Eggless Chocolate Cake Recipe | Easy to do Moist Cake without Oven | with step by step photos and video. A cake that truly tastes of chocolate without baking powder. Most of the moistness comes from the egg yolk and egg white used to make it, but this recipe is made without egg, and yet has almost the same moistness. An ideal cake or dessert recipe which can be served used as a base cake for any celebration.


To make this delicious chocolate cake at home, you only need a few simple ingredients. I use maida to make this cake. For a healthier option you can use wheat or raagi flour also. I recommend using castor sugar instead of granulated sugar because granulated sugar does not melt completely in the oven. For this eggless cake, you also need vegetable oil. You can also use oilve oil. Do not use any strong oil like mustard oil or peanut oil. If you want to make this cake with butter, you can replace oil with equal quantity of softened butter. As simple as that! This is truly a very easy to bake chocolate cake. Using a good quality cocoa powder is very important. Any good dark cocoa powder will do.

Eggless Chocolate Cake Recipe


  • Before making this eggless chocolate cake, make sure you prepare your baking tin with parchment paper. If you don’t have parchment paper, you can brush the pan with melted butter/ oil and dust off some flour.
  • Make sure all your ingredients, including milk, are at room temperature. This is important because room temperature ingredients emulsify better.
  • While combining dry and wet ingredients, be sure to not over-mix. By over-mixing, you will knock out all the air and land up with a dense cake. Simply use an offset spatula and gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  • Instead of adding vinegar to the milk you can use curd or buttermilk also
