Eggless Butterless Chocolate Cake (Garnished with fresh Berries)

Today's recipe is filled with chocolaty gudness and this was the surprise cake i made for my H for his b'day :) .. He loved this cake so much as it was " Eggless butterless" and above all i decorated them with fresh fruits  made them look more inviting. H was so impressed and loved this surprise cake . This is an delicious and simple eggless and butterless cake which was so so soft and moist . This cake is sure  an yummy and tasty delight prefect for b'day's as people now days our so diet conscious. This will make them eat 2 pieces instead of one as they are butter less  :) Lets Move on to the recipe ..


All-purpose flour / maida - 2 cups
Sugar - 3/4 cups (1 cup if you are not using frosting)
Cocoa powder - 1/2 cup  (you can decrease the quantity if you want)
Vegetable oil/ Olive oil  - 1/2 cup (i used cooking olive oil)
Water - 1 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup  (at room temperature)
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice - 1 tsp
Vanilla essence / extract - 1 tsp
Salt - a pinch

  •  Pre-heat the oven at 350 F (180 C )
  • Grease a cake pan with some butter or ghee and dust some flour in the pan . This works best and avoids sticking of cake in the pan.
  •  In a large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  •  Add sugar and mix together. 
  •  Next, add oil, water, milk and vanilla and mix thoroughly, Mixing the batter in one direction. 
  • At last mix in lemon juice and mix till they are combined . Do not over mix them.
  •  Pour into greased cake pan and bake in a pre-heated oven for about 45 mins or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. 
  • Cool them completely on a wire rack and frost them with butter cream frosting 
  • I decorated my cake with fresh strawberries, rasberries and sprinklers :). I also drizzled some chocolate sauce on each slice while serving.


  • You can decorate these cake as you wish i decorated mine with berries.
  • You can also use this cake vegan by adding almond milk or soy milk instead of whole milk.
  • I found that making cakes with oil makes them stay longer than 1 one day .
  • Store the cake in an air tight container you an refrigerator or keep them at room temperature . It tastes fresh the next day too.
  • After transferring the batter in the cake pan do not let is stand bake them ASAP.
