    Hi was watching yur video of black forest wanted to know why u use sand to bake if nt was is the other alternative…n does it differ in taste .thanks

      I want to help create an eggless chocolate cake without using the traditional oven. As oven isn’t common in everybody’s kitchen in India. And if you watch my video carefully I mentioned, you can use either salt or sand to create a base for the oven. It doesn’t affect the taste of the cake. It turns out perfectly all the time. Sand has high heat retention capacity and the salt has the same property as well. So I used salt here as it is easily available in everybody’s kitchen.

    Hi Sruthi, first of all thanks for your wonderful recepie. I tried it in my home but it turned out very very soft and it is braking easily. I made this for tres leches, after pouring all wet ingredients and after some standing time it became like pudding, not cakey at all. I follow your recepie same to same as you wrote on your website but i dont know where was the mistake happened. Please give some suggestion for this. Thank you.

      I’m sure you might have poured the milk mixture when the cake is still hot or warm. One should do it only after the cake cools down completely.
