Eggless Chocolate Cake

This is a really fantastic reciepe, Eggless Chocolate Cake was created during ration times in the UK during the War when ingredients were hard to come by. But this really doesn’t lack in flavour or texture!

This reciepe is really versitile and with a few changes this can be easily adapted to be a great Vegan / Vegetarian cake.
