Eggless Chocolate Cake

After the disastrous trial of making marble cake I had decided to take a vacation from baking. Last Saturday my MIL got up in the afternoon and said "Shree eenadroo cake maadde - chocolate tinbekuntha anista ide".. which was very quickly endorsed by Anagha :)

This is what I made

You need
All purpose flour (Maida) - 0.75 cup
Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp (unsweetened)
Sugar - 0.5 cup (powdered)
Baking Soda - 0.5 tsp
Baking powder - 0.25 tsp
Salt - 0.25 tsp
Oil- 3 tbsp
Curd - 0.25 cup
Warm Water - 0.5 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Instant coffee powder - 2 tsp
Chocolate chips - 0.25 cup (optional :) )

Pre-heat oven to 180C/350F. Line and grease a pan and set aside (I used a 6" round pan)
Sift the flour, Baking powder, Baking soda, salt, sugar, coffee powder and cocoa powder
In a large bowl mix the oil, curd, water and vanilla essence
Add the dry mixture to the wet and mix with a balloon whisk until just combines
Add in the chocolate chips and fold in
Pour the batter into the greased pan and bake for 40 mins or till done (tooth pick test)
Cool on a wire rack
