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
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup boiling water , TO BE ADDED LAST
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!!
is there any special reason why we add vinegar and boiling water in the cake… cause i have never added them before in any 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..
