When I started my blog 2 months back, all I had was just a NAME and a simple-silly xplanation for it (link)…… but look what I have now…..YOU ALL!!!!! I’m glad I started Temptations! I wud like to thank each and every one for your wonderful support. And what possibly can be the best way to show my gratitude!!!
So i decided to GO CHOCOLATY today and made this chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. Since i made a cake anyways, i'm sending it to the event For the Love of Chocolate hosted by Poornima.
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup HERSHEY'S unsweetened Cocoa
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Grease and flour the baking pan, you can use any shape.
Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl.
Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer for 2 minutes.
Stir in boiling water. This will make the batter lil thinner.
Pour batter into the prepared pan.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan .
Frosting has to be done only after the cake cools completely otherwise icing will just melt.
For MAKING OF CHOCOLATE FROSTING
Add small amount additional milk, if needed.
It makes about 2 cups frosting.
How about caramel topping on the cake, it just tastes heavenly!!
For those of you who don't have time, to make things simpler and quicker you can use storebought cake mix and prepare the cake. You can get frosting also from the store but i personally prefer home made frosting as it will have a consistency and freshness. Once again i thank you all for being there! Have a nice day!
