  1. Preparation:
    • Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
    • Grease and flour a baking pan (typically 9-inch round or rectangular) or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Cake Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together until creamy and fluffy.
  3. Adding Wet Ingredients:
    • Gradually add the vegetable oil, milk, yogurt, salt, and vanilla essence to the egg mixture. Mix well until combined.
  4. Incorporating Dry Ingredients:
    • Sift the cocoa powder, baking powder, and flour together into the wet ingredients mixture. Mix gently until just combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Optional: Adding Nuts:
    • Fold in the chopped walnuts or nuts of your choice if using.
  6. Baking:
