eggless moist chocolate cake

Chocolate cakes....yummy..this is the first word which comes straight from our mouth rather always from my mouth as usualy in cakes i prefer chocolate cake and i just cherish like anything...even my husband and my daughter are in favour of chocolate cakes than any other flavoured cakes.It was 1st aug and suddenly realised oh my god !! tomoro is 2nd aug and my husband's birthday and there i felt no time for ordering now,its too late ,but baking cake at home is never too late ,though i am never good at baking cakes at home as we dont use eggs at home,yes we r not eggitarian but completely vegeterain,without eggs its quite difficult to get a good sponge like we get in cake shops but still i wanted to give it a try as occassional on birthdays,anniversaries,valentines i prefer a home make cake rather then a ready made cake :) to impress my hubby dear :P,so had very less time and suddenly i started searching for some eggless chocolate cake and i really found 2-3 similar ones and were kinda easy and very less time consuming so i mmediately wrote on a piece of paper which i found lying down with whom my daughter was playing around and just started writing the ingredients by the time she came running and suddenly she tempered my laptop as usual and the window got closed...phew !! i wanted to yell at her but was in hurry so again looked for the recipe but in vain ,still could found similar ones with different method and so though now its high time and i shud give it a try...and bingo !! i finally made this beautiful cake in minutes and hid it before my hubby came as wanted to surprise him the next day.The day came and early in the morning before he left for his office i presented this cake in front of him and he was really surprised,also he was impressed by the outcome and we all had almost finished in no time.
