Eggless Vanilla Chocolate Cake

Can’t believe just a handful of days to go and my life is going to be busier and change for the better with my new bundle of joy! Added to this joy, the weather is certainly like winter. Just a week ago I had experienced such cold rainy days and now its warmer days with sun beautifully shining through the sky. I could continue my walks before my final due date with my 3 yr old in his bike up to the park. I must say, I am enjoying these last few days of pregnancy although I get tired as evening approaches. I have enough enthusiasm and energy that I decided to bake a cake and treat myself before I will be tied up and have restrictions in my diet. Yes, in Indian culture we do follow some diet restrictions once the baby is born for a certain period. Nevertheless, I appreciate all those cultural significance and customs that has been handed over by generations. This recipe is a simple twist to any regular white cake but its gives such a pizazz.

Eggless Vanilla Chocolate Ready


Recipe:
1&1/2 cup flour

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a small baking pan (9 x 12) with oil or Baking spray such as PAM. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix all the wet ingredients. Combine wet and dry ingredients, stirring together until well combined. Remove about 1/4th portion of the mixture and add about 1 tbsp of cocoa powder and mix well. Add more if needed. Pour 1/2 of the non-cocoa mixture in the baking pan, followed by carefully pouring the cocoa mixture, then again the non-cocoa mixture. Bake in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 – 35 minutes or until the center of the cake when pricked with a tooth pick comes out clean. Remove from oven and let it cool for about 30 minutes before slicing. Enjoy it as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

TIP:
If you make a bigger batch, you can have more alternating layers of white and chocolate cake which will be more prettier.

      Sorry to hear that the cake did not turn well. If you see other peoples comment the recipe seems fine . So my only guess is your baking soda / powder or vinegar might not be doing the job since those are the ingredients that helps in fluffy raised cake. Could you please check those? In case they are expired etc let me know else I will try to send you personal email with yeast if possible. I hope this helps.
