Moist Chocolate Cake

A soft, moist, and delicious chocolate cake, which is eggless and butterless, and easy to make… What’s not to love?

You make this with just a wooden spoon or whisk, no mixer required! Be careful not to overmix the batter though, otherwise the cake will be dense and heavy.

This recipe is perfect for anyone who is allergic to eggs, or if you’ve simply forgotten to buy eggs. (Guilty…) Either way, you’ll never be able to tell that it’s eggless. The best part? This chocolate cake stays moist even after 3 – 4 days.
