Chocolate Rules Again! :)

Hey there! πŸ™‚

A long break means time to celebrate! And what better way to do that than with Chocolate! πŸ™‚

Since all the boys at home prefer chocolate to any other flavor, I keep looking for different chocolate cake recipes. I found this amazing recipe at bakerella.com – try it and see for yourself! She calls it the best chocolate cake ever and I totally agree! Totally yumm! πŸ™‚

This is the cake in its entirety! πŸ™‚ Chocolate goodness!

You will need –

2 cups – flour

1/4 tsp – salt

1 tsp – baking soda

Sift and keep aside.

1 cup – butter

Melt the butter on medium heat and while it melts, add

4 tbsp – cocoa powder

1 cup – boiling water

Stir well till it bubbles up, Turn off the heat and leave aside to cool.

In another bowl, whisk

2 – eggs

2 cups – sugar

1 tsp – vanilla

1/2 cup – buttermilk (I did not make it very runny but just whisked the yoghurt with a spoon)

I did this one at a time so that everything mixes well. (I also changed this order a bit as the original recipe calls for a different order πŸ™‚ )

Add the chocolate mix to this and beat just till everything combines together.

Add the flour mix and fold in.

Pour into greased baking dish and bake at 350 F (180 C) for 20-25 minutes.

I also tweaked the glaze for this one! The original recipe called for lots more but I toned the quantities down and made just enough to cover the cake and no leftovers! πŸ™‚ Hard to give you measurements on that so I will just list the ingredients down for you πŸ™‚

Butter – melt and while on the heat add some cocoa powder. Mix well and add some milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and icing sugar till the consistency is not too thick but combines well enough. Leave to cool and this will thicken up a bit.

Just spread over the cake when cooled down a bit and leave to set! πŸ™‚

Yes! It tastes as yummy as it looks! So easy to make and turns out fab! πŸ™‚

Doesn’t that glaze look so amazing?? πŸ™‚

Enjoy and let me know how it turned out for you! And do drop by Bakerella and leave some love for her too! πŸ™‚
