Chocolate Cake









This chocolate cake is moist,soft and delicious. I've prepared this cake before (during Christmas and the New year). It had good texture and I liked the way it turned out. One could eat the cake on its own or frost it with the ganache. Here is an old picture, clicked from my mobile :

The White Balls are  Coconut Snow Balls
Read the whole post of  the Chocolate Cake, Don't miss about how to make your own Butter Milk for the cake.
                                 
So, to make this Chocolate Cake, You'll need :


All Purpose Flour + 2 pinches of Baking powder
230 Grams
Sugar Powder
250 Grams
Butter (I used salted)
270 Grams
Cocoa Powder
20 Grams
Eggs
4 Nos
Vanilla Extract/ Essence
1 Teaspoon
Baking Soda
½ Teaspoon
Apple Cider Vinegar
1 ½ Teaspoons
Butter milk
3 Tablespoons




 
Method :

Begin by beating the butter and the sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the vanilla, eggs, butter milk and further mix it until everything gets incorporated well.



 and beat well. Now, the mixture looks curdled. Do not worry. Mix cocoa and the flour well, add the flour to the butter-egg mixture followed by soda and the vinegar and mix well until everything gets mixed properly. (Do not over mix after adding the flour. You could also use the rubber spatula to mix)




Now, add the cake batter to the greased cake tin, preheat the oven at 180 degrees C , place the cake tin in the top rack of the otg oven, bake for about 5 minutes (until the cake rises), next reduce the temperature to 150 degrees C and bake further 10 to 15 minutes, or until the tooth pick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the cake. This is how I did it in my new OTG Morphy Richards 28 Ltrs. Each oven differs, so keep an eye on your cakes when your trying any new recipe.


Here, I placed a cake tin and the cupcakes, cupcakes were ready by 13 mins approx.

Enjoy :)











I made my own Butter Milk for this recipe. Here's how : Add 1 tablespoon of  apple cider vinegar to 1 cup of milk. You could use plain vinegar too. Rest this mixture for around 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, you can see the milk slightly curdled! This is it! 
This buttermilk is used in the preparations of cakes, marination of the chicken, biscuits etc. Do not drink it.

Notes :
Store the cake in an air tight container once it cools down. 
One could also refrigerate the cake for about 3 days.
