No-Egg, No-Oven Delicate Chocolate Cake Recipe

Delicious Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Glaze

Cake Ingredients:

  • 300 ml milk (room temperature)
  • 170 grams sugar
  • 70 ml heated cooking oil
  • 240 grams all-purpose flour
  • 30 grams cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder

Chocolate Glaze:

  • 250 ml milk
  • 1 teaspoon Agar-Agar powder
  • 250 grams dark chocolate
  • 8 grams butter

For a Mold Sized 18x18x7 cm


Preheat Without Oven:

  1. Prepare the Pot:
    • Fill a large pot or pressure cooker with about 2 inches of water. Place a heatproof stand or trivet at the bottom. Cover it and heat on medium heat while preparing the cake batter.

Prepare the Cake Batter:

  1. Mix Wet Ingredients:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine room temperature milk, sugar, and heated cooking oil. Mix until the sugar dissolves completely.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • Sift in the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and vanilla powder. Mix until you get a smooth batter without lumps.

Grease and Prepare the Mold:

  1. Grease the Mold:
    • Grease the 18x18x7 cm mold with oil or butter. Line the bottom with parchment paper for easy removal.

Baking Without Oven:

  1. Pour the Batter:
    • Pour the prepared cake batter into the greased and lined mold.
  2. Bake the Cake:
    • Place the mold on the stand/trivet inside the preheated pot/pressure cooker. Cover the pot with a lid (do not use the pressure cooker lid) and bake on medium-low heat for about 40-50 minutes.
    • Check the doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center; if it comes out clean, the cake is done.
    • Once done, remove the cake from the pot and let it cool completely on a wire rack.

Prepare the Chocolate Glaze:

  1. Heat the Milk:
    • In a saucepan, heat 250 ml of milk over medium heat.
  2. Add Agar-Agar:
    • Once the milk is hot, add 1 teaspoon of Agar-Agar powder and stir well to dissolve.
  3. Melt the Chocolate:
    • Add 250 grams of dark chocolate (chopped) to the milk mixture. Stir continuously until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  4. Add Butter:
    • Stir in 8 grams of butter until fully incorporated and the glaze is glossy.

Glaze the Cake:

  1. Pour the Glaze:
    • Once the cake is completely cool, pour the chocolate glaze over the top, spreading it evenly.
  2. Set the Glaze:
    • Allow the glaze to set at room temperature or in the refrigerator for a firmer finish.
