BM # 32 Week 1
Cooking with alphabets " D "
When it came to the letter"D" , I knew it had to be a cake.I had two cake recipes with this letter and both these cakes are my favorite.Sine we all are chocolate fans I preferred this one.
This chocolate cake is sandwiched with Dark Fantasy Chocolate Biscuits. The cream from the biscuits melts after baking and lends a wonderful flavor to the cake. The flavor is so so chocolatey. The chocolate fans do not miss this one, you will love it.you can always make variations by using different cream biscuits, in that case you might need to change the basic cake flavor too.I have tried chocolate with orange cream biscuits and they taste awesome with chocolate flavoring.
I am not very good with frosting so normally end up using ganache , which is something that we all like.Anyway even if you do not frost the cake still tastes wonderful because of the cream biscuits.
I can condensed milk ( 400 gms )
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup oil / butter
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Few drops vanilla extract
200 ml soft fizzy drink
Dark fantasy chocolate cream biscuits
Sieve the flour , cocoa ,baking soda and baking powder.
Whisk oil, condensed milk and vanilla extract.
Mix the dry ingredients to the wet adding coke gradually, till you reach the batter consistency.
Beat well and pour half the batter in a lined and dusted mould.
Spread a layer of the chocolate biscuits on the batter layer.
Pour the rest of the batter on top of the biscuits.
Bake at 180 deg for 30 minutes.
Frosting the cake
Pour ganache over the chocolate and decorate according to the occasion.
This is one of the best cake recipe that I have .it comes out just perfect and tastes very good.It is moist and has a better shelf life than the other cakes . A keeper recipe.
