3 cups sifted all purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
3 T. cocoa
2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
sift all together
make 3 wells in dry ingredients then place in each well following ingredients
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 T. white vinegar
2 t. pure vanilla extract
2 cups cold water
Mix well all ingredients till smooth and no lumps
Pour into ungreased 8×13″ pan
into preheated oven of 350* for 35-40 minutes.
If you would like a topping here is a delicious chocolate frosting:
In small sauce pan for cooking, mix:
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 stick butter
Bring to a boil over med-high heat for one minute then remove from heat and put
1 t. pure vanilla extract.
Beat for one minute and pour over cooled cake.
I like to poke a few holes in the cake with fork so that the frosting will go deep into some parts of cake.Delicious, mistake-free cake. Sounds very complicated but you will find this a family favorite and the praises will be abundant from family and friends. Serve with cool water for drinking as water is the perfect compliment to chocolate. Many blessings to you and your loved ones.

I’m a huge fan of you guys, for starters!

how to make veg cake without microveve oven
I have tried twice, first I did the choc one, and the second time i tried a vanilla one. The taste was great. However I could not get it from the pan as a whole as in both cases it stuck to the pan even though I have buttered the pan.
Can you please advise how to prevent it from sticking.
Also, I would appreciate if you could advise if I can use baking powder instead of baking soda.
I need to prepare a bithday cake on the 15th and I would be more than grateful if you could please give me a reply.
I was disappointed for the first time. The cake was Okay but it was a little rubbery and less moist..is it the way it is when compared to cake with eggs?
To someone with discriminate tastes, the texture will be a little different (or less moist) than a cake with eggs. However, the cake has never been “rubbery”.
I added 1/2 cup more wheat flour (used for chapati, I used to make the cake), used 4 oz Hot cocoa powder instead of unsweetened cocoa powder. It turned out great soft and yummy like with eggs. But outer crust turned out hard after cooling. Dont forget to reduce sugar by 1/2 cup from the given recipe. I made muffins by the way. Hope this helps.
Once the oven has reached the 350 degree temperature, you can put the cake in and allow it to cook at the same temp. for 35-40 minutes.
Could u please tell me how much time we should take to preheat the oven or before putting the cake in the oven
We have a video on this cake:
The vinegar is the acid that reacts with the baking soda to make the cake rise without the use of eggs. It is an important ingredient. We have not tried it with any substitute, but are guessing that lemon juice may work. The only difference will be a citrusy flavor in the cake.
This cake looks really exciting …
but can we make it without the vinegar …
if not , can any alternative be used …
Why do we have to use vinegar … pls tell me .
Hi! this cake is awesome.can u give some ideas for decorating the cake. and if we use fruit and bake it then won’t the fruits lose their flavour.?
I’m sorry, but we haven’t tried the eggless cake with pineapple. I am guessing you could add drained, crushed pineapple or cubed pineapple to the batter. For a light and creamy frosting which doesn’t melt, try this:
* Cream Cheese – 8oz box at room temperature
* Butter – 1/4 cup, softened
* Confectioners sugar (powdered sugar) – 2 cups
* Lemon juice – 1 Tbsp
* Vanilla Extract – 1 tsp
Cream together the cream cheese and butter. Add in Lemon juice and Vanilla extract. Slowly add in the sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
hey your cooking site is just wonderful whtever i tried turned to be grt thanx dear please can u upload a video of how to bake a fruit cake or pineapplecake along with thhe frosting the same frosting which market cakes have the creamy light one which doesn’t melt plz plz
The reciepe is interesting… Just a request is there a microwave – able alternative…?
I dont know abt microwave but if you have a sandwich maker, it turns out just like in the oven. Instant ! Takes abt 10 to 15 mins though. Dont fill it to the brim. It will over flow.
