By popular demand i am sharing this recipe with all of you. I had decided to make this chocolate cake for diwali because my daughter did not feel like eating any traditional sweets!! I made it vegetairan because we dont eat eggs or meat on that day (another thing is that it did not even last a day!!!) . The cake is not a big one, and its more like a dessert cake if served with chocolate sauce, cream or icecream. Its soft and moist and a little crumbly so do take care!! I have used dark chocolate bar in this recipe instead of cocoa powder. Anyways here you go!!
125 grams of white yogurt
3/4 cup of sugar
75grams of dark chocolate bar (70% cocoa) melted with 2 tablespoons of milk in the microwave
1/2 cup of ordinary cooking oil
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1.5 cups of white flour , sifted
1.75 teaspoons of baking powder
3/4 teaspoons of soda bicarb
4-5 tablespoons of milk if needed
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Mix the room temperature yogurt with the sugar and meanwhile melt the chocolate bar with the milk and add to the yogurt. Mix well and then add the baking powder and baking soda and let it get frothy (will take about a minute) . Add the sifted flour slowly alternating with the oil and then lastly add the salt and the milk if the batter is too thick. Lower the oven to 180 degrees and put the batter in a greased tin and bake till done. It should take about 30-40 minutes. Cool and then slice!!!
Thats it!!!

    I baked this cake and everybody loved it, even though it tasted different from normal cakes with egg, maybe because of the yogurt! It was really fluffy and crumbly…
