Simple chocolate cake

This is a very basic chocolate cake and can be made in 30 minutes.

  • All purpose flour - 2/3 cup 
  • Cocoa powder - 1/3 cup
  • Eggs- 2
  • Oil - 3/4 cup
  • Sugar - 1 cup (powdered)
  • baking powder- 1 tsp
  • Vanilla essence - 1 tsp

  • Grease a cake pan with butter 
  • Sift all purpose flour, cocoa and baking powder thrice.
  • In a bowl break the eggs and beat, pour in oil and stir well
  • Add powdered sugar and vanilla essence. Blend well
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and fold in with a wooden spoon.
  • If the batter is thick you can add a little milk. 

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Adjust your oven accordingly.
For a change I baked this cake in a vessel made of aluminium foil (the ones you use for packing food) and so the shape. And also used the parchment paper so the cake won't stick to the bottom.
