Eggless Chocolate Loaf Cake ( No Egg & No Butter)

Since I made the Pound Cake from scratch, there is delight in Abhi's School snack box. But after 2 batches of this  plain pound cake Abhi wanted some of his favorite to show up in his snack box, that is obviously Chocolate. So I was in search of very simple homemade chocolate cake recipes and come across this simple and hassle-free recipe on Martha's Cake Collections. And it happened to be the Egg Less and Butter Less version, you might be wondering about the Taste then, You don't believe how many compliments this cake got from my family and friends. I have already made 6 batches of this cake, because this is such a simple and quick recipe.

The texture of this beautiful cake is very spongy and the flavor is very rich and it's mildly sweet. It's heavenly when you serve one piece of this cake with plain vanilla scoop of ice-cream. The original recipe called for 1 cup water, I have replaced that with milk which added richness to texture and taste. If you want vegan version, then replace the milk with water in this recipe. I have tried different variations with this cake, with Semi Sweet Coca Powder, Extra Dark Coca Powder, Walnuts, raisins, and Almonds. So far the best i liked is using Extra Dark Coca Powder and Chopped Almonds spread on top the cake.  Here is the recipe, njoy!


Adapted from: Martha Stewart Recipes

All Purpose Flour - 1 1/2 cups
Sugar - 1 cup
Baking soda - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp (Kosher Salt)
Unsweetened Coca Powder - 3 Tbsp
Vegetable Oil - 1/3 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Vanilla Extract - 1 tsp
White Vinegar - 1 Tbsp

  1. Pre-heat the oven fro 350 F or 180 C. Butter the Bread Loaf pan generously or brush with oil or spray inside with the PAM oil.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients (except sugar)  APF, Baking Soda, Salt , Coca Powder in a medium bowl and keep it aside.
  3. Take another medium  bowl, add Vegetable Oil, Milk, Vanilla Extract and Vinegar and mix it with a whisk until everything combines. Now add the Sugar to this bowl and whisk it more until sugar dissolves. 
  4. Now sieve the dry flour mixture into a plate. add this flour mixture to the bowl in 3 batches while mixing it gently with wide spoon or spatula. 
  5. Pour this mixture into the prepared Loaf Pan. Bake it for 50 min. ( based on your oven temperature keep watching after 45 min, to avoid any burns on the top).
  6. Switch off the oven and take it out from the oven and let it cool for 5 min, invert the pan into a wide plate by tapping on all sides, your perfect chocolate loaf cake will be settled on to the plate. Give 10 min for cooling, then slice into 1 inch loafs and store them in air-tight container.  

It stores fresh up to 1 week outside. Of course it's hard to last that long in our house with full of chocolate lovers.

After 40 to 45 min, your kitchen will be filled with chocolaty aroma, that you can't miss to come to oven to watch it. At my home the aroma attracts my kids and Vj towards the oven and they will be waiting when it will be out and when they can get a piece of warm fresh homemade chocolate loaf cake....

  • Kosher Salt is less saltier than normal salt, these days I am adding Kosher Salt wherever the recipe is called for salt, I have noticed the texture and taste is good with Kosher Salt addition. 

Have a Great Sunday!

  13. Cakes looks so moist and yummy! Pass me some! :)

  14. Can i bake it in a round cake mould greasing with sunflower oil ?

    1. Yes you can use Round cake mould 8 in or 9 in then bake only around 30 to 35 minutes.
      Sunflower oil should be okay for greasing. If you use round cake mold, make sure you apply enough oil for the easy invert at the end.

  15. Can I replace APF with wheatflour. If yes will the bake time change

  16. I made this, it was very tasty and moist! Sadly did not turn out for me and fell apart :( However it tasted good.
