Egg-less Molten Lava Cake

Just out of the oven

When Gayatri announced that for the Eggless Baking Group we were to try Molten Lava cake that  Sowmya of Nivedhanam  had suggested  this month my girls were thrilled!!

For the challenge Gayatri had provided a recipe from Noobcook. The recipe is here but in case you want to try making it egg less it will not work as it is.
I mean replacing just the eggs with the replacer that you plan like I did will not work; you will have a cake that looks like this in your hands.

 

 The others have successfully tried the recipe by increasing the flour and reducing the butter.
Then I decided to use the recipe that I had tried out ages ago from Vidya of Sugar n’Spice. Below is the same recipe but made egg less with a few changes.
By the way these pictures are taken in the evening after sunset kindly excuse!

Ingredients:

·       115 grms of chocolate
·        115 grms of butter (I used Amul) + for greasing 6 ramekins( I used bowls)
·        ¼ cup curd (thick)
·        ¼ cup milk
·        1 tsp vinegar
·        I tsp vanilla essence
·        1/3 cup sugar
·        ¼ cup + 1 ½ tbspn Maida

Method:

1.     Pre heat oven to 180ºC. Butter the ramekins sides and the base.
2.     Mix the chocolate and the butter in the microwave proof bowl and melt the chocolate and butter. Use short spurts of 30 secs till all the chocolate has melted. Stir in between the microwaving.  It will be faster if the chocolate is in smaller bits.
3.     Meanwhile beat the milk, vinegar, curd and sugar in a medium bowl till the sugar dissolves. Stir in the vanilla essence.
4.     Once the chocolate has melted Add the chocolate and butter mix to the milk and curd mixture and sugar mix, add the maida and fold well till well incorporated.
5.     Pour the mix till ¾ full and bake in the oven. The time taken will differ from oven to oven .Do check it out for your oven.
6.    I needed exactly 12.62 minutes for this gooey effect.
7.      Serve hot immediately with ice cream or whipped cream or dusted with icing sugar.



Thanks Gayatri and Sowmya without your push I would have never tried this cake egg-less.
