Serves- No dont ask me that question. Because i served my own self with half the cake.
What you need?
Flour 2 cups
Sugar white or brown 1 cup powdered ( i used brown. I just like using brown cos it has a nice exotic ring to it)
Cocoa powder ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon
Vegetable oil or canola oil ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon
Water 1 cup
Soy milk at room temperature ½ cup( psst… i used normal cow s milk high fat. I dont care. I told you before.)
Baking powder 1 tablespoon ( yes.. that much because no eggs and no butter either. Baking is a science. You have to understand that baking powder makes the cake spongy and soft)
Vanilla custard powder 1 teaspoon ( optional) I just dont happen to like vanilla extract. Feel free to use the extract if you want to
Salt a pinch
For the toppings:
Chocolate chips any variety ( Toss in whichever you like. I like white chocolate buttons!!) ¼ cup
Dried Cranberries and raisins dusted with flour ½ cup
Orange zest grated 1 teaspoon( optional)
How to make it?
Place all the dry ingredients except the sugar in a large mixing bowl.
Now, combine well.
Preheat the oven at 175 C.Now, add the wet ingredients one by one starting with the oil. I added the custard powder at this stage. I forgot to do it before. But if you are going to use the custard, then add it when you are combining the sugar.
