Chocolate Cake [Egg less]Recipe/Chocolate Cake Recipe with step by step photos

Today I am going to share a cake which has a special place in every ones heart – it is none other than the Chocolate cake. Somehow my husband is not a great fan of Chocolate cake, so I try to skip baking chocolate cakes. But my little daughter just loves it, so this was a special cake I made for her. I have not done any icing; you can choose icing of your choice. One more important thing friends, I am relocating back to Chennai, so I will not be able to post regularly for few weeks. But will try to keep posting and visit your spaces whenever possible. For now let’s enjoy eggless chocolate cake.

Here’s how to make Chocolate Cake with step by step photos…

1/3 cup

Preheat the oven to 350 F/180 C. Line an eight inch cake pan with a parchment paper and keep it ready.

In a big bowl sift the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder.

Now add the caster sugar, salt to the same bowl and mix really well with a whisk for about 5 minutes to make a fluffy, soft and airy cake.

In another bowl mix melted butter, warm water, lemon juice, vanilla essence and mix really well.

Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and mix it with a wooden spatula. Now the cake mixture is ready.

Pour the cake mixture to the baking pan and bake it for about 20 – 25 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.

Delicious, soft and moist Chocolate Cake is ready to be enjoyed.
