How to make a chocolaty cake by using cocoa or chocolate?

Many a times this questions arises whether to use cocoa, chocolate or a combination of two. The cake prepared by using only chocolate had a milder chocolaty flavor and after baking turn out light brown in color. Using only cocoa powder will have a deep dark color and had intense chocolate flavor loaded. Rather it is like overdose of chocolate. Coming to conclusion, a cake made from a combination of cocoa powder and chocolate is the perfect in all terms of color, flavor, texture and taste.

What is the accurate baking temperature?

Temperature can make or break the cake. Most of the culinary experts ask you to bake at 350ᵒ F. If your temperature is low, then all the process of cake formation will be delayed and may not get completed resulting in the cake being soft and smooth but gummy. If you go for a higher temperature, it is likely that the crust of the cake is baked for quickly than the internal batter. So the best temperature is 350 degrees resulting in a soft, smooth, well caramelized and fluffy cake.

What are substitutes for egg?

Eggs provide the required moisture to the cake and also act as binding agent. Some people are allergic to eggs or are vegans who do not want egg in their cakes. There are substitutes available in the market for that. You can use flaxseed meal. For one egg it is used in ration of 1 spoon flaxseed meal to 3 spoons of water. It provides the necessary stability, moisture and a pleasant wheaty flavor to the cake. Next you can also opt for Tofu. ¼ cup of tofu for each egg.
