- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 285 g of dahi
- 150 g of caster sugar
- 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
- 1.5 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of choco-chips
For the chocolate glaze
2 cup roughly chopped dark chocolate
1 tbsp of vegetable oil
*In a bowl begin by adding a cup of yoghurt or dahi and to it add half a teaspoon of baking soda. Mix it well and keep it aside or approximately 5 minutes, you will notice air bubbles forming in the yoghurt.
*In a separate bowl, add 1.5 cups of all-purpose flour and add 1 teaspoon of baking powder. Mix it well and set it aside as well.
*In a large glass bowl, it is time to add 3/4 cup of superfine caster sugar along with 1/2 cup of vegetable oil. To this also add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Whisk it nicely for 2 minutes and then add the yoghurt and whisk it enough so that there aren’t any lumps and you have a smooth mixture at hand.
*Time to add the dry ingredients, add the all-purpose flour mixture to the wet ingredients and using the spatula gently mix everything.
*Add half a cup of chocolate chips and mix it gently. Take a cake tin and generously cover it with butter and line it with parchment sheet.
*Pour the batter and bake it in a pre-heated oven at180 degree celsius for 30-45 minutes.
*On to garnishing, it is time to make the chocolate glaze. Roughly chop the dark chocolate and set a pan with a cup of water on medium flame. Next place a heatproof bowl into the pan, this step results in a double boiler. This method doesn’t let the chocolate burn.
*Add the roughly chopped dark chocolate to the heatproof bowl and stir it while it continues to melt. Add 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable oil and continue to stir it. Turn off the heat and keep it aside.
*Take out the cake from the oven and let it cool down. Once it has, pour the glaze on the cake and enjoy!
