made eggless too .I will be giving a follow up recipe below, for eggless.

So let’s get into the recipe.

First blend the dates to a coarse paste,add the chocolate powder,yoghurt,oil, allspice
powder and eggs and blend for 5 minutes.
Mix the flour,baking powder,baking soda,together and fold into the date mixture till well

For the icing
100 gm chocolate
1/4 cup cream
1/2 -3/4 cup jaggery/coconut sugar.(treacle can be used too)
Melt all in a double boiler and when the mix is silky ,poke holes with a skewer on the
cake and pour over the cake.
