Chocolate cake is my go-to comfort food.
And this eggless, dairy-free chocolate cake is made for almost everyone – from the vegetarians to the chocaholics.
The cake is moist, chocolatey and so very satisfying.
Eggless chocolate cake ingredients
For this recipe, I used:
- all purpose flour
- baking soda
- cocoa powder
- cinnamon powder
- vegetable oil
- citrus juice like lemon juice (although lime and orange will work well)
- essence like cocoa or vanilla
- chocolate chips (this is optional but adds nice bursts of chocolate within the cake)
That’s it for what I used.
How to make chocolate cake without eggs
Step 1: Before getting started, be sure to preheat the oven at 350°F.
Mix the batter
Step 2: Sift the flour and cocoa powder into a large bowl. Add the baking soda, cinnamon powder, sugar and salt and give everything a good mix.
Step 3: Next, add all of the wet ingredients to a separate bowl. Whisk the water, oil, lemon juice, and cocoa essence together.
Step 4: Combine the wet and dry ingredients together. Mix thoroughly until the batter is lump-free.
Step 5: Pour the batter into a buttered and floured cake pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Here I sprinkled in some chocolate chips on top.
Step 6: Remove from the heat and allow to cool down. You can also frost the cake or pour chocolate sauce over it after it has cooled.

Maybe some pecans or slivered almonds would be lovely in the cake 🙂
