Eggless Black Forest Cake - Step by step Pictorial

Dear All,

Eggless Black Forest Cake Recipe
Today I am going share a tutorial with you for baking an eggless black forest cake with step by step instructions. Hope this is helpful to all who are scared of baking cakes and will find courage and encouragement from this post to bake one successfully! I bakes this cake for my dad's 60th birthday for which we gave him a surprise birthday party :) The cake came out beautiful and was loved by everyone! It was moist and delicious!




I have just adapted the recipe which I used here in my earlier Eggless Chocolate Cake.
Now lets get started with the procedure without any further delays!

Ingredients For Cake:-
225 gms all purpose flour ie maida
1/2 cup unsalted butter ie 110 gms
4 tbsp of cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tin sweetened condensed milk ie 400 gms
2 tsp of vanilla essence or seeds from 1 vanilla bean scrapped
200 ml coke or pepsi

Ingredients For Icing:-
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup or more chocolate curls or shavings
1/2 cup cherries, remove the seeds and slice it in half

For sugar syrup - Mix 4 to 5 tbsp of sugar in half cup of water.



Procedure:-
  • Grease and flour a 9 inch square baking pan, preheat the oven at 190 degrees C.
Photobucket

  • Measure all the dry ingredients ie flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder.
Photobucket

  • Sieve the dry ingredients.
Photobucket


Photobucket

  • Melt the butter in microwave and cool it completely.
Photobucket
  • Beat together condensed milk and butter until its light and cream.
Photobucket

  • Add in your vanilla essence or scrapped vanilla beans which I have used.
Photobucket

  • Beat it together until its well mixed.
Photobucket

  • Now start adding the dry ingredients along with little coke at a time and beat slowly, follow this until all the dry ingredients is well blended and you get a uniform batter.
Photobucket
  • This is how your final batter will look like.
Photobucket
  • Pour the batter in the prepared baking tin and bake for 35 to 40 mins until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
Photobucket

Your final baked cake will look something like this :)

Photobucket

  • Once its baked..remove from oven and cool it completely before inverting.
Photobucket

  • Now lets prepare the icing for the cake, take 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and beat it on high for 8 to 10 mins until its stiff enough and hold its shape. To make sure if the cream is ready it should give peaks.
Photobucket

  • Cut the cake from middle and divide into two and moisturize it using the sugar syrup we made earlier.This will help to keep the sponge moist and soft.
Photobucket

  • Spread an even layer of fresh cream icing, top it with dark chocolate curls and cherries.
Photobucket
  • Again top it with fresh cream, this will make sure your filling is in place.
Photobucket

  • After topping with cream it will look something like below.
Photobucket

  • Place the other half layer of cake carefully on the top and start covering the sides and top of the cake with the remaining icing. Before covering the sides of the cake do not forget to moisturize the top using the sugar syrup. Drizzle some syrup on top using spoon.
Photobucket
  • Try to cover the sides and top as evenly as possible, don't worry too much if its uneven as anyways we will be covering it up with chocolates and cherries.
Photobucket

  • For the sides you can simple sprinkle some chocolate curls or chocolate sprinkles but I have made a border out of melted chocolate and stuck the same on all four sides.
Photobucket
  • Finally decorate the top of the cake with lots of chocolate curls and cherries, this decoration can be as you like, let you imagination play wild. I have kept it simple here.

  24. Thank you everyone for your kind comments!
    @Pari, you can find heavy whipping cream in Spencers, it comes in packaging of 250 ml or 200 ml sorry not able to remember the exact name,I have used Rich's whip topping this one is more trickier to get as its not easily available everyone but you can check with stores storing baking and chocolate making items, it should be available with them.
    @Kavya, I used dark chocolate for making the border.

Hi Mitha..thank you so much for reaching out dear and m glad the cake tasted awesome..you can use plain bottled soda instead of pepsi or coke..you can even use milk :) I just feel soda/coke helps in texture of cake better than milk :) hope this helps..do let me know if incase of any doubts :)
