This has to be the easiest no fuss chocolate cake ever!!! Just mix and stick into the oven and then halve and spread with an equally easy chocolate ganache and sprinkle almonds. Its yummy and if served with ice cream makes an awesome dessert.
1 cup of white room temperature yogurt ( around 130 grams)
Using the same cup as a measurement for the following ingredients:
2 cups of sugar
3 cups of white flour (maida)
3/4 cup of cooking oil
2 tablespoons or more of cocoa powder
a pinch of salt
4-5 tablespoons of hot milk
1 envelope (2.5 teaspoons) of baking powder
mix the yogurt with all the other ingredients. Pour into a baking dish and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees till done. Should not take more than 30-40 minutes. Cool it thoroughly and then cut into half. Sandwich and top with the ganache and sprinkle with flaked almonds
200 grams of milk chocolate
4-5 tablespoons of whole milk
a tablespoon of butter
in a double boiler melt the chocolate with the milk till smooth and then add the butter. Sandwich the cake with this and also top the cake. This makes enough to sandwich the cake and top it BUT… my daughter loves a LOT of ganache so if you want a lot of gooey sauce you need to make a bit more..say 300 grams of chocolate with 8 tablespoons of milk and 2 tablespoons of butter.
this is the pic of a cake i baked with this recipe out of the pan! i just sandwiched it with melted chocolate mixed with a few tablespoons of milk and added some nutella to it ! Was yummilicious!!
