Its baking time!! :D I never had the guts to bake cakes ever. But managed to bake before just for Sriram's Birthday. So again, when I came across a lot of blogs with wonderful cakes around, I really was inspired to bake again. So I gathered up all my courage to try again. And, here it goes, my successful (hopefully) story of baking a chocolate cake.
Ingredients:Sugar - 2 cups
Shortening - 1/2 cup
Cocoa - 1/2 cup
Eggs - 2 to 3
Cold water - 1/2 cup
All purppse flour - 2 cups
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Soda - 1 tsp
Vanilla extract- 1 tsp
Boiling water - 1 cup
Direction:1. In a mixing bowl, mix sugar, shortening & coco and beat well with a fork till they become a nice mixture.
2. Add eggs and 1/2 cup of cold water and beat well with a egg beater.
3. Add flour, soda, salt and vanilla extract and beat well again. Then add a cup of boiling water and beat well.
4. Pour the dough into a baking pan and bake it for 40 minutes at 350 degrees in an oven.
And voila... here goes the chocolate water cake... :) This cake will set up to 7 days and still be moist.
This chocolate-water cake is on its way to For the Love of Chocolate event hosted by Poornima.
