CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH WHIPPED CREAM


DESSERTS......are taking over me I think......just as Eve was hooked towards the forbidden apple. I was just thinking whom to blame for this.....the exotic, wonderful, culinary experts I came across in life?This blame game is very interesting, we humans tend to blame every other person except ourselves. So no point wasting time on it. Rather cheers to all the wonderful cooks I pass by everyday.
Day before yesterday, I was just thinking what to do with the chocolates that are showered on me by my kids on their birthdays. Piled up on the refrigerator , my son thinks eating them would be a threat to his teenhood. So this idea propped up....why not a chocolate cake with molten Cadbury. I am not so good at garnishing and toppings n dressing but it tasted good they said. I swear it is not a bit of self promotion. Try it, very simple.

INGREDIENTS : ( for the Cake )
Refined Flour : 1 coffee cup
Baking Powder : 1 tsp
Baking Soda : 1/4 th tsp
Sugar : 1/2 coffee cup
Unsalted Butter : 1/2 cup
Eggs : 2
Milk : 2 table spoon
Cadbury Dairy Milk or any Dark Chocolate : Two 140 gm bars

INGREDIENTS : ( for the topping )
Whipping Cream : 1 cup
Freshly cut fruits of your choice.

Sieve the flour,baking powder and baking soda together and keep aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, put the chocolate breaking into small pieces. Add one tablespoon water. Microwave at lowest speed at intervals of 20 seconds till  it melts into a creamy texture. Stir at each interval.
Melt the butter. In the mixer , put the sugar and butter, blend at normal speed till sugar melts and the
mixture turns light and fluffy. Add the milk and the beaten eggs. Blend for another two minutes.
Now add the flour mix two tablespoon at a time and blend well each time.
Add the chocolate mix at this stage and blend well for 2 to 3 minutes. Your cake mix is ready.
Preheat the oven at 180 degree C. Grease a cake tin with oil and dust with flour. Pour the cake mix till  half of the tin size.
Bake at 180 degree C for 40 mins. Check by inserting a fork at the middle .If it comes out clean , your cake is done. Let it cool completely. Now transfer to a plate.
For the topping whip the cream till it forms soft peaks. Dress it well . Refrigerate.Top with freshly cut  fruits just before serving.
Note I have not used Cocoa powder for this recipe. So it was kinda melt in the mouth and chocolatty.
