes the soft spongy choco lava cake was ready to relish . N Wow !! it was so yummmmm….melt in mouth… Since then i too wanted to make these choco lava cake . But the ones shown by the chef was with eggs but i wanted eggless choco lava cake . After referring many sites.. with few trials , tweaks in the recipe .. finally i am fully satisfied with my eggless choco lava cake . They are just perfect .. soft ..choclaty .. gooey .. Though i have made these eggless choco lava cake using OTG .. one can also make in microwave . Its more quicker . But one thing is sure .. which ever way you opt.. kids will just love it . Do try them for yourself and i am sure you too will love it..

  1. If you are doing in microwave .. bake them for 2 - 3 mins on high power . Allow to cool for 2-3 mins and relish .
  2. Don't fill the muffin liners more than 3/ 4 th else it will overflow while baking.
  3. Curd reacts with baking soda and makes the cake soft and moist . So be gentle while mixing, take care that the mixture should not lose its air particles.
  4. Always keep an eye when the baking nears the ending time. We don't want our cake to get over baked.
  5. Once the batter is ready don't allow it to sit for sometime. You have to bake immediately.
