Classic Chocolate Cake

Classic Chocolate Cake

A classic chocolate cake is always enjoyed by everyone.
You may call it old-fashioned, but its irreplaceable!
I personally love the aroma of the freshly baked chocolate cake..
You may keep it simple as it is and serve with tea or as a dessert or lather it with loads of white whipped cream or chocolate icing!!!
Here's the recipe.. Enjoy!

You will need:
125gms dark chocolate (chopped)
4 tbsp milk
150gms butter (at room temperature)
150gms castor sugar
3 eggs
250gms maida (plain flour)
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda

Method:
On a double boiler, melt the dark chocolate with milk until it is smooth in texture.

In a large bowl, cream the butter with sugar.
Add the eggs (one at a time) to this creamed butter and sugar mixture.

Then, add the melted chocolate mixture to the butter mixture and mix well.

Sieve maida, salt, baking soda and add it to this mixture.
At this stage do not mix rigorously, be gentle and just fold the mixture.

In a well greased baking tray, pour this mixture and bake in a pre-heated oven for 25mins at 250degrees.


Voila! C'est pret!
