This is a very simple recipe, even a 10 year old can make this cake perfectly. So if you want a bite of this simple eggless cake, grab your mitts and get ready for the show:)

(Yields one 9 inch round cake)

1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
1 1/4 cup of sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder (I like it with strong chocolate flavour, if you want you can reduce the quantity to 1/3 cup)
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt (just a pinch)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp non-fat yogurt
1/4 cup extra light olive oil
1 cup cold water

Pre-heat the oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 9 inch round cake pan. In a large bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda together. Add the sugar and mix well with a fork, so that all the dry ingredients are combined well. In a separate bowl combine all the wet ingredients (oil, yogurt, extract and water). Whisk them together using a wire whisk till they blend. Now add this to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Pour the mixture into the 9inch round pan and bake at 350F for 25 to 30 mins or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Enjoy the cake with your favorite topping. You can also frost this cake.
