I googled & googled for a very basic chocolate cake recipe and there were soooo many....But my constraint was no eggs, butter and it should be very simple. Trust me, any beginner can try this and I guarantee it wud turn out perfect without any flaws. But the quantity and mixing need to be noted down very carefully as it may be turn sticky and not cooked inside if inaccurate.
The picture may not be all that great but taste is no lesser than a brownie. It was a late evening so I put the blame on the lighting ;)
I've recommended this recipe to few friends, cousin they too tried & agreed with me about the taste. And finally it was certified by my niece, she liked it soo much, and when I heard that she took it to school daily till it got over I was on top of the world!!. Am waiting for my lil one to taste it too.....though have given her few pinches of this cake, she was licking & didnt leave my fingers :)
And I am sending this to KO Rasoi's Wear your food .
All purpose flour - 1 cup (My 1 cup measures 200 gms)Cocoa powder - 2 tbspBaking soda - a pinchBaking powder - 1 tspSalt - 1/4 tsp
Water - 1 cupSugar - 3/4 cupVanilla essence - 1/2 tea spnLemon juice / Vinegar - 1 tsp (I used lemon juice)Oil - 1/4 cup
Mix wet ingredients till sugar completely dissolves, keep aside.
Make sure to sift together the dry ingredients to ensure there are no impurities and lumps. Also the baking soda and powder needs to evenly spread out.
Now add the dry ingredients slowly little by little to the wet ingredients and stir slowly in one direction. Make sure no lumps are formed in the mixture.
Pre-Heat the oven to 175 deg c and grease the cake pan with few drops of oil.
Pour the mix on to the greased pan and bake it for 35-40 mins . Check if a fork inserted comes out clean.Allow it to cool,refrigerate it and serve cold.
The next time I baked this with wheat flour(the normal chapathi flour) , still it turned out good but it didnt raise much as APF. Is it the case with wheat flour always, friends need ur advice on this, do drop in ur comments.
And I received this award , am so happy...Thanks Supriya!!
And Silence Sings passed on these awards to me, I'm honored by her words in her blog :)
