Here are a few simple cake recipes to try at home that can help you win this contest.
1. Eggless Chocolate Cake
Egg is considered an absolute essential while making cake, until Sanjeev Kapoor made an eggless chocolate cake. Here’s how you can make this cake at home in a microwave oven.
To make this cake, melt butter and dark chocolate in a bowl by heating it in a microwave. In another bowl, mix flour and baking powder and add this mixture to the melted chocolate and butter. Add the sugar and vanilla essence to this mix. Pour the milk into the bowl and stir well. Lastly add the walnuts in the mix and pour the mix in a greased microwave-proof dish. You can use oil or butter to grease the insides of the dish. Bake it in a microwave oven at 180-degree celsius for 25 to 30 minutes before serving.
2. Zesty Lemon Cake
This Zesty Lemon Cake can be made without using eggs. You won’t even need a microwave oven for this one if you have a pressure cooker.
Mix baking soda and baking powder in a bowl with maida. In a separate bowl, cream together powdered sugar and butter. add yoghurt, grated lemon peel, and lemon juice to the sugar and butter. Add the flour mixture to the butter and mix well. Grease a tin utensil with butter or oil and add the cake batter to it. Heat a pressure cooker with water and add a base to it. Place the tin utensil with the batter on top of the base and close the lid of the cooker. Let it steam for 45 minutes while you prepare the topping. Melt 3 tablespoons of sugar in water till the sugar fully dissolves. Add lemon to it and pour this mixture over the cake once it is baked and it’s ready to be served.
3. Chocolate Cookie Cake Recipe
You can have the Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake as a cake or even just as plain cookies which makes it two tasty dishes with the effort of one dish.
Take butter in a cup and add castor sugar to it along with 1 cup of refined flour (maida). Then, with 2 cracked eggs in a bowl, add 3 tablespoons of choco chips. Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and bake the batter in an oven for 10-12 minutes at 180-degrees Celsius. Make more cookies like this and places them on top of each other. In between the cooking add melted jam and whipped cream before topping it off with tutty fruity or Gems chocolate.
