MOIST CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH CHOCOLATE SAUCE

 

This is a simple moist chocolate cake which is amazingly light. It is soo soft it tends to break when you unmould it so please let it cool down thoroughly also please use a proper cake pan which is greased well and dusted with flour. You can either slice it in half and sandwich it with a white chocolate spread, strawberry jam or just plain whipped cream. I this time did not sandwich it, i just cut it up and served it with a chocolate sauce and ice cream.
INGREDIENTS FOR THE CAKE:
1 cup sugar
1 cup white flour
2 tablespoons  cocoa powder
1 teaspoon each baking powder and soda bicarbonate
2 tablespoons of nesquik drinking chocolate powder
1/2 tsp each salt and white vinegar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup boiling water , TO BE ADDED LAST
METHOD:
mix all the 1st 7 ingredients well. add rest of ingredients and lastly the boiling water. put into a baking dish and bake in a preheated oven at 170 and COOL IT COMPLETELY….or even better keep in the fridge for a few hours. Then you can slice it in half through the middle to fill it.
FOR THE CHOCOLATE SAUCE:
100 grams milk chocolate
1/2 cup of milk ( i used semi skimmed milk coz its what i have at home, but i think it would have a better consistency with full fat milk)
Melt the milk and chocolate till its all melted. Keep it aside and it wont be thick…so you can use it as a sauce
This cake gets more moist and softer as its kept
ITS SUCH AN AMAZING CAKE!!

    vinegar or lemon r used in cakes so that when they get together with baking pwd they bring fizz and help the cake rise n to make it light..
