So, today a month has passed since the New Year was born. Wow! Time passes by so soon. January was a super hectic month and I was zipping in and out of town. February also looks chocobloc already and I have some exciting things lined up for the readers.

I have also announced the Baking classes in February. You can get more details on my Facebook page. I will be adding a few more courses soon. Stay tuned on that one!!!

A few days back my BFF Arundati posted a picture of a gorgeous Chocochip Chocolate Cake, and I knew right away I had to make it.



I mean look at it, its so drop dead gorgeous. The first time I made it, I felt that the cake can be made a little more moist. So the second time I made it, I made a slight teeny weeny change to her recipe. I replaced the butter with oil. Rest was just straight out of her blog, this is what I got.

Its totally free of mess and its just so quick to make.


Serves 8
Ingredients:
1 cup flour,
1/4 cup oil + 2 tbsp butter,
1/2 cup sugar,
1/2 cup milk,
1 egg,
1 tsp vanilla essence,
1 1/2 tsp baking powder,
A pinch of salt,
2 tbsp cocoa powder,
1/2 cup choco chips,


 Method:
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line the bottom and sides of a 8″ round cake tin with butter paper and brush with oil.
  2. Sift the flour with the cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  3. Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl. Add the egg and beat again. Add the vanilla essence.
  4. Now add the milk alternating with the flour mix and gently mix using a whisk. Add the choco chips and mix, reserving a few to sprinkle on top.
  5. Pour this batter into the prepared cake tin. Sprinkle the reserved chocolate chips on the top.
  6. Bake for 30 mins or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  7. Transfer the cake to a cooling rack and cut into 8 wedges.


Its the most delicious cake, fast and easy.
Enjoy :-)
