Eggless anjeer chocolate cake recipe - Do you have dried figs or anjeer in stock?  Here is a very simple yet delicious anjeer chocolate cake recipe for you. This is  my all time favorite cake as I like both fresh and dried anjeers a lot.  I have used few anjeers in cake and cashew nuts to garnish and baked a small cake. The cake was soft, light, delicious and it has melt in mouth texture.
