Eggless Coffee and Chocolate Cake
Hi Friends,
This cake is a keeper. If you are a coffee or chocolate lover then try it as soon as possible. Actuly a bottle of coffee which my cousin bought it from dubai was laying in the pentry. I wanted to use it for something and i was craving to try a coffee cake and ended up making this MOCHA CAKE.  Dark chocolate coffee and whole wheat flour the combination is to die for. Believe me. 
I have used whole wheat flour for it and still it was so yummy that nobody recognized that wheat flour is used for it. It was perfect then a store bought cake. You can always replace wheat flour with APF (Maida) for more airy cake but believe me its not required. You can replace vegetable oil with olive oil for more healthy version. If we skip sugar then its a healthy cake and you can enjoy it without any quilt. 
You have to try this cake. 

Whole Wheat Flour- 1.5 cups
Baking Powder- 1 tsp
Coffee- 2 tsp
Chocolate- 75gm, or half cup melted
Sugar- 1 cup
Oil- 3/4 cups
Hot Water- 1 cup
Milk- to adjust the consistency (if required)

Take all your ingredients

Flour+baking powder

sieve both of them

melt chocolate by double boiling method

now take hot water in a bowl

add coffee powder and 1 tsp sugar

mix them well

now melted chocolate and coffee mix is ready 

mix coffee mix in melted chocolate

mix them properly

 Now mix oil and sugar in a separate big bowl

add coffee and chocolate mix in it

see the shining beauty

now your dry ans wet ingredients are ready for the marriage made in heaven

add dry ingredients with wet ingredients

mix them well 
add milk if needed to adjust the consistency

Pour in the greased and dusted pan

baked for 40 minutes

Level it and turn upside down

I covered it with Mocha Icing (recipe coming soon)

It was sooooooooo addictive 

mouth watering here

  1. Please stick to the recipe for the real taste of mocha. but you can adjust the amount of coffee and chocolate as per your choice. 
  2. You can increase sugar for more sweeter cake but for us it was perfect. 
  3. You can skip coffee or chocolate and make it with any one on them. 
Hope you will like it

Dessert with Wheat Flour
Hi Friends,
Election Mania is in the air. Roads, buses, metro, poles, Radio, TV is flooded with the candidates appeal to vote for their parties. I request all of you to cast your vote to whom you think will be the best candidate for your state and country. Its question of future of you and your kids. So vote unbiased. Here I am posting a delicious halwa which ingredients are always there in the pantry. So if any time you sweet tooth starts craving for something sweet as you don't have to look for ingredients. Or if some unexpected guests come and you don't have access to any sweet then go for it. Only drawback is that you need to keep an eye on it while cooking and keep stirring all the time. Then here is one option you can roast flour before head and keep it in air tight container for later use. 
It was vanished as soon as i served it. Kids loved it and asked for more. Hope you will also like it.

Wheat Flour- 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Water- 2 cups
Ghee- one cup
Almonds- 1 tbsp (or any other dry fruit like raisin/cashew etc.)

Take all your ingredients

crush almonds

Heat water in a pan

add sugar and crushed cardamom

let boil till sugar dissolves


Now heat 3/4 cup of ghee in a big vessel

melt it

add flour and start roassting

keep stirring until you get the desired consistency

it will thicken as soon as it will cool down

 shining delicious halwa is ready



  1. Don't compromise on ghee/clarified butter if you want to relish authentic halwa. 
  2. You can skip the cardamom if you don't prefer it.
  3. Be careful adding hot sugar water in roasted flour as it will bubble a lot. So please be cautious and do it slowly and carefully. 
  4. When you will mix sugar water in roasted flour it may form lumps. Don't worry break them with the help of back of the spoon.
  5. It will be runny even if its done, don't worry it will thicken once cooled down. 
Hope you will like it
