Eggless Honey Chocolate Cake

Week 1 Day 2 of BM #62 - 

The cake I am posting today was originally the one I planned for Srivalli's Virtual Birthday Party. Incidentally I planned to take this cake for an impromptu birthday celebration. 

My older one baked it for me and all went well until it was time to pack it for the party. That was when the cake cracked in the middle because of careless handling by me :(. So I just sliced the cake into small slices and carried it to the party.

Though the taste of the cake was awesome, I was personally disappointed that I couldn't take the cake as is to the party. But my friends were so nice that they refused to dampen my spirits and made sure to uplift my mood! 

So the next time I bake this cake, I might cake in a square of a circular pan to avoid this kind of accidents.

All Purpose Flour/Maida  1 1/2 cups
Cocoa powder 3 tsp
Sugar 1 cup (I used Brown Sugar)
Baking powder 1 1/4 tsp
Baking soda 1/2 tsp
Salt a pinch

The cake can be topped with chocolate chips which I omitted.

Eggless Honey Chocolate Cake

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Blend Olive oil, Yogurt, milk, honey and vanilla essence (if using) and gently pour into the flour mixture. Mix gently to make a thick batter.

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Grease a 13 X 7 baking tin and pour the batter.

Bake for about 25-30 min and check to see if the cake is done. [The original recipe calls for less baking time].

Remove and invert the cake upon cooling. Slice and enjoy!
