Chocolate Cake

‘Chocolate Cake’ is my son’s favorite cake.  The dark color and the softness of the cake is irresistible!  It is so yum that you will ask for more…!  I avoid icing on my cakes for health reasons, but you can decorate the cake with any icing of your choice.

This ‘Chocolate Cake’ is off to Hema’s event “CFK: Chocolate” which was started by Sharmi


I am also sending the cake for the event “Kid’s Delight ” hosted by Srivalli



All purpose flour/ Maida – 2 3/4 cups

Baking powder – 1/2 tsp

Baking soda – 2 tsp

Salt – 1/2 tsp

Cocoa powder – 1 cup

Boiling water – 2 cups

Vanilla Essence – 1 1/2 tsp

Butter – 1 cup

Sugar – 2 1/4 cup

Eggs – 4



Pour boiling water over cocoa and whisk until smooth.  Let it cool.  Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Keep aside.  Cream butter and sugar in a bowl.  Add each egg and blend well.  Add the vanilla and mix well.  Add flour mixture alternately with cocoa mixture and fold in.  Pour into prepared cake moulds.  Bake in a preheated oven on 350 degree F or 175 degree C for 25 to 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Leave it in the oven for 10 minutes.  Take out and allow it to cool completely before serving.  Enjoy with your kids!

    Happy baking,


  44. I like your chocolate cake,I am really not into cake but sometimes i love to bake for my loved ones. I don’t like icing on my cake, I think it spoils the taste of the cake and all the mess.
