Simple Yummy Chocolate Cake - Eggless and low fat

This cake I made for my daughter's friend. It was his birthday and she wanted to give him a surprise. But as usual she tells me late at night that she wanted me to bake a cake. She was leaving the house next day in the morning at 10am. So I baked this cake early in the morning, but forgot to take pics. A little batter I put in a rectangle tin for us to taste. So you can see only the slices. This cake is very easy to make. If you keep all the ingredients ready and preheat the oven the cake is ready in total 45 minutes. The result is light, somewhat like a cake brownie.

My daughter said that they all loved this cake and finished it in a jiffy. She too did not get a chance to click a photograph.


3/4 Cup Cocoa powder
1. 3/4 Cup All-purpose flour
1 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Baking soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Cup  Butter -
melted and cooled
1 Cup Buttermilk - low fat
2 Teaspoons Vanilla essence


Preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Oil a 9-inch, round cake pan and line it with parchment paper. Flour the pan, tap out the excess flour.

Stir together the cocoa, flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and sift it. Keep aside.
Whisk together the buttermilk, butter, and vanilla. Stir into the dry ingredients until all is moistened and mixed well.

Pour into the prepared cake pan, spreading the thick batter out to the edge. Tap the pan on your counter to even it out.

Bake for about 30 minutes, until the cake has risen and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool for 5 to 10 minutes before unmolding.
