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
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.
