  • Flour 2cups (sieved)
  • Baking powder ( 2tsp)
  • Cocoa powder 1cup
  • 2 cups sugar (finely ground)
  • 4 duck-eggs (well beaten)
  • essence of vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Margarine (2 tbsp, melted)
  • Refined oil (2tsp)
  • Dry friuts (cashews, raisins, cherries ... almonds , soaked in orange juice for overnight)

Place sugar and the egg and beat it with the help of a fork (approx 100 times). Add the sieved flour ,along with cocoa powder, baking powder, butter and milk into the mixture and again beat at least 200 times. Grease the cake pot with butter uniformly, and pour the mixture into it, and refreigerate for 1/2 an hour, after covering it.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven at 180 deg Celsius, take the cake-pot out of the refrigerator and place it immediately in the pre-heated OTG, on the middle rack (keep both, the top and the bottom heaters on) for 30 minutes.
Ensure that the full cake is baked, by using a dip-stick ... see that nothing liquidy sticks to it.

This new year I have made this Chocolate cake for my friends and family.

Wishing you all a very HAPPY & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.

WISHING u a very happy 2010.
