  2. Hi,
    I tried this recipe the only variation what I did is without using eggs and secondly in microwave. It worked! Worked wonders:) I used the baking soda and that too less than a half spoon and the whole mixture in microwave for 5 mins, leave it like that there with microwave off foe 1 min and then take it out let it settle out for a minute more….and the magic is ready to be tasted. THanks for sharing this recipe but you may tune it more to add eggless or microwave version too.
    Thanks,
    Prajakta

  10. I tried this cake, it turned out good.
    but i took one and half cup flour, my 1 cup was – 250 grams
    so the cake dint turned out moist and soft, though the taste was good.
    now i will try again with only 1 cup flour.

  11. I want to try this recipe.
    can i use butter instead of refined oil? Since refined oil is not healthy.
    Please clarify my doubt.

    Hi jaishree can u help me replace sugar with honey in your eggless chocolate recipe……thanks in advance☺

    • Hi Ritika
      Are you talking about the eggless chocolate cake recipe which i made from dates…… in that recipe you can add honey in place of sugar … if you are adding honey reduce the quantity of milk to 11/2 cup if you are using honey….

  13. The cake came out really nice. Thanks for the recipe. I replaced one egg with an overripe banana, and used jaggery instead of sugar. Was wonderful, very flavorful.
