Eggless Chocolate Cake and Happy Halloween !!

This is my son's first Halloween here and he is all excited today. His favourite cartoon is Caillou, so he wants to do everything what Caillou does. My son has picked up lots of things about Halloween from this cartoon, maybe now he knows more than us ;). We were amazed when our 2 year old son picked up a small pumpkin from grocery store during shopping and he said "lets make eyes, nose and mouth for it just like how Caillou did ". Then my hubby decided we should carve a pumpkin this time. My little one was all excited when his father did the carving and he himself chose the pattern for the pumpkin.

Today's recipe is Eggless Chocolate cake. I tried a chocolate cake few days back, which was my own recipe, but the outcome wasn't really good. So this time I wanted to try out a perfect eggless chocolate cake, hence I followed the exact recipe from Rak's Kitchen. The cake turned out great, so soft and moist. The best part was that its no eggs, no butter cake. I must say it turned out a perfect one and was so simple to make. My son didn't allow me to take better clicks as he was switching off the lights to see the lighted pumpkin in the dark :)

View the original recipe here at Rak's Kitchen.



What you need?

1.5 cups All Purpose flour 
3 tbsp Cocoa powder
1 tsp Baking soda
A pinch Salt

1 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Oil
1 cup Water
1 tbsp Lemon Juice or Vinegar
1/2 tbsp Vanilla essence

2 tbsp sliced Almonds (optional)


How to prepare?

Combine flour, cocoa powder and baking soda well. Sieve this for even mixing and keep aside. Dissolve sugar in water, add salt, oil, lemon juice and vanilla essence to this . Mix well. Add the flour to the wet mixture and whisk well to get a smooth watery batter.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a pan with oil, dust it slightly with flour. Pour the batter to the pan. Throw some almonds on the top.

Bake it for 35-40 minutes. Insert a toothpick or knife to see if it comes out clean. Cool it for 10-15 minutes and then invert the cake. Once cooled completely, cut into pieces.

Enjoy the delicious, moist and soft chocolate cake !!
