Hi my readers, Ramadan Mubarak to all the lovely people of Maldives & all around the world. I know a lot of people are waiting impatiently for a new recipe from me so here I go and the first recipe of Ramadan starts with Chocolate.
This is how cake should look when baked
For the cake:
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
100 grams dark chocolate (melted using a double boiler)
½ cup vegetable oil
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup butter milk (1 cup full cream milk + 1 tsp vinegar or 2 tsp lime juice mix & keep for 10 minutes)
1 large egg
For the poured syrup
½ cup heavy cream or whipping cream
1/3 cup condensed milk
½ cup cocoa powder (Sieved cocoa powder)
Prepare an 8 inch baking tray by greasing the bottom & sides with vegetable oil or margarine, set aside. Position an oven rack in the middle of the oven and heat the oven to 160 c. Mix all the syrup ingredients well until all the cocoa is dissolved set aside.
In a bowl using your hand mixture or a stand mixture mix all the cake ingredients. It will be easy to mix if sugar is finely ground. Pour cake mixture into baking tray. Bake the cake for 10 minutes just until the sides are set. Below is a picture.
Take the cake out from oven and pour the chocolate syrup on the middle of the cake, using a knife or the tip of a rubber spatula, gently swirl the cake batter together so they're mixed, but not completely blended.
Bake until a pick inserted about 1 inch from the edge comes out gooey, but not liquid, 40 to 45 min, don't over bake. The top will be puffed and slightly cracked ... enjoy!
