This cake is a magic of Vinegar, Oil and Baking soda. Believe it or not... it doesn't taste vinegar at all. It produces a surprisingly moist and delicious cake.
The absolute best, richest, and easiest one-bowl chocolate cake recipe ever! The vinegar reacts with the soda, so there is no vinegary taste leftover as long as you use the right amounts of vinegar and baking soda.
This all-purpose cake is made without butter or eggs.
Step 1: Ingredients
Ingredients for Cake: (3/4 Kg) - I made 1/3 quantity
3 cups (750 mL) all-purpose flour
2 cups (500 mL) granulated sugar
2/3 cup (150 mL) cocoa powder
2 tsp (10 mL) baking soda
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
2 cups (500 mL) cold coffee or water
1 cup (250 mL) vegetable oil
2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla
3 tbsp (45 mL) cider vinegar
Chocolate Frosting: (1.5 Cups)
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp milk
1/6 cup Cocoa powder
2 Tbsp cornflour syrup
1 Tsp vanilla extract
1 Tsp Butter
Step 2: Coffee
Prepare coffee. Add coffee powder to water and bring it to boil.
Strain the coffee. Now cool the coffee till it is cold.
Step 3: Dry Ingredients
In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
Mix them together till well combined.
Step 4: Wet Ingredients
Whisk in coffee, oil and vanilla. Stir in vinegar.
Step 5: Wet and Dry
Pour the wet ingredients onto the dry ingredients little by little.
Whisk them together till well combined. The batter should be real smooth and semi flowing texture.
The vinegar begins to react and small bubbles begins to appear.
Step 6: Bake
Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius for 10 minutes.
Grease the pan and pour the cake batter into it.
Bake the cake for 20-25 minutes at 180 degree Celsius.
Step 7: Chocolate Frosting
You can use any frosting you like.
Heat milk, butter and cornflour together.
Add cocoa powder, vanilla essence, sugar and chocolate. Heat at medium flame.
Keep stirring till it starts getting thick.
Stir till there are no lumps.
Let it cool to room temperature.
Step 8: Frost
Once the cake is done and cooled remove it from the pan. There you have super moist and spongy cake.
The vinegar replaces the egg and gives the spongy texture.
Now add the chocolate frosting over the cake. There you go super moist vinegar chocolate cake.
