The Best Chocolate Cake

Yesterday was my birthday and this time I wanna try my favorite cake. I know that my hubby will bring a surprise cake but I wanted to try this one from many days and I think this is the prefect time to enjoy chocolate cake. I made little changes in the general version of the cake and it tasted awesome. It was smooth fluffy and delicious. Even my hubby enjoyed this cake more than that he bought in the store. Here is the recipe.

All purpose flour 2cups
Cocoa powder 1/4cup
Granulated sugar/powdered sugar 1.5 cup
milk as required for mixing
eggs 3 or 2(if you are using large eggs)
baking powder 1/2tbsp
baking soda 1/2tbsp
salt 1tea spoon
vanilla essance- 1tbsp
kismis/raisins hand full (yellow raisins)

Preheat the oven to 350F. Take a large mixing bowl and at first mix all the dry ingrients
together. take flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Mix well. Then in another bowl take milk(nearly 1/4 cup),oil, vanilla essance and break open eggs. Whisk them till they are mixed throughly. Pour this liquid mixture on to the dry ingredients and beat with electronic whisker or hand mixer. Finally add raisins and mix well. Take a round baking tray and grease it with oil (or non stick spray and you can even line with parchmen paper). Pour this batter on to the baking tray and bake for 15-20min. Insert a tooth pick and when it comes out clean then it indicates that the cake is done. Decourate your cake with the frosting you like. I decorated with chocolate frosting.

IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

Morning while talking  to my hubby, I was adding water into over night fermented Idli batter, while talking I didn't realize how much water I'm adding. Few more water drops spoiled my whole batter. Consistency now is thin. I left it that way in refrigerator. I can make utappam but I want Idli, friends any ideas to repair it?

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack. I love self rising flour and its uses, I had already posted pan cakes and cake with self rising flour. It is very easy to use and yields very fruitful results.
Now coming to recipe

Makes 8 medium size buns
Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)
Salt-1/4tea spoon
Butter-1 cup(melted and measured with 160ml cup)
Egg-1+1 for wash (coat on surface of unbaked bun)

Add dry active yeast to the warm milk (the milk should be lukewarm i.e., when you insert your finger it should not hurt you), close with lid and keep aside for15min during which the yeast becomes active. Now take a bowl and add self rising flour, salt and sugar. Mix well. Break open egg in a s…

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
