Vegetarian / Vegan Chocolate Raisins Cake

This cake is very close to my heart because this is the first cake recipe I ever tried. I must have baked a hundred of them over the last few years!! :). The title says vegan...becuase chocolate powder used in this recipe is pure coco and not dutch processed or milk chocolate( :))

Here is the simple, sweet and quick whip up recipe with minimal number of ingredients....It is low in calories and vegan too!!

You need:
2 cups whole wheat flour  (jndian roti flour/ atta)
1 cup raw sugar (or light brown sugar)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp elaichi (Cardamom) powder
1tbsp lemon juice
2tbsp chocolate powder unsweetened
2 tbsp raisins
1/3 cup olive oil or roasted almond powder
1/2tsp salt
1 cup water or milk

  • mix all the dry ingredients together
  • add oil/almond powder, water and lemon juice or orange juice and mix well
  • Grease a 8x8 pan and pour the contents
  • (I use even the pre heat time ) bake at 350 f or 25-30 minutes 
  • Do the fork test and if it comes out clean, are done!
