Old - fashioned Chocolate cake


I like baking chocolate cakes. Even a little variation will make big difference in taste. Addition of sour cream is a secret ingredient for this wonderful cake. Pravin just loved this.

Ingredients :

  1. 1 1/4 cups plain flour
  2. 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  3. 3/4 tsp baking soda
  4. A pinch of salt
  5. 100g dark cooking chocolate, chopped
  6. 2 cups sugar
  7. 1/2 cup boiling water
  8. 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  9. 1 1/4 tbsp cocoa powder
  10. 250 gm softened butter,
  11. 3/4 cup sour cream
  12. 1 tbsp dark rum

How to bake :

  • Grease & line the base of the 23 cm baking pan. Keep aside.

  • Sieve the flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt.

  • Process the chocolate and half of the sugar in the food processoe until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

  • Now, pour the boiling water & process until the chocolate has melted.

  • Meanwhile, beat the eggs, cocoa and remaining sugar. Mix the melted chocolate to this.

  • Combine the butter, sourcream and rum to the above mixture & blend together.

  • Spoon the flour to the above mixture & fold them gently and carefully.

  • Bake at 170 C for 75 min or until cooked through.

Cool and serve the cake.
