Eggless Chocolate Cake

This cake is so moist it doesn't need frosting. Simply sprinkle powdered sugar over the top.

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour / maida
  • 1/4 cup dutch-processed cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • sifted powdered sugar for dusting cake


  •  Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9"x9" square baking dish or a circular dish with Pam and lightly flour.
  • In a large bowl, mix together  the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt and baking soda.
  • Using a spoon, make three wells in the dry ingredients. Pour oil into one, vinegar into another and vanilla into the third.
  • Slowly pour water over all. Blend using hand mixer on low speed until thoroughly combined. Batter will be thin. 
  • Pour batter into pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • Insert a toothpick to ensure cake is baked properly. Cool on a wire rack.
  • Dust top of the cake with powdered sugar. Cut and serve warm or at room temperature.
