Eggless Chocolate Cake


I’ve been planning a Special Birthday Cake for a while.  There’s nothing fancy about it, it just doesn’t have eggs!  I know Egg-less Cakes seem to be pretty common and nothing new I’m bringing to the market, but this is new for me. I’ve had flour-less cake, not egg-less. 


The only reason this Birthday Cake is Egg-less is because the Birthday Girl is Vegetarian on Tuesdays (it’s a religious thing) and her birthday was obviously falling on a Tuesday. She was great about it and told me to get the cake the next day so I’d have more options. I obviously took it as a challenge to try and make ,what for me was an anomaly.  
I didn’t want to complicate things so I kept is simple. One layer Egg-Less Chocolate Cake. Birthday Cakes should be 2 layers at least, but I wasn’t willing to take a risk this time and have more of a bad thing coming out of the oven. So I decided, no fancy birthday cake, just make sure the damn thing works out and then jazz it up.  The only Jazzing up I did was adding Lindt Chocolate Balls to it. 
It was a bit forceful, I agree 😛 BUT…the cake turned out just fine. It was soft, moist and just bordering on dense. I topped it with the Chocolate Butter cream Frosting, it was a happy ending! 
1 1/4 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup warm water

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180C and line an 8×8 square pan, you can also use an 8″ round pan if you like
  2. Mix the dry ingredients to combine and in a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients
  3. Combine the 2 ingredients adding little flour at a time, to be completed in 3 batches
  4. Pour batter into tin and bake for 30-40mins, until skewer comes out clean
  5. Flip the cake upside down so the flat side is up and frost with Chocolate Buttercream frosting
  6. Top with Lindt, let it chill for a few hours and then serve

Mix the wet ingredients and combine with flour, adding flour a little at a time, in 3 batches
