Egg-less chocolate cake

Hi!!

So here we are putting forth our first post and since we are both “Chocoholics”, what can be better than our first post being about our all time favorite chocolate cake 😉

This cake is quite famous among our family and friends. This recipe is full-proof. The cake is light, fluffy, moist and an absolute chocolate delight.

Happy baking!! 🙂

Combine the dry and wet ingredients and add drinking soda little by little. Whisk till smooth batter has been formed. Pour the batter in the lined tin and keep in oven at 180⁰ C/ 360⁰ F for 25-30 min – until it’s done. (Check if the cake is completely baked by inserting a skewer, if it comes out clean- cake is baked completely.)
