Eggless chocolate-cherry Cake

It’s been and is a busy week for me. To many things both at work and home.  But a quick drop to share the recipe of the chocolate cherry cake I baked last weekend and 3/4 of the cake got gobbled the same day by the hubby and daughter. With the Man being a complete chocolate lover and the little one, call her a cherry-berry girl.

Its tough to make anything of the berries with my little one around as loves them fresh and never leaves me in peace till I give a big share (then with hardly  anything left for the recipe I decide to do it another day. In many cases that never happens!!). So the last weekend she had a play-date with her friends and daddy decided to go along. And that I had a whole day all to myself. Spent couple of hours at the library and then got back and baked the cake by the time the little one got back home. She was happy she had some fresh cherries and more happy to find them in her favorite cake too.

Over to the recipe , this is egg less moist cake with the cherries to bite into. It also doesn’t use butter, instead its Vegetable oil.

All-purpose flour – 1 1/2 cups
Caster sugar – 3/4 cup

  1. It's stunning and I have a strong love for cherries but not for chocs. I like eggless cake very much and ok,came back home early today, wrote down the ingredients and baking time but I will use pineapples inside.

  2. Ahh.. U shud be definitely happy na Rekha that she loves fruits in the raw form.. I wish me & my man were like that.. It's very difficult to feed us certain fruits in the raw form.. There comes recipes like this for our rescue.. Love the dark texture of the cake.. Anything for chocolate & if fruit is in it, I am all the more happy person !!
