Easy Eggless Chocolate Cake Recipe
It was 17th of this month, that my little missy turned Three Years old.. An age where they become independent… A stage where the toddler makes their own decisions to suit their choices. They stand by them by hook or crook !!Fall on the floor rolling, Throw anything they can get hold off anywhere, bang their head , wee purposefully on the carpet, cry until they fall sick and what not…
Luckily lil miss doesn’t do any of these at the moment.Touch wood !!! But her tantrums are different in her own ways!!
Really do not know what else is in stock for me ?? And what are the new challenges I m going to face in this new Terrible Three Stage.
A few days before that, I had decided to make her birthday cake that we cut on the D- Day evening , after daddy and big brother return from work and school. So we went some candle shopping, picking her Pink No 3 one. A few more things to make it her perfect evening with the family. The big party with friends is planned for the weekend and a lot of things need to b sorted for that.
She has already decided about her Peppa Pig Cake that she wants to cut in the party, some Hello Kitty decorations , a pretty dress and more… Thats completely a girly affair, I guess !
Two days before the birthday, the mother in me had decided to bake a cake for my daughter’s perfect day.. Ingredients check done and we have everything needed for the Cake . A check box ticked in preparation. Guess on the 15th evening or so, when I was Facebook hopping in routine, came across a Motion Oats picture posted by Sreelatha of Framed Recipes and I have been awe struck how it’s beautifully done. A few minutes later, Dolphia from Story of Cooks ( as I call her the Motion Queen ) replied with a few pointers.. And that was it !!! (( Don’t forget to check out their blog’s .. Its lovely ) It was around 6pm in the evening and I decided to give it a go…. With my camera on tripod and a remote in my hand , I sifted flour for a couple of minutes… and caught so many motion images…
Sigh!! An evening when I felt totally excited for achieving what I have been gawking at many times. The only slight hitch was the higher ISO I was shooting at. So the next morning, I sifted the flour yet again, then some chocolate powder and what not… Practice and Practice is all that is needed.
Don’t forget to check out the recipe for this delicious eggless cake that is right at the bottom…
