The Recipe is time tested and i have taught many to make this foolproof cake.The ingredients you will need are
Maida ( flour ) : 1 and 1/2 cup
Cornflour : 1/4 cup
Cocoa powder 5 tbspoons
Baking powder 1/4 tsp
Eno or soda : 1/2 tsp
Sugar powder or castor sugar 1 and 1/4 cup
1 cup Milk (mix coffee powder in this for flavor if u like )
3/4 cup sunflower or canola oil
1 cup curd
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp lemon ( if you are using soda and not eno)
1/2 cup mixed dryfruits (like cashew,walnut, hazelnut,raisins etc)
The key to making this cake is
1.Keep all ingredients on room temperature.
2.Open a new Eno packet but you will need only half for this recipe .
3. Mix dry ingredients first and mix properly with a whisk.
4.Mix all the wet ones in a bowl and beat nicely
5.Add dry mix to wet mix in three portions. Do not overmix. Take care that no lumps are formed. I always use a wired balloon whisk.
6. Add dry fruits at the last after dusting them with 1 tsp maida. You can make muffins too in silicon moulds.You can use Borosil Tray or Tupperware Crystal Wave range of microwave proof vessel.
7. I usually use Multicook for 3/4 batter and with the leftover batter make a small cake in crystal wave or sometimes make muffins in silicon moulds.
8.On Microwave power high in my MW it takes 5 min to cook.Since all MWs have different power please check the rise of cake and insert a knife or stick to check the doneness . U will be happy with the result.
These are the chocolate balls my kids made by mixing some muffins with chocolate ganache and rolling then in cake decoration and topping with gems. It was very tasty indeed.
