Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake... Hmmmm.. Delicious..

I have never thought in my life I will be able to bake and that too a Chocolate Cake and in Heart shape :-)

This cake is eggless too...

Here is my Chocolate Cake

The Ingredients Required:

Maida (All purpose flour) - 1.5 cups
Sugar - 1 Cup (Powdered)
Coco Powder - 4-6 Tbsp (Depends on the quality and taste of the Coco)
Cooking Soda - 1 Teaspoon
Butter - 5 Tablespoon (Room temperature /slightly melted)
Milk - 1 Cup (Boiled and at room temperature)
Vanilla Essence - 1 Teaspoon
Dark Chocolate and Almond - For Garnishing


Sieve Maida,Sugar, Cocoa powder and cooking soda. This is to ensure that the ingredients are mixed well and there is no lumps. Make a well in the middle of the sieved flour and add butter,essence and milk and mix. Don't beat it hard, mix it gently or in other words fold it.

Now take a baking mould, grease it with butter and dust it with Maida. Preheat the OTG for 10 minutes at 150 c.

Now pour the batter into the prepared mould and bake it at 150 c for 10-15 minutes or till it is cooked.

Allow the cake to completely cool off  before coating it with Chocolate and almond.

Once the cake is in room temperature, demould it and add the chocolate coating and sprinkle the crushed Almond and it is ready to hog.

The chocolate coating needs to melted using Double Boiling technique. I will post this technique soon.

Till then enjoy your cake.
