Eggless wholewheat chocolate cake recipe with step by step photos.Chocolate cake is a favorite to most of us and I would never no to a piece of chocolate cake as it is always tempting.But we restrict ourselves to eat less as it is usually made out of flour(maida) and butter,though sometimes I go overboard and eat more and feel guilty later.Also when I prepare any bake for my son I like to do it with wheat flour rather than the regular white flour.This recipe of wholewheat chocolate cake comes to rescue under such circumstances.I have tried this cake a couple of times and it came out well.The only change I usually do in this recipe is to use cold milk instead of cold water as the cake tastes bit rich with the usage of milk rather than the water in the recipe.The cake is also very moist because of the usage of COLD water in the recipe.I have mentioned few variations in the notes in case if you want to try the recipe.

Here is how to make eggless wholewheat chocolate cake recipe with step by step photos:

Eggless Wholewheat Chocolate Cake:

Yields: 1 loaf or 7" round tin | Source: Vegrecipesofindia
Prep time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 35 mins | Total time: 45 mins
Cuisine: World | Category: Desserts/Snack

dry ingredients:
1 cup(120 gms) Whole wheat flour(1 cup=250ml)
3 tbsp Cocoa powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
a pinch of Salt

for wet ingredients:
3/4 cup(150 gms) Sugar
1 cup(250 ml) Cold Water
1/4 cup Oil
1 tbsp Lemon juice/Vinegar
1/2 tsp Vanilla essence


  • Grease a loaf tin or 7" round tin with oil and line with parchment paper.
  • Preheat the oven at 180 deg C/350 deg F for 10 mins.
  • Sieve wholewheat flour with cocoa powder,baking soda and salt a couple of times and keep it ready.
  • In a bowl take sugar and add cold water and mix it until the sugar melts.Add oil and lemon juice and mix it nicely until you get uniform mixture.
  • Add vanilla essence and mix it again.
  • Now add the sieved flour-cocoa mixture to the wet ingredients and mix it nicely until you get a homogeneous mixture with out any lumps.The batter will be slightly on the thinner side.
  • Pour it in the prepared pan and tap it to remove the air bubbles and bake it in the preheated oven at 180deg C for 35-40 mins until the cake is done.To check the doneness of the cake you need to inset a toothpick in the center ,if it comes clean which indicates that it is done.
  • Remove the tin and let it cool for 8-10mins on the counter and gently loosen the edges with a knife and gently invert on the wire rack and let it cool completely.
Cut into slices and serve as a snack or decorate with chocolate ganache or cocoa frosting and serve as a dessert.

  1. To make ganache: heat 1 cup cream over medium flame until it is hot(you do not need it bubbling, just hot enough to melt the chocolate) and pour over 2 cups chocolate chips and whisk it nicely until you get an uniform smooth ganache mixture and let it become slightly warm.Pour this ganache over the cake and decorate it with sprinkles or cocoa powder for a simple celebration cake.
  2. Use good quality cocoa powder and good quality chocolate for a richer taste.
  3. You can even frost the cake with cocoa frosting or chocolate icing.
  4. I have used 1 cup cold milk instead of 1 cup cold water and still it worked well and liked the taste of cake made with milk than the water.You can even use half and half of cold milk and cold water.Make sure you use cold water/milk not the room temperature water/milk.
  5. You can make the cake with regular flour or half and half too.
  6. You can replace oil with the melted butter(at room temperature)in the recipe but it needs to be beaten nicely as it is difficult to incorporate butter to the cold water.
