  • ¾ cups cocoa powder- 75g
  • ½ tsp baking soda -3g
  • 1 tsp baking powder- 4g
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil- 180mL
  • 1 + ½ cups castor sugar -300g
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt ( or curd hung over night)- 285g
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract- 2.5mL
  • ½ cup milk + 1 tsp white vinegar, mixed and rested for 5 minutes -120mL + 5mL
  • a pinch of salt
  1. Take an 8inch non stick pan and grease it with some vegetable oil. Take another 10inch pan and set these two aside.
  2. In a bowl whisk cocoa, flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder into a bowl
  3. In another large bowl, beat together oil and sugar until the mixture is pale and light
  4. Add yogurt and mix well.
  5. Beat in vanilla using mixer at low.
  6. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients alternating with milk, starting and ending with flour mixture. Mix only until well combined. Don't over mix.
  7. Pour the batter into the 8inch non stick pan. Take the 10inch non stick pan and place the pan with the cake batter in this bigger non stick pan. Now put both of these pans on the heat and bake at low heat. Let the cake cook for 5 minutes and then add some water in the 10inch non stick pan, making a water bath of sorts. Put the 8inch pan over it again and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If you're using an induction, fix the temperature at 160°C and bake for 40-50minutes.
