  • 230 gms All Purpose Flour / Maida
  • 85 gms Dark Chocolate Compound
  • 2 tsp Instant Coffee Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 100 gms Butter unsalted
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 400 gms Condensed Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1 tsp White Vinegar


How to make Eggless Chocolate Cake Without Cocoa Powder and Baking Powder

  • In a wide bowl take the butter and cream well. Next, add the condensed milk and continue beating till it is creamy.
  • Take the chocolate and melt in the microwave for 30 secs until it melts and add to the condensed milk.
  • Continue creaming until mixed well.
  • Now, add the instant coffee powder. You can mix 2 tbsp of hot water to the instant coffee powder and melt well.
  • Add vanilla essence and beat to combine.
  • Sift the flour a couple of times and keep it aside.
  • Now, add the flour in three batches alternating with milk to the condensed milk bowl.
  • Repeat until you complete both milk and flour. Beat until combined.
  • Preheat the oven to 185 C. Grease a 9 inch baking round tray and line it with a parchment paper.
  • To the mixing bowl, finally, add the Baking Soda and vinegar and gently fold in using a spatula.
  • Immediately transfer to the lined baking tin and tap it down so that it settles well.
  • Bake at 185 C for 35 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick / sharp knife inserted comes out clean.
  • Loosen the sides of the cake from the tin using a knife.
  • Flip it on to a wire rack and remove tin and paper.
  • You can frost it with Dark Chocolate Ganache or wrap it with cling film to use it later.


  1. I used about 85 gms of cooking chocolate, with 20 gms of milk chocolate and rest dark cooking chocolate.
  2. We can use about 100 gms of cooking chocolate.
  3. I added the instant coffee powder directly, the coffee powder will mix well if you melt with water.
  4. This cake was originally made with 1 tsp of Baking Powder, 1/2 tsp of Baking Soda.
  5. I replaced the baking powder with an extra 1/2 tsp of soda and a tsp of vinegar.
  6. If you don't have vinegar, you can use lemon juice in the recipe.
