Here is a wonderfully simple recipe for an eggless chocolate cake. It’s deliciously moist and very chocolaty.

Eggless Chocolate Cake

750ml (3cups) cake flour
500ml (2cups) sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
125ml (1/2 cup) cocoa powder
500ml hot water
190ml (3/4 cup) oil
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
4 tablespoons vinegar

125g butter
375ml icing sugar
15-30ml cocoa powder
a few drops vanilla essence

Preheat oven to 180C
Grease 2 x 23cm cake pans
Place the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Combine the rest of the ingredients and pour over dry ingredients.
Mix well and divide into pans.
Bake for +/- 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool in baking pans for 5 – 10 minutes.
Remove from baking pans and cool completely on wire rack.
Spread the top of one round with icing and sandwich together, spreading the rest of the icing around the sides and on top. Decorate as desired. Or top with whipped cream. Absolute delicious to enjoy plain without any adornment!!
