MOIST EGGLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH CRANBERRIES - 100 posts celebration!!!!

Finally i have hit a century!!!This definitely calls for celebration and i couldnt think of a better dessert than a cake.Chocolate cake is my favorite and so baked the same.This is a very simple chocolate cake recipe and I simply enhanced the flavor of the chocolate by adding some coffee powder.I also added some dried cranberries as they compliment well with chocolate .

INGREDIENTS

All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cup
cocoa powder - 1/3 cup
Instant coffee powder - 1 tsp
baking soda - 1 tsp
salt - 1/2 tsp
sugar - 1 cup
vegetable oil - 1/2 cup
buttermilk - 1 cup
vanilla extract - 2 tsp
Dried cranberries - 1/4 cup + to sprinkle on top

METHOD

Preheat oven to 375°F .Grease the cake pan with butter or oil spray.Sift and mix all the dry ingredients right in a bowl. Mix all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl .Add wet ingredients to dry and fold it until all dry ingredients are mixed. Add the cranberries and mix it.Pour it into the baking pan and put some cranberries on top as well.Tap the pan a couple of times on the surface.Bake for 25 to 30 min or until the toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool thoroughly.
