An easy and delicious Eggless Chocolate Cake that will be perfect for coffee time.

Chocolate cake or chocolate gâteau is a cake flavored with melted chocolate, cocoa powder, or both.

Why is my chocolate cake not moist?

The ratio of wet to dry ingredients determines a cake’s moisture level. If there’s simply too much flour and not enough butter, a cake will taste dry. On the other hand, if there’s too much milk and not enough flour, a cake will taste too wet. Finding the right balance between wet and dry ingredients is key.


  • 1 cup cake flour.
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder.
  • 1 tsp baking soda.
  • 6 tbsp. cocoa powder.
  • 3/4 cup castor sugar.
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil.
  • 1/4 cup coffee (1x tsp coffee mixed in 1/4 x cup boiling water.)
  • 1/4 cup milk.
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt.
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract.
