Vegan Double Chocolate Cake


          Double Chocolate Cake, well, as the name suggests, it contains double the amount of chocolate, compared to the regular chocolate cake, one in the form of cocoa powder and the other in the form of chopped chocolate chunks. For this vegan recipe, I have used regular coke as a replacement for egg. I had noted down this recipe, using coke, for a regular vanilla cake so many years back from a newspaper, but got a chance to try it only now. I had made some changes and it turned out very well, the cake was so moist and light and tasted so good with the chocolate chunks here and there, I would say, a ' Double Delight ' for all chocolate lovers..

Need To Have

  • All Purpose Flour/ Maida - 1 cup
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder - 1/2 cup
  • Chocolate Chunks - 1/4 cup
  • Oil - 1/4 cup
  • Regular Coke - 1 cup
  • Powdered Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Baking Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Baking Soda - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Vanilla Extract - 1/2 teaspoon

Method


          Sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda. In a mixing bowl, add the oil, sugar, vanilla extract and half the coke and mix well. To this add the sifted flour and mix it well, without any lumps.


          To this add the chocolate chunks and the remaining coke and mix it. Pour it into a greased 8" square pan and bake it for 25 minutes at 180 C. Remove, cool for 3 to 5 minutes, remove it from the pan and let it cool completely before slicing.


Note
The sugar I have used was correct for us and the chocolate chunks that I have used is 60% cocoa, so if you using an even darker chocolate, then increase the sugar.
Use a coke can or coke bottle immediately after you open it, that fizz is very important to this cake.

  1. My sister uses regular soda to make any cake or bread. She loves using it over eggs. Coke is new to me though. Nice idea. Will tell her about it.
