Actually when I made this cake I had all the ingredients except eggs. Then what anyways I love eggless cakes. However the challenge was to make the cake spongy and that texture. I tried them and the result was nice texture, spongy, fluffy, soft and delicious cake. I added some orange zest and some juice to give that tangy and juicy flavor.

Total Time: 1 hour 30 mins

Yields: 1.5 kg cake

Ingredients:

For Cake Batter:

  1. 300 gms soft margarine
  2. 200 gms brown sugar
  3. 3 tbsp flax seed
  4. 2 tbsp sunflower seed
  5. 3 tbsp golden syrup
  6. 3 tbsp milk
  7. 300 gms self raising flour ( 270 gms flour + 2 tbsp corn flour + 1 t/s salt + 1 tbsp baking powder)
  8. 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  9. 2 tbsp vanilla powder Or vanilla extract
  10. 5 tbsp orange juice
  11. 2 tbsp orange zest
  12. 2 tbsp dark chochips
  13. 2 tbsp white chocochips

For Frosting:

  1. 300 ml whipped cream ( I used bluebird brand)
  2. 100 gms icing sugar Or plain sugar
  3. 2 tbsp raspberry Or any fruit jam
  4. 5 tbsp chocolate sauce Or syrup (I used Hershey’s syrup)

For Decoration:

  1. 1/2 cup almond flakes
  2. few cherries
Equipment Required:
  1. 2 round pans
  2. 1 piping bag ( I made a butter paper piping bag)

Method:

Preheat the oven at 190° C exactly ten mins before baking. Grease both baking pans and dust some flour. Sift all dry ingredients and keep aside.

Cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Roast flax seed and sunflower seed for 2 to 3 mins on low fire. Grind them into a processor until fine powder is formed. Mix 6 tbsp hot water to it and keep aside. Add flax-sunflower water paste along with milk. Also add golden syrup. Beat until all is blend nicely.

Mix dry with ingredients gradually. Beat until all incorporates well. Lastly add orange zest and juice. Beat for a minute more. Lastly add chocochips and keep some reserved for the topping.

Now pour the batter into the greased pan. Scatter rest of choco chips on top. Bake at 190°C for 30 to 35 mins Or once skewer comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool down. Unmould the cake gently. Now lets prepare the frosting.

Icing:

Take whipped cream beat them placing some ice cubes below the vessel. This will give a nice impact especially in hot countries.

Add icing sugar and beat until soft peaks are formed. Place them in refrigerator again.

In the meanwhile keep your piping bags ready. Spread some jam on top of both cakes.

Spread the cold whipped cream on one cake all over. Place other cake over it and make a nice thick coating with whipped cream. Please reserve some for decorating cake.

Drizzle  some chocolate sauce over it. Scatter almond flakes towards the periphery or the cake. Allow the cake to chill for an hour. Fill the piping bags with whipped cream.

Make small mounds of them after a tow inch gap on all sides of cake. Place glazed cherries over the cream. Refrigerate the cake. Serve chilled with a dollop of icecream.

Tip:
  • Ensure the whipped cream is cold before you use them.
  • Don’t overbake the cake.
  • You could use 3 eggs instead of flax and sunflower seeds.
