chocolate cake with chocolate sauce

Let’s start baking

Ingredients Required:- (1cup-200ml)

  1. All purpose flour (Maida) – 1½ cup
  2. Milk- 1 cup
  3. Powdered Sugar- 1 cup
  4. Lemon Juice- 2tsp
  5. Refined Oil – ½ cup
  6. Vanilla essence – 1tsp
  7. Cocoa Powder- 3-4 tbsp.
  8. Baking Soda- ¾ tsp
  9. Baking Powder -¾ tsp

For chocolate sauce

  1. 300gm chocolate compound or any chocolate will do
  2. ½ cup hot water

Method:-

  • Boil milk. Cool it for 2 minutes.
  • Add lemon to curdle it, we have to make curd cheese (paneer) from this.
  • Drain extra water through strainer from curd cheese (paneer) now. Keep aside, we’ll need that remaining water too, to prepare our cake.
  • In a mixture blend curd cheese (paneer), by adding 2-3 tbsp of water into thin paste.
  • In a bowl beat sugar, oil and vanilla essence with a beater till you get a smooth mixture.
  • Now in another bowl sieve all purpose flour(maida), baking powder, baking soda, and cocoa powder, 3 to 4 times. This step is very important, because it incorporate air into our all purpose flour, and that’s how batter will be light and airy.
  • Add all purpose flour mix into sugar and oil mix spoon by spoon.. Mix this
  • Now slowly add that blended curd cheese (paneer) paste into above flour and oil mix.
  • Also add that leftover water we get from curd cheese(paneer) into our batter.
  • Now the cake consistency should not be very runny, & neither too thick.
  • To check consistency cake mixture will fall from a tilted spoon on the count of 3, under its own weight & not need to be shaken off.
  • If the batter is too runny add some flour into that, and if the batter is too thick then add some milk into it.
  • Now in a cake tin, apply some oil, and dust it with some flour.. By this method your cake will not stick to the base of tin. It’ll come out easily.
  • Now pour batter in the dusted tin. Fill up to half of the container.
    For oven baking:-
  • Preheat the oven for 5 minutes at 180° C. Now put the cake tin into the oven and bake it for about 25- 30 minutes.
  • To check that if the cake is done or not insert a knife or toothpick into the center of cake. If it comes out clean, then our cake is done. 🙂
    For gas or stovetop baking:-
  • For stove baking you can use a steel or aluminium big mouth cooking pot , like – kadhai, big pan and dhokla maker. Now turn on flame and pre-heat your pot for five minutes.
  • On the base of your pot spread a layer of common salt (this salt can be reused each time you bake). Place a small plate upside down in the middle of your cooking pot.
    Then place the mould upon the stand/rack in cooking pot. Cover cooking pot with its lid and turn the flame to low. Bake it for about 25-30 minutes.

For Chocolate Sauce Preparation

  • Add chocolate and hot water together.
  • Mix well until the chocolate is properly melted.

Our chocolate sauce is ready. Pour it over cake and enjoy 🙂

La Vida Es Bella 🙂 Bon Appetit <3
