Ingredients:

  • Eggs – 4
  • Cocoa Powder – 1/2 cup
  • Butter – 3/4 cup
  • Powdered Sugar – 1 1/4 cup
  • Baking POwder – 1 3/4 tsp
  • All purpose flour / Maida – 1 cup
  • Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
  • Baking soda – 1/4 tsp
Method:
  • Keep all ingredients ready with the above mentioned measurements before you start preparing the cake.
  • If you do not have powered sugar, powder it and then measure. Here you will need 1 1/4 cup.
  • Sieve maida, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder thrice so that all are very well mixed.
  • Softened the butter before beating. Do not melt.
  • Eggs should be at room temperature. If refrigerated keep them out for about an hour before baking.
  • Grease the baking tray with butter and dust with Maida so that the cake comes off easily once baked. You can miss this step if you have a greased tray.
  • Preheat at 180-200 degree Celsius till it becomes hot
  • Beat butter and sugar in a bowl till light and fluffy. Make sure to beat in one direction
  • Beat eggs separately one by one with vanilla essence.
  • Add beaten egg to the butter-sugar and mix well. Do not allow the mixture to curdle
  • Mix the sieved flour to the butter-sugar-egg mixture slowly and fold to a dropping consistency. Do not allow to curdle
  • Pour this mixture into the baking tray and bake for 220 degree Celsius for about 20 minutes. Time may vary for each oven.
  • Check if the cake is baked with a tooth pick. The cake is done if it comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and place it on a wire rack and allow to cool.

Thank You Didi! Just brought back memories when Mum would bake for us.
