Eggless Chocolate Cake - Moist Chocolate Cake Recipe(No eggs no butter)

I googled and googled for a very basic chocolate cake recipe and there were soooo many....But my constraint was no eggs, butter and it should be very simple. Trust me, any beginner can try this and I guarantee it wud turn out perfect without any flaws. But the quantity and mixing need to be noted down very carefully as it may be turn sticky and not cooked inside if inaccurate.The taste is no lesser than a brownie and can be served as such or with a helping of choco / caramel sauce.
