I had posted this on my other blog the day i made the cake and now reposting it here!!
What you need:
3/4 tsp baking powder, 3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tbsp cocoa pdr
1/2 tin milkmaid
Few drops of vanilla essence
1 1/2 tbsp powdered sugar
How to make the cake:
In a large bowl, Mix the maida,Cocoa powder, baking powder and the
baking soda.. Then use a sieve and dust it off onto a plate or another
bowl. keep this aside..
2- In another mixing bowl, take 75gm butter, to this add the powdered
sugar and mix well till it gets fluffy( you could use a blender for this
purpose or the spoon is good enough)
To this add the mentioned quantity of milk n vanilla essence
And then add in the milkmaid.. mix all nicely till it becomes smooth and creamy..
Step 3- Take the bowl (from Step 2), and to this mix in the maida mixture, and beat well till the whole things blends nicely..
Step 4: Pour the cake mixture into a microwave proof bowl and bake for 5mins.
Once time is up, let it sit and cool for about 3minutes before you touch or test it out..
Ta da… your cake is ready…
tried making double the quantity at home.. all that i did was double
the materials used and cook it for 10mins instead of 5… tastes
yummmy.. nice n soft.. 🙂
If you wish, you could add icing to this with Icing sugar, butter and instant coffee mix… 🙂
Tip to chk if cake has baked well:
Run a sharp knife straight thru the cake to see if it is cooked.. if the knife comes out clean, its done…
