Simple Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake is an all-time favourite bake, simple and delicious and versatile.
An easily adaptable cake make the chocolate cake as a sheet cake, muffins, one-pan cake, 3 layer cake, bundt cake. The best part is you can use the ingredients locally available to make this cake not just Hershey’s ingredients.
I first came across this delicious Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake Egg-less when I was a part of eggless baking group where we converted cakes with eggs to eggless cakes.
The reason I am baking this cake is birthday we have 3 birthdays in a row. Mine followed by hubby then by the kiddo. So this becomes a bake season much to my elder daughter’s irritation. She is a May baby and so it becomes too hot to bake then.
The ingredients you will need to make a Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake Egg-less
- The main ingredient of the Chocolate Cake is Cocoa, Yes Cocoa not chocolate.
- The liquids that we need are water, milk and oil.
- In case you are using eggs then you need 4 eggs, or use 2 tablespoon egg replacer powder with 6 tablespoon of water.
- The fat is an oil that I have mentioned earlier.
- The flour I have used ragi flour once, generally, I use maida/app purpose flour.
- The fluffy cake will depend on your baking powder, there are people who use baking soda too but I don’t like the flavour it gives. (everyone says it is n my head but yes I avoid baking soda).
- Since we are using the oil you will need to use salt, essence for a lovely aroma. I love a mix of coffee and vanilla.
