Wet ingredients

Dry ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven at 180C. Prepare a 8″ or 9″ cake tin by creasing with oil and dusting with flour.
  • Add 1 cup water into a mixing bowl. To that add 1 cup sugar. I have sued castor sugar here. You can any type of powdered sugar. Mix well to dissolve the sugar.
  • Add 1/4 cup oil, 1 tablespoon vinegar, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Mix the wet ingredients thoroughly.
  • Sieve wheat flour, plain flour, salt and baking soda over the wet ingredients. Fold and mix.
  • Pour the prepared batter into the greased and dusted tin. Tap once or twice.

  • Let the cake cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Then invert and cool in a wire rack till it reaches room temperature.
  • You can dust with sugar or cocoa powder if needed.
  • Cut the cooled cake into squares and serve as snack or dessert.
