Simple Chocolate Cake without Eggs and Dairy

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
  • sugar
  • salt
  • water
  • 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.

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.
