Chocolate cake, who doesn't love it? trust me I just don't need an excuse to make a chocolate cake. After these years of baking, I did try many recipes and this particular chocolate loaf cake (eggless & butterless) is one of the best by far. So I had to share this recipe, I cut the cake and shared it with my friends and they loved it and they said they wanted the recipe :-) so here goes the recipe for this deliciously moist and yummy chocolate cake. I made the cake in a loaf pan you can do it however you wish, a chocolate ganache frosting would do wonders to this cake ;-) but you don't need too much decoration for this cake. Adding chopped walnuts or pecans or almonds would be great too. The cake is mild in sweetness, I used organic sugar and this cake is great if you serve it with a scoop of ice cream and chocolate sauce on top with some chopped nuts.

1. I have recently started to use kosher salt in all my baking recipes, I find it gives a great flavor to the bakes. Its mild in saltiness than regular iodised salt. So if you are using regular salt half it. 


2. The original recipe calls for water but I have used 2% milk for richness, you can use water if you want.


3. Feel free to use nuts, chocolate chips in the recipe if you like. 


4. In case you plan to make this into a layer cake, I would suggest for a chocolate ganache frosting, this cake will be perfect to cut into layers.
