Basic eggless chocolate cake

The first cake I ever baked was an Eggless chocolate cake… my mom and I love chocolate cake.

Let me let you in on a secret… when you eat the cake, you don’t even know that there are no eggs in it…if my own opinion the cake is lighter and softer and even more moist that a cake that has egg in.

This is the basic cake  that I use most of the time and then I just decorate it to my hearts content.



All Purpose Flour – 1 cup

Baking Powder -1 tsp

Baking Soda – 1⁄2 tsp

Cocoa Powder – 6 tbsp

Castor sugar – 1 cup

Cooking oil – 1⁄2 cup

Hot Coffee – 1⁄4 cup (1 tsp of coffee in 1⁄4cup hot water)

Milk – 1⁄4 cup

Yogurt – 1⁄4 cup

Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

Chocolate Icing –

Unsalted Butter – 100 gms, room temp

Cocoa powder – 1⁄3 cup

Icing sugar – 100g

Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

Hot water – 2-3 tsp


In a large bowl sift together the all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder and sugar.

Make a well, add all the wet ingredients one by one.

Mix well, till everything is combined

Pour into a greased 20cm cake tin

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes, or until the cake tester comes out clean.
