    Here I am with yet another chocolate cake for another chocolate lover. When Priya asked me if I could bake a chocolate cake for her son Rahul for his birthday, I readily agreed. The reason being I love baking and the second reason is I love to bake for kids. I still remember my first bake, which was not very great, but vibha happily ate it. When she was studying in her 8 th grade, and she ordered a pizza from dominos pizza. The sales girl at the other end asked her if she wants to place an order for chocolava cake. The reply which my daughter gave made me float on cloud nine. She said My mumma bakes the best chocolava cake. That is happiness…is it not?. So, I always love to bake for kids and Rahul’s birthday was an occasion to bake and celebrate. The specifications by the doting mother were, it has to be a chocolate cake and he loved nuts too. So came this egg-free ferroro rocher cake.

    This is a moist egg free ferroro rocher cake, which has the flavour of ferro rocher. I have substituted part of the flour with almond meal as I do not have the hazelnut flour in this chocolate cake recipe. The cake is soaked in sugar syrup so that it is moist. Filled with dark chocolate ganache. Topped with some chocochips and then piped beautifully with ganache and then further topped with ferro rocher, cadbury nutties and m&m. To please the chocolate lover, we have put some ferroro rocher pieces on the sides as well. I hope the birthday boy and his parents like the cake
