2-3 eggsDSC_0189baking powder…DSC_0192 crushed almonds, butter cake, choco chips, maida, sugarDSC_0191Procedure – start with melting the choco chips with a little butter.DSC_0196 This is how I do it by heating the glass bowl put over a vessel filled with hot water.DSC_0219

Once melted, bring it down because we’re going to add this liquid form in the batter.DSC_0225

Beat 3 eggs for 5-7 mints. DSC_0205Beat as much as you can till it becomes smooth and white.

Add powdered sugar to it. Mix well.DSC_0210If you think the mixture lacks smoothness, add vegetable oil to it! Yes, that’s my trick number 1.

Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius.DSC_0266Now, slowly mix 1 cup maida using sieve into the mixture. Mix well.DSC_0234Add melted chocolate to it…DSC_0243…or replace chocolate with Nesquick – the chocolate drink for kids from Nescafe! Trick 2, it is.DSC_0248Add the almond powder and stir well.DSC_0246

It’s time you add a pinch of baking soda to the mixture along with a drop or two of vanilla essence and some fragrance. This fragrance-drops are my trick 3!DSC_0231Pour this mixture into the cake utensil. But before that, make sure to grease the surface of the utensil so that cake doesn’t stick to it.DSC_0255Trick 4 – place a butter paper under the tray/utensil of the cake for easy movement of utensil.

Sprinkle some white choco-chips over the batter before putting it in oven.DSC_0262Heat the mixture for the first 20 mints. Use a knife to see if the it is still wet inside the cake. If yes, heat again for 10 more mints.DSC_0268Trick 5 – you can add a pinch of salt in your cake to enhance the taste! But only a pinch. (laughs)

I am now taking out the cake. I have heated it for few extra mints to get a hard crust outside. It compliments the inner soft part.

DSC_0287And yay, it’s time you do the icing.DSC_0291Sprinkle the sugar powder using sieve. You can do it in case you don’t prefer the syrupy icing.

Put some crushed candies or gems, if you want.DSC_0294And here you go!DSC_0300Still want to experiment? Add pineapple or pieces any other fruit in the final mixture before baking. This adds a ‘kathha-meetha’ taste to your chocolaty cake. And here goes my trick 6!
