Diet Chocolate Cake - Eggless

After seeing my previous chocolate cake.... loads of people told me that it is for slim people... who want to put on weight.... What about an eggless cake which is low on calories as well. I made it today.. It tastes good... but is very soft compared to other one;) I was not able to click good pics of these.. :(


All Purpose Flour - 1.5 cups
Thick Yoghurt (Fat free)  - 1 cup
Sugar Free Natura - 2 cups (Powdered)
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1 tsp
Vanilla extract - 1.5 tsp
Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp
Oil (Cholestrol Free) - 1/2 cup
Salt - a pinch
Skimmed Milk - approx 1/2 cup (if required)

  1. Pre-heat oven for 5 mins at 200 degrees
  2. Sift the flour twice and keep aside. In a medium size bowl, add cocoa powder and about 3 tbsp milk, mix well without lumps and keep aside .
  3. Grease a cake pan and keep ready.
  4. In a bowl, add Sugar, salt & yoghurt mix till it dissolves. Add baking powder and baking soda, mix and leave it for 2-3 minutes. The yoghurt slightly bubbles and becomes frothy. Add oil and vanilla extract and mix gently.
  5. Add the flour little by little and fold it over. Do not mix vigorously. The cake batter is ready now and it will be very thick.
  6. Add Cocoa & Milk mixture to the batter. If the batter is too thick add 2 to 4 tblsp of Milk (if required)
  7. Reduce the temperature of the oven to 180 degrees. Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted at the centre comes out clean. Once baked, leave it in the pan for 10-15 minutes. Remove gently from the pan and cool the cake completely.
  • Add Milk seeing the consistency of the batter
  • Do not mix rigorously once the bubbles & froth are formed
  • People who are not diet conscience can use regular sugar as well. It tastes the same.
