Let the sweetness of Valentine’s Day remain forever. Zareen Ahmed, fondly known as Maaheen, is sharing her recipe of the chocolate cake with us today. Concentrate because Maaheen’s recipe has lots of quirky things to be added in your cake!
2-3 eggsbaking powder… crushed almonds, butter cake, choco chips, maida, sugarProcedure – start with melting the choco chips with a little butter. This is how I do it by heating the glass bowl put over a vessel filled with hot water.
Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius.Now, slowly mix 1 cup maida using sieve into the mixture. Mix well.Add melted chocolate to it……or replace chocolate with Nesquick – the chocolate drink for kids from Nescafe! Trick 2, it is.Add the almond powder and stir well.
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!Pour 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.Trick 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.Heat 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.Trick 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.
Put some crushed candies or gems, if you want.And here you go!Still 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!
