This easy chocolate cake doesn’t contain eggs or butter and is so easy to make. Everything is mixed in one bowl. The cake comes out very moist and chocolatey and can be made with just pantry staples.

I’m always looking for ways to simplify recipes. I love how easy it is to make this chocolate cake and I especially love that I don’t need eggs or butter to make it. It still comes out incredibly moist and chocolatey. I didn’t miss the eggs, butter (and extra calories) at all.

This cake has the same texture as regular chocolate cake. It’s also sturdy enough that you can use it to make a layered cake.


This easy chocolate cake takes only about ten minutes to prepare and does not contain any eggs or butter.


  • oven to 350°F. Line an 8 inch x 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Add flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Whisk together until evenly combined.
  • Add in oil, milk and water. Whisk until batter is smooth.
  • Pour batter into prepared baking pan. Bake for about 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean and top of cake bounces back when you apply light pressure. Let cake cool completely before frosting and cutting.
  • To make chocolate ganache: Add chopped chocolate to a medium bowl. Bring heavy cream to a simmer on the stove. Pour heated heavy cream over chopped chocolate and immediately start to mix until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Let chocolate ganache cool at room temperature or in the fridge until it becomes firm enough for frosting the cake.
