Eggless Chocolate Cake

 Chocolate will be everyone's  favorite. Chocolate cake is made with chocolate / cocoa powder. Chocolate cake is a cake flavored with melted chocolate or cocoa powder .
 The history of chocolate cake goes back to 1764 , when Dr.James Baker discovered how to make chocolate by grinding  cocoa beans between massive circular millstones..
 I made this chocolate cake as egg-less . It tasted great and everyone in my family liked this cake.
Requirements :
All purpose flour – 1 ½ cup
Cocoa powder – 4 - 6 tbs
Butter / oil – 5 tbs
Powdered sugar – 1 cup
Milk – 1 cup
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Baking soda – 1 tsp
Fruit vinegar / lemon juice – 2 drops
For Icing :
Icing  sugar – 4 tbs
Lemon juice – 2 tsp

Method :
Sieve flour, cocoa powder , baking powder and baking soda twice.
Melt butter , add the powdered sugar and mix till frothy.
Add the flour mixture , vinegar and milk , mix gently for five minutes and in a single direction.
Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
Grease the baking tray with butter and dust with flour.
Pour the cake batter to the tray and bake for 20 – 30 minutes or till the knife inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Let the cake cool and reach the room temperature.
Icing :
Mix the icing sugar with the lemon juice and make into a paste.
Apply this icing on the cool cake.
Arrange the cherry on top.

Refrigerate the cake for 30 minutes and serve.
Eggless chocolate cake is ready to serve.

Notes :
Always mix the cake mixture in the same direction.
Adding vinegar activates the baking powder.
Always mix the flour mixture to the wet ingredients just before baking to get soft cake.
