Eggless Chocolate cake

Chocolate cake is my all time favorite. For a longtime now, I was hunting for an eggless recipe as I do not like the flavor and smell of eggs in a cake. Most recipes called for cake or aerated drinks like Pepsi(i did not want to used these either). So,finally i mixed and matched a few recipes and ended up with a yummy chocolate cake.
Here's how

3/4th cup(94 g or 3 oz) all purpose Flour/Maida
1/2(4oz) Cup Sugar
5 spoons unsweetened Cocoa powder
2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil(I used canola oil)
1/2 Spoon Baking Soda
1/4 to 1/2 spoon Salt
1/2 Cup Cold water(Not iced)
2 Spoons Lemon juice or 1 spoon Vinegar

Preheat the oven to 350F.
Grease a 7 inch round baking pan. You can use a Standard Cake loaf pan too.
Sieve together Flour and Cocoa Powder in a mixing bowl.
Add sugar,Soda,Salt and mix well.
Now add the Vinegar,Oil and water.
Mix well,again. There should not be any lumps.
Pour the batter into the baking pan and bake for 30-40 mins.

Oven baking time may slightly differ. check the cake after 30 minutes. For a cake to be completely done a tester(toothpick or knife etc) inserted into the centre of the cake should come out clean.
Remove from oven and cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Then,carefully remove from pan and slice it into squares or as desired.
Enjoy this simple and delicious chocolate cake as it is or with whipped cream.
