GOOEY CHOCOLATE CAKE FOR MY BIRTHDAY (eggless and healthy too!)

This is the cake I chose to bake on my birthday today, since a lot of my family and friends don't eat eggs.The cake is deliciously moist and tender due to the addition of yogurt, and intense chocolaty too due to the generous amounts of cocoa powder, a keeper all the way for sure, this is my go to recipe for an eggless cake!
The recipe is from the very talented Deeba's kitty and can be found here, I however played around with outstanding results, omitting eggs altogether whilst increasing the amount of yogurt.
 
Ingredients:
Flour – 1 1/2 cups
Wholewheat flour -1/2 cup
Cocoa – 2/3 cup
Instant Coffee – 2 tbsp
Baking Soda – 1 tsp
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Salted Butter – 1/2 cup; at room temperature
Sugar (powdered/caster) – 1 cup
Thick and fresh Yogurt/curd – 2 cups
Vanilla Extract – 1 tsp
Coffee Extract – 1 tsp (optional)
for filling-
Unsalted butter-50 gms
Chocolate-75gms
Icing Sugar 2 tbsp
for the frosting-
Full cream milk-2 cup
Cocoa powder-2 tbsp
Sugar (icing)-2 tbsp
knob of butter(1 tsp)
Method:
  • Grease well & flour pan you would be using approx 9' one, & preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Sift both the flours + baking powder + baking soda + salt + cocoa. Keep aside.
  • Beat the butter & sugar. Add the coffee & vanilla extract & beat.
  • Now alternatively add the flour mix & yogurt till well incorporated. Don’t over mix. The batter will be quite thick, ie, not a flowing one.
  • Turn into loaf tins/round/bundt cake pan level out & bake for 45 mins to an hour/until done. Slide a sheet of foil over the top loosely if you see it browning too soon.
  • Once done, cool in pan for 5 minutes, turn out on rack. 
    For the filling-
    Microwave chocolate and butter till beginning to soften, mix well icing sugar(sieved) and beat well ,slice cake in half and sandwich.
    for the frosting-
    Take a small saucepan and add ingredients for the frosting, boil rapidly for 20-25 minutes till thick,add butter, let cool.Drizzle on top of the cake and add silver balls, chocolate savings etc. as desired.
