Cuisine: Global
Servings: 12


  • 1.5 cups Plain flour All purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoon Coco powder I used Hershey's
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ¼ cup Oil I used sunflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice Vinegar
  • 1 cup Water
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ tablespoon Vanilla extract


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C.
  • Mix the plain flour, coco powder and baking soda and sieve them to ensure even mixing. Keep aside.
  • Mix water, sugar, salt and make sure the sugar gets dissolved and then add lemon juice/ vinegar, oil and vanilla essence. Mix well.
  • Add the sifted flour and mix well.
  • Grease a baking pan with oil and dust with some flour, then pour the batter to it. (the batter will be watery)
  • Bake for 35 – 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out dry. Mine got baked at 35 minutes.
  • After done, cool down the cake for 5 minutes and then invert in a wire rack, let it get cooled completely and then cut into pieces.
  • When I tried inverting the cake immediately last time I had some broken pieces, so this time I waited for some time and then invert the cake in wire rack. Don't let it cool down for more than 15 minutes.


  • If you are a beginner like me, do not experiment with the measures and ingredients,  just follow it right and you will always get it right. Experiment with your own risk.
  • Baking powder is not equivalent to baking soda, so do not replace it.
