21) Check the cake by inserting a toothpick in the center of the cake. If it comes out clean that means cake it ready. Remove it from the oven and put on the wire rack. Let it cool down for 10 minutes in the pan itself.

22) After 10 minutes, run the butter knife around the edges to loosen up the sides.

23) Then invert the cake upside down to the cooling rack.  Many beginners asks me that how to invert the cake. For those I have shown the step by step photos. Once the sides are loose, put the wire rack on top the cake pan. Then invert the upside down. Lightly tap on the cake pan. And gently lift the cake pan.

24) Let the cake cool down completely on wire rack. It will take about 1 to 1 ½ hours depending the weather. Then frost the cake.

25) For making ganache frosting, Take heavy cream and butter in a pan. Turn the heat on medium.

26) Bring the mixture just to a boil. As soon as it comes to a boil, turn off the stove.

FAQs

1) Can this be made in pressure cooker?
Ans: Not sure. I have never used pressure cooker for baking purpose.

2) Can I use salted butter?
Ans: Yes you can. The taste will be slightly different, but definitely it tastes good

3) Can I substitute the sweetened condensed milk?
Ans: No you cannot. It provides richness, sweetness and flavor to the cake. Also it acts as an egg replacer. If you are looking for cake made without condensed milk then check out my eggless chocolate cupcakes made with oil and vinegar.

4) Can I bake this eggless chocolate cake in different size cake pan?
Ans: Yes you can. Few things to keep in mind.
— I am using 9 inch cake pan. It measures 6 cups. Try filling you cake pan with water and measure how many cups equals your pan. And decide from there that you need to half the batter or double or triple the batter. For example, you want to bake in 10×10 inch square cake pan which is approx. 12 cups. So you might need to make double the batter.
— Secondly, The baking temperature will be the same. But baking time may vary. You need to bake for less time if cake pan is smaller. Or bake for more time if cake pan in larger.
