Strawberry u/d Chocolate Cake (eggless) - Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day. V- Day is not officially celebrated at home so I am not detailing much about it. I prefer to celebrate the day 'coz you can have another day of gifting & cheer... :-)

This cake is an eggless one as mentioned and it was tasty....the downside up was sweet with all that brown sugar in there...and the tiny pieces of strawberries however baked and merged itself into the batter...that is why u can see some gaps in there..the only suggestion besides this recipe is to just halve the strawberry  so that it stays intact even after it is baked...

ingredients for the upside down base

Strawberry – 10-12 nos, chopped
Brown Sugar - 4 tbsp
Butter – 2 tbsp
Dry ingredients for the cake

Flour – 1 1/2 cups (150 gms)
Cocoa powder – 3 tbsp
Baking powder – ¾ tsp
Baking soda – 1/3 tsp

ingredients for the wet mix

Brown Sugar – 4 tbsp
Condensed milk – 200 ml
Milk – 20 ml or cream - 3 tbsp
Oil – 7 tbsp
Vanilla extract – ¾ tsp


Preheat oven at 180 C.

Prepare a heart shaped pan or a pan of your choice (butter the pan and sprinkle flour and dust off excess flour). Place a butter paper which is generously spread with butter. Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly and place the chopped strawberries evenly. Keep it aside.

In a bowl mix together the wet ingredients and stir till the brown sugar is melted.

Sieve together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder.

Stir in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir till no lumps are found. Immediately pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 180 C for 25 - 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes. Since you have a butter paper at the bottom, taking the cake out is an easy task. Just turn it into a plate, cut it and eat it..thats it...
