Eggless Chocolate Cake

There is no reason needed for us  to bake a cake whenever we crave to eat one we bake..I had not baked cake since a month due to health reasons and couldn't wait any longer to bake one.
There was some dark chocolate lying in the fridge left after making Mousse and some chocolates .So thought of frosting the cake .I made an Eggless Chocolate cake this time and it was super moist and perfect and tasted even better after frosting it with ganache.I was not quite happy with the decoration though .I had made many truffles before but didn't have a better pic to share.
I shared the cake with my cousins and neighbours and they liked it a lot and asked me to post the recipe .Frankly speaking I didn't wanna share the post because  i  was not happy with the pic but then thought of sharing the recipe cause eventually the taste do matter.
Ingredients:

 For the Cake

140 gms All purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
100 gms caster sugar
4 tbsp coco powder
1/2 cup water + 1 tsp coffee powder
3tbsp melted butter+1 tbsp oil
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp milk cream
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Icing
200 gms semi sweet chocolate
200 ml fresh cream


Method:

Sift flour with the coco powder ,baking powder and baking soda together twice and keep aside.

Mix the butter, sugar ,milk ,cream well then add the flour and the coffee mixture and the extract and whisk well till smooth .

Pour the batter in the greased cake tin and bake for 40 min on 180 degree C or until done .

Cool the cake completely before icing.

Melt chocolate over double boiler .

Mix in the cream once the chocolate has been melted and mix well with a spatula.

Slice the cake if you wish to layer it in between  with the ganache or just cover it completely with it.

Decorate the way you like.

Refrigerate before cutting and enjoy moist soft Eggless Chocolate Cake.
