Flax Seeds Egg-less Dry Fruit Chocolate Cake


by: Flavours Unlimited

I like to bake specially chocolate cakes . The whole house smells like a chocolate factory and the small child in me comes out as I keep peeping into the oven through the glass if the cake is rising or not. The nice aroma which fumes into your nose feels like Nirvana. I usually experiment with the nuts that I put into the chocolate and the best till date has been roasted hazel nut. I am yet to test with Pine Nuts and Pecans, an item marked in my todo list, which I think would taste great. Earlier, I used to whisk the batter with my palms which used to be extremely painstaking and if not done correctly, the cake would turn out into a dome shape and have big holes inside. Now with my electric blender, my experiments in kitchen have become much easier. Now my cakes rise evenly and also have a perfect flat top which reduces wastage if I am planning to give it a crème topping. This is the first time I tried using flax seeds as an egg substitute. The cake turned out more like a brownie and was denser compared to when I add eggs. Also, I reduced the oil to almost one-third than what I put. It still was yum , at least everybody said so .
