  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 no’s eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar


  • In a mixing bowl , mix together the cocoa powder, white sugar, eggs 2 no’s ,vegetable oil and vanilla. Whisk well until everything is fully incorporated.
  • Place a sieve over the mixing bowl , add all purpose flour , baking powder and salt. Sift everything together into the mixing bowl.
  • Mix everything together with a spatula to form a dough . Dough will be super sticky , don’t worry.
  • Cover the bowl with a cling and place in refrigerator for minimum 4 hours or preferably overnight ( I kept it overnight in fridge for about 14 hours)
  • Next day , remove the cling film and check for the thick dough.
  • Whilst , preheat the oven to 180 deg Celsius. Line the baking tray and set aside.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoon of cookie dough into palms and make small balls. For a smaller cookie , 1 tablespoon of dough is sufficient !
  • Coat the dough balls evenly in powdered sugar. Be generous enough to double coat the balls in powdered sugar.
  • Arrange the prepared dough balls with ½ inch apart in a baking tray and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. (Don’t overbake , if done cookie will harden and it won’t be fudgy )
  • Once after 10 minutes , remove from the oven. Cookies will look soft , just leave it in the baking tray for 5 minutes .
  • Then remove cookies from tray and let it cool on wire rack.
