Eggless chocolate cake for my valentine

Happy Valentines day to all my blogger friends. I hope you all are having a very good time with your Loved ones. At my place, the only reaction I get from S is a chukle. As if to say that I am pretty silly to celebrate this day. Anyways, his indifference cannot drench my valentine spirit. I adore S way too much for that. 

I baked this chocolate cake especially for S. Why chocolate cake? you might ask. It's simply because S is a quintessential chocoholic. At times, he is worse than my 19 month old daughter. You give him a bar of Toblerone or galaxy and he is a happy man. That's the reason I decided to bake a chocolate cake for him. I had to go through the problems of power fluctuation  and  power cut while baking the cake. At one point, I thought that the cake would be spoilt altogether. But thankfully, it came out and quite well. The smile and glow on S's face when he tasted the cake was worth all the effort and hard work.

The recipe for this cake is taken from this  blog. I have not made any changes to the recipe. The cake came out just perfect with the same measurements. Go ahead and try this version of chocolate cake and I'm sure you will be floored as well
