Celebration of chocolates (Part 3)

This is the last and concluding recipe of this chocolate cake series. The recipe I am sharing today is an Eggless Chocolate Coffee cake which is delightfully simple to make. This is a very moist and gooey cake. Chocolate and coffee together gives a coffee toffee flavour. I hope you all have liked these recipes as much as I have enjoyed baking them... happy baking!


Oil-3/4 cup
Milk-1/2 cup
Curd-1/2 cup
Cocoa powder-3/4 cup
Baking powder-1tsp
Baking soda-1/4 tsp
Roasted coffee powder-2 tsp
Vanilla essence-1tsp
Boiling water-1/2cup
Choco chips-a handful


1. Mix oil and sugar together. Add milk to this and continue to whisk.

2. Add curd to this and whisk till bubbles come out. Add vanilla essence to this mixture.

3. Add all the dry ingredients together like flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and add to the curd mixture.

4. Now add boiling water to the cocoa powder and ensure that there are no lumps. Add this to the cake mixture and mix well.

5. Mix the coffee powder with few drops of warm water and add that also to the above cake mix.

6. I threw in a handful of choco chips just to get that extra chocolaty flavour.

7. Preheat oven to 190-200 degree. Grease a 9 inch baking tin and pour the cake mixture into the tin. Bake for 30 -40 mins or till the skewer comes out clean.

8. Do not try to turn the cake over once you take it out from the oven until it has completely cooled down. This is a soft cake and it may break if you try to do so.

Hi Anasuya, It is ok if you dont want to put coffee. you can make this as a chocolate cake. The amt of cocoa powder will suffice. Just to make it more chocolaty you can put in few squares of any chocolate bar or choco chips. Since we are not using eggs in ths cake so we use only lil bit of baking soda.. dnt worry u wont even taste it whn the cake is baked..happy baking
