Guest Baker Post #10

Today we have Sangita Rustogi, who has started her own baking venture called ‘Bakers Street’. This is her baking story and one of her favourite recipes; the Eggless Chocolate Cake. In her own words:

I am an interior designer, born and brought up in Delhi. As I’m from an architect family, creativity runs in my blood. My baking journey started during my schooling, in Sardar Patel Vidyalaya. Then, my dear friend Meenakshi Ranga introduced me to this lovely group, Bread bakers, in 2016. I attended a few live sessions conducted by Renu ma’am, and learnt so much. She is an amazing Guru and a wonderful human being. Her recipes are very easy to follow and practical. Initially, my breads were quite dense, but through practice, I managed to perfect them. Renu ma’am was always there when we were stuck- just a phone call away.

Our bread bakers group is always ready to answer your queries, motivate you and make you feel like a star by making your bake the group DP. One feels so proud and on top of the world. I have learnt so many things from this group whether its baking, cooking or desserts.

My friends and family relish the cakes, pizzas, stuffed breads, and pies that I bake. They were amazed when they learnt that I’d baked them all from scratch.

During lockdown, I started baking cakes with different types of frosting, after watching multiple videos and online live tutorials. I recently started using different types of flours, seeds and herbs in my bakes to make them healthier. I am currently using the Morphy Richards 40 ltrs OTG. I knead the dough with hands- it turns out better that way! I would love to learn how to bake sourdough breads, bao buns and macarons.

I also introduced a few of my friends to this lovely group- Mamta Jain, Nisha Tazir, Vineeta Rustogi, Niti Gupta and Meenakshi Vasan.

I usually bake twice a week- from buns, stuffed breads and kulchas, to pizzas and cinnamon buns.

My children encouraged me to start my own venture, Baker Street. My friends too have motivated me and appreciated me throughout my journey. I am truly blessed to have Renu ma’am, my family and friends in my life. Now, I have become a home baker from a home maker.

I use Angel yeast for all my breads and buns. Here, I am sharing the recipe of eggless chocolate cake

Recipe: Eggless Chocolate Cake


  • All purpose flour – 1¼ cups
  • Curd – 1 cup
  • Oil – ½ cup + 2 tbsp
  • Baking Powder – ½ tsp

    The baking journey of Sangita had an important milestone with guidance of Renu Mm. It added so many delicacies and interesting talking points with children and of course with her friends. On many occasions , I have given reference of Sangita , the cake maker in my interaction which helped to cut the ice . I enjoy her preparations and feel fortunate to be at her side to relish them all visually at least , as some of the masterpieces are only to see and not to touch , or eat. Baking has made life little more interesting at this stage . There is always something new to look at and to enjoy.
