Eggless Chocolate Sponge Cake

Servings: 1 pound cake,serves 4-5

Cooking Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 cup curd/yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour/maida
  • 1 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup oil


Take a deep bowl and add all purpose flour,baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Mix all the ingredients very nicely. Dry ingredients are ready.

In another bowl add curd and oil and whisk it till it is mixed nicely.

Now add sugar and vanilla extract in it and whisk it till sugar is dissolved properly in the curd and the mixture is smooth in texture. Our wet ingredients are also ready.

Now add the dry ingredients in the wet mixture in batches and mix nicely.The batter will be little thick and dense.If it is too thick and dense then add 2-3 tbsp milk in it.

Cake batter is ready,it should be smooth in texture,there should not be any lumps in the batter. Pre heat oven for about 10 minutes at 180 degree celsius or 350 degree fahrenheit. Prepare a cake pan (you can use any pan of your choice,I used 8″ by 8″ square cake pan) by greasing and dusting with flour nicely.

Pour the batter in the cake pan and tap it well. We tap the tin after pouring the batter so that if there is any air bubbles in the batter,it will escape. Now bake the cake for about 25-30 minutes. After 20 minutes check the cake by inserting a clean knife or tooth pick at multiple places and if it comes out clean this means cake has been baked properly.If not then bake it more for about 5 minutes and then check it again.

Take out the cake from the oven safely and let it cool for about 10 mins in the pan and then unmould it on the wire rack and let it cool completely. Then you can cut it and serve with hot tea or coffee as it is or you can use it for multiple deserts as per your liking or frost this cake with Chocolate Ganache and your super delicious chocolate cake will be ready in no time. This cake is good for 4-5 days. Do try this and let me know how you like it. Enjoy !!
