Basic Eggless Chocolate Cake

I have used a well known eggless chocolate cake recipe for years but was never quite content with the taste. It had a bit of an aftertaste so I just had to tweak it! I have used it in many birthday cakes in a variety of requested themes.

Here is the recipe:

Basic Chocolate Cake

Combine Dry Ingredients:
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa (if you want to bump up the chocolate add an extra 1/4 cup cocoa)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Mix and make a well. In the well add:

3/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp vinegar
1 cup water
1 cup milk*

Mix really well with a mixer. Bake in a funnel or 9 by 13 pan at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes.

*Note: If you want to make this dairy-free, use all water instead of milk.

Here are some more photos of birthday cakes I have made using this recipe…….

    How did you make the doll cake. Did you bake multiple round cakes and ice together? And use a round Pyrex cake for the curved part of the dress?

    1. I used a round Pyrex oven safe bowl to bake the cake in. It does take longer to bake that way though to get the center baked through. Good luck!

    Whats up are using WordPress for your blog platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you need any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    1. No you do not need any html coding knowledge. It’s pretty easy to use. Good luck!

    can I substitute oil with butter?

    1. It is a little tricky to substitute for butter entirely in an eggless cake recipe. You can at least substitute half of it. If you do subtitle it all, you will need another binder in the recipe like applesauce or cornstarch.
