Chocolate cake is a rich, moist and incredibly mouth-watering dessert which I love to bake. This was one of the best chocolate cakes I’ve ever made, which had a tender crumb, with precise amount of sweetness, flawlessly moist and had a powerful flavor of chocolate. The timing is really tricky while u r planning to bake a chocolate cake. Always remember to use ingredients at room temperature and do not over-bake it. This might result in a dry & messy cake. Follow the instructions word to word and you will find yourself on the winning side in baking a cake. If u find urself drooling over your keyboard & unable to control your chocolate cravings, why don’t you urself a favor? Just get into your kitchen and bake this fabulous cake. Best for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries and festivals etc.

Sugar (Granulated) 1 & 3/4 cups

Mix & Mix.
Mix the batter until fluffy and smooth. Remember not to leave chunks in it.
Then add eggs in it one by one.
Then add vanilla essence. Beat again properly.
Beat until soft, creamy and fluffy as shown below :)
Next add flour and milk in the above (egg) mixture in 3 alternative pours. Start and end with flour mixture. Combine all things and remember not to over mix or it will ruin ur cake.

Now grease the cake pan and pour the batter in it. Bake in the oven for 25-40 minutes. Check by a knife or tooth pick to see if the cake is done.
