Eggless Cocoa Cake

After all the cakes I have baked over a period of time,the eggless version is one cake I've never tried or even remotely thought of trying. Well then, today I did this. Found the recipe in an old booklet that once came in free with a pack of Cadbury's cocoa powder......this offer I guess was sometime in the 80's.

Step 1 : Seive One cup all purpose flour and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and set aside.
Step 2 : Take 2 tablespoons of crisco ( butter flavor) and 3/4 cup of granulated sugar and beat with a hand mixer till creamy.Add 1 teaspoon of Soda Bircarb to this and mix well.
Step 3: Take 1/2 a cup of yoghurt, add a pinch of salt .
Step 4: Fold in the flour into the sugar cream mixture alternating it with the yoghurt.
Step 5 : Pour out the batter into a lined pan and bake for about 40 minutes at 180 degrees ( in a gas oven) Test with a skewer , if it comes out clean - get the cake out and set aside for cooling.

 Thats the slice - perfect texture and taste ..............!
