Eggless Oreo Chocolate Cake is the cake I decided I should make as a special Valentine’s Cake. I took some efforts to frost it with Dark Chocolate Ganache and Oreo Biscuits. Kids were so impressed and said I should have waited for Valentine’s day to bake this cake. I said I won’t have been able to bake it on that day and hence all the dishes got done ahead.
This cake is inspired from Rajani’s cake and it got so beautifully baked. The cake was done in 30 mins time. However I baked it for another 5 mins. I should have sliced between and added some ganache along with sugar syrup. I felt I could avoid the extra sugar. However Konda said I should have. After resting overnight the cake was very soft unlike how it was little dry right away after scling through. The crushed oreo biscuits were not visible at all and the cake had a lovely dark hue after baked.
This the final one for Valentine’s Special for BM#73, week 2.
