Eggless chocolate cake

Katy’s eggless chocolate cake

Katy, who works in the Breast Cancer Now Sheffield office, shares with us her simple and delicious chocolate cake recipe - it’s guaranteed to be a real crowd pleaser.


  • 300g 0% fat Greek yogurt 
  • 300g granulated sugar 
  • 300g plain flour 
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder 
  • 100g butter 
  • 50ml vegetable oil 
  • 200ml skimmed milk 
  • 30g dark cocoa powder 


  1. Preheat your oven to 160 °C. Grease and line a loaf tin (Katy uses a 9 ½ inch by 5 ½ inch tin) 
  2. Melt the butter by microwaving in short bursts (roughly 15 to 30 seconds at a time) and add to the oil, then whisk in the yogurt 
  3. Add all of the dry ingredients, then the milk, and mix together 
  4. When thoroughly mixed, put the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for 1 hour (cover with foil if the top starts to burn) 
  5. To check it’s done, insert a knife into the centre – you will know it’s done if the knife comes out clean
