Eggless Chocolate Cake

      Chocolate cake recipe which I have shared below was adapted from Hershey site and I must admit this a fool proof version of eggless chocolate cake. This is so soft and crumbly and tasted great with most of the fillings and toppings, I have tried.  Which is also very easy to make. Just two steps, mix everything together and bake it.   You  may wonder how cake turns super soft with out much effort..  It is nothing but a basic science behind the ingredients we use in this recipe.

     The Special ingredients used to replace eggs in this recipe is vinegar and baking soda or bicarbonate of soda (NaHCO3).  When  baking soda combined with an acidic ingredients, such as vinegar and citrus, it will release carbon di oxide that forms bubbles in the food. When heated, these bubbles expands and help to rise and make the food lighter. 

   Usually 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 1 tbsp of vinegar or equal amount of vinegar and baking soda works best in most of the eggless recipes and this combination are used in cakes, cupcakes and some bread recipes..
