  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F). Line the base of a square pan (8"x8") with butter paper, or grease the base with butter and dust with flour till well coated and set aside. I used a BUNDT CAKE pan (nonstick 9.75 X 3.38 inches). Beat the eggs until fluffy pureed and flavored tofu until you see air bubbles in them and set aside. This step is OPTIONAL
  2. Meanwhile, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.Do this thrice and set aside.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the vanilla essence and beat well.
  4. Add the tofu beaten eggs to the butter-sugar mixture and beat well till it has been incorporated. Seeing a curdles kind of texture, I thought I messed up the batter but nothing like that happened. So dont worry about that look.
  5. Now, add the sifted flour mixture to the butter-sugar-egg mixture little by little and beat well till blended smoothly.
  6. Add adequate milk to achieve a batter of dropping consistency.
  7. Pour batter into the readied pan, smoothen the top and bake for 45-50 minutes or till done. ( My oven took only about 32 minutes).
  8. I toppled it out after it had cooled and here is the final cake.
  9. Makes one - 8"X8" Square cake. I made use of 9.75X3.38 inch bundt cake pan.
