All purpose flour/Maida: 3 cups Powdered sugar: 2 cups Baking soda: 2 tsp Salt: 1tsp Cocoa powder: 6 tbsp Vegetable oil: 2/3 cup (I used sunflower refined oil) Vinegar: 2 tbsp (I used apple cider vinegar) Vanilla essence: 2 tsp Cold water: 2 cups
1. Pre heat oven to 160 degree C. 2. Sift the dry ingredients in a bowl. 3. In another large bowl mix the wet ingredients and stir well.( I did this with a hand mixer) 4. Add the flour mixture 4 to 5 tbsp at a time to the wet mixture and combine slowly to form a lump free batter. 5. Pour the mixture into the greased(and dusted) cake pan and bake for around 30 minutes or a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. 6. Cool the cake by leaving it aside for 1 minute or so. Then invert the pan over a rack and tap it gently to unmould the cake. 7. Apply the frosting and enjoy.
