Eggless Black Forest Cake

Yesterday was hubby's birthday but we celebrated it on last weekend. No party! Just made him a cake and one simple meal.Yeah, it has been a hectic I have a little project going on here. So, quite ! I even have problem frosting the cake due to my exhaustion. Lack of concentration at the same time. BUT the cake turns out unexpectedly good. :o) Thanks to Diane Marie (my dear neighbour) for your lovely eggless cake recipe. Everyone loves it.

Ingredients  for Eggless Chocolate Sponge:
125gm   butter
1 cup     sugar
1 tspn   vanilla essence/extract

1 cup   milk (add 2 tspn  lemon juice)
1-1/2 cup  all purpose flour
1/4 cup   cornflour
1 tspn  baking powder
1 tspn  baking soda
one pinch of salt

1 cup   cocoa powder
1/2 to 2/3 cup  boiling water

Ingredients for Cream cheese mixture :
200gm   cream cheese, softened
40ml   lime juice
one lime zest
3 tbsp  sugar
(mix all ingredients and beat till well combined)

Decorations :
1 can  pitted dark cherry
2/3 cup  non-dairy whipping cream
grated chocolate for topping

Method :
(1)  mix ingredients (C) to form a paste.
(2)  in another bowl,  beat ingredients (A) till fluffy.
(3)  then stir cocoa mixture into ingredients (A) and mix till combined.
(4)  alternately, beat in milk and flour mixture till everything well mixed.
(5)  pour batter to a 9" tray lined with parchment paper.
(6)  add in cream cheese mixture and make a swirl between the two mixture.
(7)  finally bake at preheated oven 175-180'C for about 45-55 mins or till cooked.
(8)  leave cool completely before frosting with whipped cream and then keep refrigerated till frosting is set before further decorations.

This cake has became one of my boy favourites ever since then. He never had enough of it and has requesting for more. Hope you guys will enjoy it too.
