Eggless Chocolate Cake - Moist Chocolate Cake Recipe(No eggs no butter)

I googled and googled for a very basic chocolate cake recipe and there were soooo many....But my constraint was no eggs, butter and it should be very simple. Trust me, any beginner can try this and I guarantee it wud turn out perfect without any flaws. But the quantity and mixing need to be noted down very carefully as it may be turn sticky and not cooked inside if inaccurate.The taste is no lesser than a brownie and can be served as such or with a helping of choco / caramel sauce.

Moist Chocolate Cake(With no eggs & butter)
I've recommended this recipe to few friends, cousin they too tried & agreed with me about the taste. And finally it was certified by my niece, she liked it soo much, and when I heard that she took it to school daily till it got over I was on top of the world!! Am waiting for my lil one to taste it too.....though have given her few pinches of this cake, she was licking & didnt leave my fingers :)

Eggless Chocolate Cake Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 15 mins | Cooking Time : 45 mins | Makes : 9 squares
Recipe Category: Dessert | Recipe Cuisine: World

Dry Ingredients:

All purpose flour(Maida) - 1 and 1/2 cups (200 gms)
Cocoa powder - 3 tbsp
Baking soda - 1 tsp
Baking powder - 1/8 tsp (optional)
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Granulated Sugar - 3/4 cup (165 gms) [Increase it to 1 cup if you dont use choco chips]
Chocolate Chips - 2 tbsp

Wet Ingredients:

Water - 1 cup (250 ml)
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tbsp
Lemon juice / White Vinegar - 1 tbsp (I used lemon juice)
Oil - 1/4 cup (60 ml)
*I halved the recipe to bake it in my 4X4 inch square pan.

Method:

  1. Take water in a mixing bowl, add vanilla essence, sugar, lemon juice and oil. Mix well till sugar completely dissolves . Keep aside.Now take flour, baking soda, baking powder and coco powder and sift together twice atleast to make sure the flour, soda and baking powder and coco powder is evenly spread out.Then slowly add the the sifted flour mixture to the wet ingredients mixture may be in 2 parts.Moist Chocolate Cake - Step1
  2. Gently mix in one direction, break the lumps forming...gently mix it.The batter is runny like you see in the pic.Fold in choco chips and give a quick stir.Preheat oven to 180 deg C for 10mins.Grease the pan with butter, sprinkle maida tap it so that it spreads on all sides.Moist Chocolate Cake - Step2
  3. Pour the batter into the cake pan. Bake it at 180 deg C for 35-40mins check with a fork if a fork inserted comes out clean.Moist Chocolate Cake - Step3
  4. Make sure to cool atleast for 10-15 mins and then invert carefully and cut into pieces and enjoy.

My Notes:

  • When lemon juice reacts with baking soda it helps the cake to rise. The mixing and measurements matters the most for the perfect moist cake. Have updated the recipe again with measurements after 2-3 trials.
  • I added 1/8 tsp baking powder though the orginal recipe did not use it. So It is purely optional
  • Select the cake pan accordingly as the batter should be atleast half of the pan when you pour it. Also I've halved the measurements from the orginal recipe.
  • Using chocochips is purely optional but I recommend adding it. Also if you dont add chocochips increase sugar to 1 cup.

  14. Wow...cake really looks moist and soft.
    You're right abt whole wheat flour...it doesn't make our cake raise as AP flour does.

    ReplyDelete
  15. That moist and scrumptious cake looks wickedly good!

  16. Hi Shar
    First thing first : I love the look of your blog. Specially the image gallery( can you please tell me how to do it?). And your blog's header photos :-)
    Though I'm not an expert in baking but would love to share this bit of information with you that Using Wheat flour will alter the outcome of the finished product. I get the desired results when I bake it with cake flour. As cake flour is made from soft wheat flour.

    But your cake looks moist and delicious. Wonderful click as well.
    And congrats for your awards :-)

  40. Hi, I tried this with self raising flour but without the baking soda and powder. The taste was good but the cake didnt raise much. IS this beacuse the lack of baking powser? I didnt use it as the flour was "self-raising".. Please help :(

    ReplyDelete
  41. @Priti :Actually the cake doesnt double like normal cakes but still it will raise to a certain level as shown in the above pic.

    I havent used self raising flour even once so am not sure of the outcome....But then the orginal recipe doesnt even call for baking powder, it uses only baking soda So I think that might not be the problem.I doubt on the amount of BP and BS in the selfraising flour. So I suggest u to try it with normal APF, with given baking soda n baking powder measurement and see.

I went online and stumbled on this recipe! Followed it exactly, the only change I made was using gluten free flour mix as my kids and I are intolerant. It came out perfect, all the kids loved it! Nobody knew you could make such wonderful cake with no eggs. BRAVO! THANK you. Will be making it more!

  99. Hi sharmee,

    I can't believe that a cake without eggs can be so good. I normally don't eat chocolate cake. But due to my daughters allergy problem I had to make thiscake which was without eggs and without milk, best. I just wanted to ask, this cake was hard from top and little sticky from inside. Is this how it's supposed tobe. I had baked it for 30 minutes.

  127. Hey sharmi,

    I like all ur recipes and try them blindly.it comes out great. Today i tried moist chocolate cake. Guess what i didnt habe APF, so tried with our ashirvad wheat flour.it came out spongy, let me see if i can send u some pics. They were awesome in texture. Just that i didnt add a cup of sugar as u said for cake without choco chips, it was little tasteless. My kid likes cake with cocoa, so it was a great hit! If you like the whole wheat bread, then sure you will like them with whole wheat flour. I didnt get them hard at all!

    Thanks a lot for all ur recipes. Keep going , they r great.

  128. Hi, amazing cake. I want to try it but in a smaller quantity. My doubt is whether I must half all th ingredients or just a few main ones like th flour and oil

  136. This looks mouthwatering.....
    All Purpose Flour is not available in my area. So, can I use normal maida instead?

  137. @Sanjita : Yeah sure maida can be used...both are same only as far as I know :)

  138. Hey. Ive tried baking this cake for like a million time already. I personally love it but the rest of my family members didnt think so. I just love the way it tasted but they said it wasnt "fluffy" enough which i agree with. What could be wrong? The texture of the cake is kind of like i dont know how to say this well its kind of "jammed pack" together. Is it supposed to be like that? And i also use a round baking pan and i always get this volcano like rise with cracks running down the middle...pls help. Thanks.

  139. @Spencer : This cake is very moist so doesnt crack on top...not really sure what went wrong...The cake comes out soft and moist...

  142. Why do you use baking powder and baking soda? Can't we just use baking powder alone?

    ReplyDelete
  143. @Anamika : You can skip baking powder - I have mentioned it as an optional ingredient

  144. Hi,
    I tried the recipe. The cake is quite tasty but not moist, can you suggest what must have gone wrong. Thanks

    1. Not really sure what went wrong...the wet ingredients are more here and the batter is on the runny side and the cake comes out very moist...

  147. Cake looks good.. like the fact no eggs.. in the oven now can't wait to try it. Altered by adding baking powder.

  148. Hi sharmi. Tried this cake made a small change added 1tsp of instant coffee powder to 1 cup warm water. Tasted heavenly. I am a vegetarian n make only eggless cakes with curd or condensed milk n very cumbersome procedure. This is very simply n easy and cost effective.

  149. hi sharmi,

    can u update your cup size please....
    coz maida - 1+1/2 cups = 200 grms
    but sugar - 3/4 cup = 165 grms
    little confused here - generally we should use same cup for all ingredients right?
    please clarify....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Each ingredient weights differently so have the given the measures in cups and grams...You either follow cup or gm measures...it will be confusing if you compare both gm and cup measures

  157. sharmilee di
    i tried making the cake using half the measures you provided
    do i have to reduce the time or temperature of cooking as well?
    because when i cook the cake with half measurements , it becomes more on the crispier side
    so should i reduce the time?
    how much time did you cook when you halved the recipe?
    please help!!

    1. No I didnt reduce the temperature and gave a good 30mins for baking...

  163. Hey Sharmi.. I tried this today.. The cake turned out quite good, but there were 2 issues with it:

    1. I had cracks all over the top of the cake, this must be probably my oven.. I should try next time with lesser temperature.

    2. The texture of the cake looked lovely, but while tasting it was a bit sticky to the mouth. Any idea how this can be corrected?

    my cake tin is a big round one... So i doubled all your measurements to match that.. Rest was the same..

    i bought icing cone and made some decoration.. So the cake looked lovely.. We are big time fans of your mug cake.. My husband who generally doesn't like chocolate loves it :)

    ReplyDelete
  164. 1.One of the main reasons for the cake to crack is when the batter id dry.....
    2.The texture of the cake should be porous and more of cakey...it will not be sticky
    Do try it next time with exact temperature and measurements am sure you will get it perfect :)

  171. In your cups and spoon size, it is written 1 cup- 250 gm and in this recipe, u have written 1 and 1/2 cup (200gm). how come such mismatch??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Please check my "Cup & Spoon Measures" on the side bar....It says 250ml and not gms
      Each ingredient weights differently so you need to weight the cup measure in a kitchen scale to get it converted to grams and that what I have done...Hope this helps!

  172. Hi Sharmilee. I have not yet tried your cake receipe yet but I intend to. With my 3 trials of baking chocolate cake the two issues I have is 1. the cake is too dry and 2. the cake didnt come out of the baking plate :(. I guess the butter application was less in my 2nd trail. Now for the cake / pastry to be juicy what needs to be done. Could you please suggest. Thank you. Sushma

  173. Hi Sharmilee, I baked this cake yesterday. It came out very well. I like my desserts sweet so I was planning to increase the sugar to 1 cup with the chocolate chips. Also I'm in the US and i baked it at 350 for 30 minutes. It was done by then.

  174. Hi, If if want to halve the recipe, should i reduce the baking powder to 1/2 tsp?
