- Mix 1 ½ cups flour, ¼ cup cocoa powder, ½ tsp salt and 1 tsp baking soda. Sieve the flour mix at least twice to aerate the flour. This makes the cake light..
- If using wheat flour then sieve four times.Add 1 cup sugar and mix it well. I use fine sugar..
- If you are using coarse one then you can also dissolve it in 1 cup water.
- Make a well (space) in the center. Pour 1 cup water, 1/3 cup oil or melted butter, 1 tbsp vanilla extract and 1 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar..
- Gently begin to mix well from the liquid ingredients in the center. Mix just until the flour is combined well with the wet ingredients. Do not over mix..
- The batter will be runny. Pour it to the cake pan.Knock it a few times against the kitchen counter to release air bubbles..
- Bake for 25 to 28 mins. Check after 23 mins. To check if it is completely baked, insert a skewer in the center of the cake and check. It must come out clean. Keep the cake pan on a wire rack and allow it to cool down for 8 to 10 mins in the pan..
- Invert eggless chocolate cake gently on a wire rack. Allow it to cool completely. You can frost the cake if you like or just sprinkle some powdered sugar.This eggless chocolate cake tastes best the next day..
- Ensure the butter is soft yet cold. When you press down the block of butter, it must dent easily yet hold shape without melting..
- Add butter to a large bowl and beat it until soft and fluffy. You can use a hand mixer or just a whisk. Place a sieve over the butter bowl. Add powdered sugar to the sieve. Sieve it well..
- Pour vanilla and 2 tbsps milk or cream. Mix them up lightly. Then whisk or beat until everything turns smooth fluffy and light. It must be of spreadable consistency..
- If it is too thick, then add another half to 1 tbsp milk or cream. Beat well until it reaches a good consistency.Do not over beat else the butter begins to melt. If needed you can keep it in the fridge for a while..
- Spread a tbsp of frosting on your cake stand. Place 4 – 2 by 8 inch parchment paper strips across the four sides of the cake stand..
- Place the cake over these papers with the frosting beneath the cake. Scoop off a good amount of frosting to the cake. Begin to spread from the center and then towards the sides..
