Eggless chocolate cake is a good contender for Christmas in my home. Read on and see why….
At every special occasion, there is most likely a cake. There is always a cake for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and family gatherings. Christmas is no different. During Christmas, there are many types of cakes we make, though the most popular are sponge cake and the black fruit cake.
Chocolate cakes are not so popular during the Christmas season. I mean, there is hardly a cake that could trump a tasty black fruit cake. That is why I can bravely say that this eggless chocolate cake could knock the black fruit cake from its pedestal. Okay! Well, maybe temporarily. Here’s why.
What is special about this chocolate cake? Everything. It is an eggless dessert. It is extremely easy to prepare (it is prepared in less than 20 minutes). You will find the cake filled with lots of tasty chocolate goodness. The important ingredients are chocolate powder and Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate kisses. You see, a chocolate cake is a special cake.
