- Choco powder
- Dark chocolate / Cooking chocolate
- Refined flour
- Choco chips
- Castor Sugar
Take a bowl of water and allow it to boil and place another bowl on top of it and start adding dark chocolate, butter and wait until it melts. Never heat chocolate on direct flame.
After it melts, mix it properly till you get the perfect shine. Add 4 eggs and keep stirring till the eggs get diluted properly. Place a strainer and add 4cups of refined flour, choco powder, a pinch of salt, 2 cups of sugar, and butter in it and mix it. If you think the batter is quite hard, then add few drops of lukewarm water and keep stirring it. Use a hand blender to mix it. Make sure you mix it well to get a soft, fluffy cake. Mixing is an important process in baking. After you are satisfied with the texture of the batter, and then add choco chips.
Keep the batter at rest for 10 minutes.
Since I did it in pressure cooker, this process is a bit different from a microwave one.
Pre-heat the pressure cooker and sprinkle salt at the bottom. Take a medium size pan or you can use mould, grease it with butter and sprinkle some flour and dust the excess. Pour the batter and place it inside the pre heated cooker and bake it for 30-45 minutes. Keep checking it at regular intervals to make sure it doesn’t get burnt.
After the cake is done, take it out of the cooker and allow it to cool. After few minutes, take the cake out of the pan or mould and use castor sugar for icing.
