Cocoa (Choco) Cake

Just wanted to try brown cake, which most of the children love to have. Just before closing the class for summer holidays we wanted to have a small party for children who comes to our home for studying.

We had a beautiful time with children, playing " Jenga" and some indoor games like musical chair. Felt that we had spent good time playing and laughing and having fun. Anyways there was no tension of studying lessons or completing notes. They were really free because the annual exams were over. Summer holidays were started and they were free to enjoy their time.
I have used Maida, Cocoa powder, sugar and some essence.
Lets see the recipe : Eggs are not used here in this cake and curd is used instead of eggs.

Things needed :

Maida/Al purpose flour : 2 Cups
Cooking Oil : (any cooking oil) : Little more than 1/2 cup.
Sugar : 3/4 Cup
Vanilla essence : 1/2 Teaspoon
Curd : 1/2 Cup
Milk : 1/2 Cup
Salt : A pinch
Baking Powder : 1 Teaspoon
Baking Soda : 1/4 Teaspoon
Cocoa Powder : 1 Teaspoon (Full).
Vanila Essence : 2 Drops

Method :

1. Sieve Maida, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder together. (Twice).
2. Powder sugar and add oil, curd and grind it nicely. Add milk and grind it.

3. Let it mix well and turn as smooth cream. Remove from the mixi jar and put it in a big bowl.

4. Add a pinch of salt and sieved maida, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda mixture.
5.  Add vanila essence. Mix it slowly without any lumps.
6. Heat the oven for 5 to 10 minutes.
7. Grease the tray with oil/ghee. Put the ready cake mixture and tap the tray, so that the mixture sets evenly.

8. Put the tray in the oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Insert a knife/spoon edge to check its done.
9. Put off the oven and remove the cake tray. Place it on the top of the oven for 5 minutes.
10. Now take it out the tray and let it cool. Cut the cake according to your wish. Yummy cake is ready to serve.

Note :

This is a simple cocoa cake which has turned very nice and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Our children enjoyed it. Adding more sugar is optional. Adding butter/olive oil instead of cooking oil is optional. Adding eggs instead of curd is optional. You can add some chocolate chips and bake.
Time : 10 Minutes for preparation and 35 Minutes for baking. I have used Mixi Jar (Liquidizer) to mix all the ingredients except maida. You can use egg beater instead.
Happy Summer Holidays 2017. (Children already gone for vacation). The very few around attended the Summer Holiday Party....☺☺☺
