:: Butterless Moist Chocolate Cake ::

i was a bit dissapointed with the outcome. i believe there's nothing wrong with the recipe. it's just due to ME who's pretty lazy to take out the hand mixer, and instead use the food processor to do the job. it seems that the eggs added is a little bit segregrated, otherwise, i believe this should be a perfect recipe.

2 biji telur
1 cawan minyak masak
1 cawan gula pasir
1 cawan gula perang

2 tsp soda bicarbonate
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup chocolate powder
2 cups tepung gandum

1 tsp vanilla
1.5 cup chocolate milk
2 tsp instant coffee powder mi with 1/2 cup of water

1. beat eggs.
2. add in sugar and beat till fluffy.
3. pour in minyak masak and beat further.
4. ayak bahan B.
5. masukkan bahan B ke dalam telur, gula + minyak yang telah dipukul berselang-seli dengan bahan C.
6. gaul sebati. (this is the part that i skip i guess. because after mixing, i straight away pour the batter in the mould.)
7. bake in a preheated oven at 170deg for 1 hr or till cook.
