Eggless Chocolate Cake

My hubby completed his 10 years in TCS this October 29th and when I saw him narrating his happiness and proud feelings about his successful years, my mind triggered to give him a surprise. This was the cake I baked for him. Eggless and Butterless so that he can have slices without any hitches. For the man who served ethically in his work - this was a deserved surprise.

All Purpose Flour - 1-3/4 cups
Cocoa Powder - 3-1/2 Tablespoon
Baking Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Baking Soda - 1/2 teaspoon
Sugar - 1 cup + 1 tablespoon
Instant Coffee Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Vanilla Essence - 1/2 teaspoon
Olive Oil - 3 tablespoon
Salt - 1/4 teaspoon
Yogurt - 1 tablespoon
Lemon Juice - 1 teaspoon
Whole milk - 1-1/4 cup
(Use all Ingredients in Room temperature)

  • Mix and Sleeve All purpose flour, Cocoa Powder, Baking Powder, Baking Soda and Salt together into a bowl. In another bowl whisk Sugar and Milk until sugar dissolves completely.

  • In a small bowl beat Yogurt, Coffee powder, Vanilla Essence, Lemon juice together(until smooth and fluffy). Fold in sleeved flour little by little to Sugar Milk mix. 

  • Add Yogurt mix and Olive oil, Fold in to get everything together. Pour the batter to a Greased and Flour Dusted Cake pan (I used 8x2 inch round pan). 

  • Pre - heat oven at 350'F for 10 minutes then place the baking pan in the middle rack of your oven. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a Tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove and let it sit in the cake pan for 10 minutes. Move the cake to Cooling rack to cool down completely. I poured melted chocolate on top and served them.
