Khushi's Eggless Chocolate Cake

You never know where and how you find a good recipe. In this case, my niece Khushi wrote this eggless chocolate cake recipe for me on her notebook paper with pencil many many years ago - she was barely 6-7 years old at that time. I'm pretty sure she has long forgotten about it, but I still have that little piece of paper. Here it goes.

Bake time: 20-25 minutes
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Serves: 6-8 persons

Maida/ All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cup
Sugar (powdered) - 1 cup 
Cocoa - 2 tbsp
Butter (softened) - 6 tbsp
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Plain yogurt - 1/2 cup (or 2 eggs)
Milk - 3/4 cup


  • Preheat oven at 375 F. Grease and flour a 9" pan or a tube pan.
  • Sift all dried ingredients together.
  • Mix the wet ingredients first, and add the dried ones gradually, till smooth batter.  
  • Pour in a greased and floured pan.
  • Bake at 375F in a preheated oven for 20 - 25 mins, till toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  • Let it cool completely before icing/ consuming. 
Tips - I added a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of instant coffee. Once cooled, I drizzled a bit of coke/ pepsi on the cake, to keep it moist for longer. Its optional though.
