Chocolate Cake……..My 3rd Chocolate Cake Recipe

Who can resist a good slice of chocolate cake……….i at least cant and when in the blog world you come across so many different types of cake recipes that i always get tempted to make one……..It was sisters b’day yesterday and so a good reason to bake a chocolate cake. The cake was very delicious and loved the texture of it. It was soft and full of chocolate. Totally Loved it !!!! :0


Chocolate Cake


Maida 1 cup

Cocoa 1/2 cup

Instant Coffee 1 tsp

Curds 1 cup

Sugar 3/4 cup

Baking Powder 1 1/4 tsp

Baking Soda 1/2 tsp

Vanilla Essense 1 tsp

Oil 1/2 cup

Chocolate Chips 1/4 cup


Preheat oven at 180c

Grease and flour a cake tin and keep ready

Sieve maida,cocoa and coffee in a bowl. 

In a separate bowl mix curds and sugar and beat the mixture nicely till it is creamy and sugar is dissolved.

Add soda,baking powder and vanilla and give a mix and rest the mixture for 5 mins.

At this stage you will find the mixture has turned bubbly.

Add oil and give a nice mix again.

Add the sifted flour mixture and half of chocolate chips and whisk nicely till you have a smooth batter.

Pour the mixture into the greased tin , sprinkle the remaining chips on the top and bake in the pre-heated oven for 30 mins.

After 30 mins you can insert a toothpick in the center and check whether the cake is done.

If the toothpick comes out clean it is done or if it comes out with a bit batter then bake for another 5-10 

After 5 mins invert the cake on the rack and let cool for some time.


U can replace the choclate chips with walnuts as divya has done, as i am not very fond of nuts i replaced it with chips.

The cake remains quiet soft and i think that is due to the addition of oil.

Best served warm with a dollop of ice cream and a dash of chocolate sauce on top.

Thanx Divya for sharing this yummilicious cake recipe. Do hop over to her blog as well as she has some yummy creations.
