Presto Chocolate Cake with Choc Sauce

 



This is one of my old posts getting re posted. Photograph's precedence over recipe??? ;p Food for thought.

For the chocoholics Nishant Khanna and Mahua and their neighbour Disha!!!

eggs-2
cocoa powder-1/2 cup
butter-1/2 cup softened (100 gm)
all purpose flour-2 cups
sourless plain yoghurt (curd)-1/2 cup
vanilla essence-1 tsp
soda bicarb (soda powder)-3/4 tsp
powdered sugar-2 cups
lukewarm water-1/2 cup

Beat the eggs lightly with a fork. add all the ingredients in their order; mix well with your hands and bake till done. yes, you read right. it's just this much and believe me the cake will surpass you expectations. you don't have to mess your beater (personally i love hand-mixed batter). i never even followed the order but still it came out so good!


 
milk-1/2 cup
powdered sugar-1/2 cup
cornflour-1 tbsp
cocoa powder-1 tbsp
butter-1 tbsp
dash of instant coffee powder (i use nescafe).

Boil all of it together and shut off when it thickens after boiling. over the cake you got to pour it hot. you can serve it cold with muffins, either way.
