Eggless butterless cake recipe

So today I ran out of eggs and butter was in the freezer so decided to make an eggless butterless cake. Googled it. Cake was tasty but came out dense and v moist. Like not quite a cake not quite a brownie. I realised that it would make a terrific dessert. Add coffee to the mixture. Or throw chocolate syrup or melted choc over or custard or coconut etc.. Or all of the abv. But we still enjoying it right now with tea. Iced with butter icing like a normal cake. So u cud just do that. Lolits a v easy recipe so Worth a try wen ur lazy.

Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook time: 35 mins | Makes: 12 pieces as shown in picture


Plainflour/All purpose flour/Maida 1& 1/2 cups Coco powder(I used Hershey's) 3 tblsp Sugar 1 cup Oil (I used sunflower oil) 1/4 cup Baking Soda 1 tsp Lemon juice/Vinegar 1 tblsp Water 1 cup Salt 1/4 tsp Vanilla essence 1/2 tblsp


Pre heat the oven to 180o C.Mix the plain flour,coco powder and baking soda and sieve them to ensure even mixing.Keep aside.Mix water,sugar,salt and make sure the sugar gets dissolved and then add lemon juice/vineger,oil and vanilla essence and mix well.Add the sifted flour and mix well.Grease a baking pan with oil and dust with some flour,then pour the batter to it. (the batter will be watery)Bake for 35 – 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out dry. Mine got baked at 35 minutes.After done,cool down the cake for 10-15 minutes and then invert in a wire rack,let it get cooled completely and then cut into pieces.When I tried inverting the cake immediately last time I had some broken pieces,so this time I waited for some time and then invered the cake in wire rack..Dont let it cool down for more than 15 minutes.Cake is ready for the Bake sale!!I kept the pieces in the muffin liners and arranged it as below for the sale..


If you are a beginner like me,donot experiment with the measures and ingredients,just follow it right and you will always get it right. Experiment with your own risk.Baking powder is not equivalent to baking soda,so donot replace it.
